Uncle DrewAfter draining his life savings to enter a team in the Rucker Classic street ball tournament in Harlem, Dax (LilRel Howery) is dealt a series of unfortunate setbacks, including losing his team to his longtime rival (Nick Kroll). Desperate to win the tournament and the cash prize, Dax stumbles upon the man, the myth, the legend Uncle Drew (NBA All-Star Kyrie Irving) and convinces him to return to the court one more time. The two men embark on a road trip to round up Drew's old basketball squad (Shaquille O'Neal, Chris Webber, Reggie Miller, Nate Robinson, and Lisa Leslie) and prove that a group of septuagenarians can still win the big one.Keywords:

Critic Reviews of "Uncle Drew"The AtlanticJuly 08, 2018
The jokes could be dirtier, the plot looser, the basketball action more gleefully ludicrous. Instead, everything feels very competent but safe.What the Flick?!July 06, 2018
It's a totally formulaic sports movie, but it's got a lot of liveliness to it and watching these guys play off of each other is fun.San Diego ReaderJune 29, 2018
Leave Jurassic World to the kiddies and spend a few hours in the dark with these irresistible dinosaurs.RogerEbert.comJune 29, 2018
Uncle Drew mistakes its goofy pitch for a free pass to be simple with its comedy, and sappy with its emotions.Chicago Sun-TimesJune 28, 2018
Lil Rel Howery, Tiffany Haddish, JB Smoove and Nick Kroll are terrific, as we'd expect. It's more of a surprise that basketballers Irving, Miller, Robinson, Leslie, et al., are also quite good.Toronto StarJune 28, 2018
Uncle Drew is more than a vehicle to sell cola, not to mention basketball's chief product-placement fetish, sneakers. It's also a sweet-intentioned bit of summer fun.CinemalogueJuly 20, 2018
The game plan feels too conservative, not allowing the playmaking stars to just do their thing.National ReviewJuly 17, 2018
"Uncle Drew confirms the urban legend that the best stand-up comedy, face-to-face drama, and spontaneously creative choreography can be found on city basketball courts."Sacramento News & ReviewJuly 11, 2018
The message is undercut by the fact that they're all decades younger than the movie says they are, and under the amateurish old-age makeup, they aren't actors enough to make it work.Aisle SeatJuly 10, 2018
An amiable, good-natured film that delivers little of substance other than a pleasant "forget about the outside world" experience for 103 minutes. Sometimes that's good enough.Sunday Times (UK)July 09, 2018
Those player-performers are good value, though, and the film is vibrant and occasionally funny.Empire MagazineJuly 08, 2018
Its heart is in the right place, but some lively performances from the better-than-you'd-expect ballers-turned-actors can only paper over a thin, cliché-riddled script so much.
