Storyline

Lewd, drunken Uncle Nick (Brian Posehn: Mr. Show & Sarah Silverman Program) stumbles his way through his brother's cookie-cutter family's annual Christmas gathering in the hopes of hooking up. Presented by Errol Morris, Uncle Nick is a comedy of inappropriate behavior, uncomfortably interrupted trysts, and a monumental over-serving of ten-cent beers.

Say hello to uncle Nick...
17 November 2016 | by paul_haakonsenSee all my reviews

I must admit that I didn't have any particular expectations to "Uncle Nick", so I was more than pleasantly surprised with how fun and entertaining this movie actually turned out to be.

Now, this is not your average run-of-the-mill Christmas comedy. No. "Uncle Nick" goes beyond simple humor and adds some dark and fairly weird layers to the frame. But it all works out quite nicely, because director Chris Kasick truly managed to utilize the full potential available here.

The story is about Nick (played by Brian Posehn) who go to spend Christmas with his younger brother Cody (played by Beau Ballinger), his brother's wife Sophie (played by Paget Brewster) and her daughter Valerie (played by Melia Renee) and son Marcus (played by Jacob Houston). However, Nick likes to drink more alcohol than he should, and there is little brotherly love between the two siblings.

It is the quirky characters that really shine in this movie, because there are so many of them. And having characters like this really brings a movie to life so well on the screen. And it really helps that they had cast some really good talents for the various roles, actors who individually also brought something good and unique to the movie.

This is not an in-your-face kind of comedy. No, the comedy here is dark and often subtle. But it works nicely in favor of the movie, especially because the comedy is tied to the characters and the situations that they find themselves in.

As I said earlier, then I was more than genuinely surprised with "Uncle Nick", and I most definitely was entertained. I am giving "Uncle Nick" a well-deserved six out of ten stars. If you enjoy seasonal comedies, then you should give "Uncle Nick" a chance.
