Storyline

After draining his life savings to enter a team in the Rucker Classic street ball tournament in Harlem, Dax (Lil Rel 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. After a successful five years as a fan-favorite digital episodic series, originally conceived by Pepsi, UNCLE DREW, will hit theaters June 29, 2018. UNCLE DREW is a Summit Entertainment release produced by Temple Hill in association with PepsiCo's Creators League Studios.

Not bad
6 October 2018 | by orellana_utSee all my reviews

I'm a basketball fan, this movie was funny, and had a lot of celebrities in it. I enjoyed it.. wasn't bad.. chris Webber is awesome as the preacher, the chase scenes were funny... done expect an Oscar for best picture like some of these other ridiculous reviews were expecting a masterpiece.. it's a comedy calm down.. it was fun movie for the whole family..
