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 ,,, not bad at all...
15 September 2018 | by Aktham_TashtushSee all my reviews

So i thought the movie at first would look much like a Madea movie .. but it actually was enjoyable .. it was a bit slow and dull in the beginning but had a few jokes ,, had me giggling for a bit .. then the tournament and the action started and the whole thing turned to be nice movie over all.

As for the cast ,, i barely watch basketball,, even though i'm a fan ,, but of course i know Shaquille O'Neal and watched a couple videos for Webber and Reggie Miller and sure Irving, "Celtics fan in here" .. and they all did really good ,, i mean Shaq is hilarious and Lil Rel Howery did a fine job gluing all together.

final thought ,, not the most amazing sports movie ever,, but it's a nice comedy family movie ,, so it is recommended.
