Uncle Drew

Sports comedy from the director of Drumline, starring NBA All-Star Kyrie Irving as the character from his Pepsi Max commercials. Co-stars Lil Rel Howery (Get Out) and Shaquille O'Neal.

After draining his life savings to enter a team in a Harlem street ball tournament, Dax (Lil Rel Howery) loses his team to his longtime rival (Nick Kroll). Down and out, Dax stumbles upon the legendary Uncle Drew (Irving) and convinces him to return to the court one more time. The guys round up Drew's old basketball squad (O'Neal, Chris Webber, Reggie Miller, Nate Robinson, and Lisa Leslie) and prove that a group of septuagenarians can still win big.

Alas, the resulting film, made in association with Pepsi and directed by Charles Stone III, falls into a disappointingly formulaic lull for large stretches, squeezing all spontaneity from the proceedings.
