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 a big basketball fan, but still loved this movie
29 September 2018 | by desmondsmith-252-66701See all my reviews

I didn't know what to expect when I started this movie, I had never heard of it and didn't even know who was in it. Once it started I was a bit underwhelmed as they built the characters up, but then an amazing thing happened, the story started coming together. Then I started noticing the little things, like the fact that there wasn't a lot of adult references or bad language. Naturally this appealed to the father in me because there's always a lack of movies to watch with the kids.

By the time I was half way into this movie, the characters were building and I became fully interested.

Bad acting and all, this movie was hilarious and brought me job.

I love how the basketball players kind of play an older self and I also love the roles of Nick Kroll and Lil Ray Howrey, they were awesome and kept me interested.

Losing a great team, then creating and "old" team, then challenging the very man that stole your team in the finale proves for a great movie with a lot of laughs.
