Manny’s Movie Review: Uncle Drew

News Staff

Based on a series of viral Pepsi commercials, “Uncle Drew” debuts on the big screen with Kyrie Irving in the titular role bringing with him a bunch of his NBA pals for this surprisingly sweet and funny sports comedy.  Chris Webber, Reggie Miller, Nate Robinson, Shaquille O’Neal, and WNBA’s Lisa Leslie spent hours in make-up in order to play septuagenarian ballers and former teammates of Uncle Drew.

Lil Rel Howery stars as Dax, the underdog who needs help from Uncle Drew and his team to win the Rucker Streetball competition.  Nick Kroll and Tiffany Haddish complete the cast.

“Uncle Drew” is from a script by Jay Longino and directed by Charles Stone III.  It’s the first full-feature film based on a famous commercial but will we see more movies based on advertising campaigns?  And how many kisses does “Uncle Drew” get?
