  • Moviegoers who don't get a kick out of spotting athletes on the screen may be less than enthralled by the otherwise formulaic comeback flick, but sports-loving viewers will likely be more enthusiastic. show more

  • Uncle Drew is such a well-acted, warm-hearted basketball comedy that you’re liable to forget about its corporate origins. show more

  • This journey to cobble together the old squad should be more fun that it is. Although you could say that about most of Uncle Drew. The onus is less on the performances; each former player holds his/her own. show more
