After draining his life savings to enter his team in the Rucker Classic street ball tournament in Harlem, basketball coach Dax (Lil Rel Howery) loses his team (and girlfriend) to his longtime rival Mookie (Nick Kroll).

Desperate to win the tournament and the cash prize, Dax meets the legendary basketball player Uncle Drew (Kyrie Irving) and convinces him to return to the court one more time.

The two men round up Drew’s old basketball team (Shaquille O’Neal, Chris Webber, Reggie Miller, Nate Robinson, and Lisa Leslie) and prove that a group of seventy+ year-old men can still win the big one.

UNCLE DREW is fast-paced and entertaining, with a warm, uplifting story that is inspirational and guaranteed to make you laugh – especially if you like basketball, and even if  you don’t.
