In Uncle Drew, basketball coach Dax Winslow (Lil Rel Howery) convinces septagenerian basketball legend Uncle Drew (Kyrie Irving) to return to the court to help him defeat a rival team. I follow the Cavs, but I don’t really know basketball, so I went into viewing this film, in Main Library’s Community Room, thinking it would be a mediocre comedy.
One of the basketball greats I did know, Shaquille O’Neal played Big Fella. I didn’t know the other greats, but I felt the appreciation from the rest of the Movies @ Main audience.
Even if you don’t know much about basketball, the camaraderie and comedy between the players is infectious. The ending is predictable, but the cast of comedians and basketball legends had fantastic chemistry and complemented each other. Stop by the Audiovisual Department or call 419-521-3120 to find out what the next Movies @ Main feature is.
