"Uncle Drew," The feature film starring Boston Celtics star Kyrie Irving leads a team of basketball legend-geriatric is shot and reviews are in.  The general mood is that, hey, the movie is pretty charming and funny – considering that it comes out of a Pepsi ad.
The film features Irving in heavy make-up titled "Uncle Drew," pulling together a team of equally artificial-aged basketball stars for a basketball tournament.
Uncle Drew's big names include Shaquille O'Neal, Reggie Miller, Chris Webber, Nate Robinson and Lisa Leslie.
Here is a summary of the reviews for the movie and what critics think of it.
New York Times
"It's not every day that you can say," Shaquille O'Neal was the best actor in this movie.
The Boston Globe
"Celtics fans probably want to know two things about Uncle Drew," the new comedy starring the team's biggest star, Kyrie Irving. In ascending order of urgency, they are: Is the movie good, and does Irving embarrass himself? The answers are: somehow and not nearly. "
The Chicago Tribune
" Somewhat as cheesy and predictable as it is, and even works with a tsunami of product placement. It's pretty funny; it is quite charming; it is good-natured. And as a bonus, it's neither a "Star Wars" nor a Marvel movie.
SCORE: 3/4 stars
