NBA star Kyrie Irving dons old-man makeup for this utterly mind-boggling sports comedy in which his titular protagonist recruits his old team of washed-up basketball players to take part in a Harlem street ball tournament.
Irving is joined by basketball legends Shaq, Reggie Miller, Chris Webber and Nate Robinson as a team of old fogies picking up their balls for the first time in years - get it? - in what appears to be a painfully broad, one-note joke of a premise. Oof.
It basically looks like a vaguely amusing idea for a short film that someone ill-advisedly stretched out to feature length.
Predicted Box Office: $50 million. Basketball fans are a rabid, loyal bunch, and it's easy to see this film performing moderately well against its clearly small budget.
It honestly looks like Shaq and co. mostly did the film for kicks rather than a fat paycheck, so it shouldn't have a problem making decent bank, especially being counter-programmed against Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, which releases the week before.
Which of these guaranteed money-makers do you most want to bomb at the box office? Shout them out in the comments!
