UNCLE NICK REVIEWED

“Uncle Nick” uses the Ten Cent Beer Night MLB fiasco in a way that I never thought possible. Framed almost like a play, Brian Posehn leads us into how a simple drunk can ruin the Holidays. It’s not played for direct comedy, but laughs happens. What results is a study of fractured people held together by their love for each other. Plus, Posehn spends his time lusting after his step-niece. It’s fun for the whole family!

The nature of the film will irk a lot of viewers expect bawdry comedy. The film runs at a quick clip and it doesn’t let up on the dry delivery. If you’re expecting raucous material, I can’t help but you push off to a different film. Adsit, Pyle, Posehn and Brewster are masters at a gentler edgy comedy without having to be in the audience’s face. I still have no idea why Errol Morris chose to present the film, but I guess he’s a fan.

There’s plenty here to like it, but the audience for it will be small at first. Take that for what you will and at least try to stream it.
