Uncle Nino



Critic Consensus: Critics say that despite a warm, well-meaning message about the importance of family ties, Uncle Nino is utterly corny and predictable.

All Critics (35) | Top Critics (16)

A third-rate Robin Williams movie that didn't even have the decency to hire Robin Williams.

Shallcross fails to infuse the proceedings with the wit or distinctiveness necessary to lift it above the crop of its so many similar-themed predecessors.

Top Critic

There's not a single surprise or moment of dramatic tension.

An effortless heartwarmer that manages to be utterly corny but quite likable.
