Uncorked is a tepid drama of black family life in Memphis...[a] mild film.
July 21, 2020
Overall, Uncorked is a film that will test how you view the family drama. Perhaps it'll even expand how you view it, depending on how you like the unresolved ending.

Uncorked is modest in its ambition but the smoothness it achieves is of the highest order.

Uncorked is a surprisingly delightful and original film that explores the niche topic of winery expertise, and still finds a way to tell a heartfelt story of family and dreams.

The story - someone pursues an unusual profession to the chagrin of their family - is familiar. Luckily, the direction is deft and the acting is great (Courtney B. Vance is, as always, a standout), putting 'Uncorked' slightly higher than its peers.

A fresh perspective with a dose of originality.

Flavoursome enough without being especially nourishing, this will still be enjoyed by many out there looking for some sentimental sweetness in dark times.
April 10, 2020
The acting is unforced and the performers appealing.

Niecy Nash deserves a compliment for combining her comic moments with her character's more serious nature... However, Uncorked is nothing more than a complacent and sentimental film with a uniquel setting. [Full review in Spanish]

"Uncorked" pours an old, old wine into an unexpected new bottle, and while the results are hardly vintage, it still goes down better than two-buck chuck.
April 4, 2020
Piquant, precise, and charming from top to bottom, Uncorked instantly enters the pantheon of great wine movies...
April 4, 2020
A fresh and compelling drama about a man with a dream goes down like a very fine wine.
April 3, 2020
Moving coming-of-age story has mature themes, cursing.

Athie, Vance, and Nash are all doing terrific work, which only adds to what a film like this is capable of.

One thing Uncorked gets right about Memphis barbecue is the deeply personal connection our restaurateurs have with their cuisine.
April 1, 2020
Niecy Nash almost steals the movie as a proud mother who just wants her son to be happy. Her scenes with Mamoudou Athie are pure joy!

First-time feature writer-director Prentice Penny maintains a superbly intimate atmosphere that offers glimpses into the minds and emotions of the characters, tracing a young man's journey as he chases his dream.

Captures an energy that's far too common in modern culture in regards to what we pursue, why we pursue it, and the way we dream. We all should be paying attention.
March 30, 2020
The film isn't without its flaws, but they're all forgivable in light of how well it hits the feel-good bullseye.
March 30, 2020
It's sweet, medium-bodied, and unchallenging. It's the kind of movie anyone can easily curl up with, without too much thought. Just don't forget the wine.
