The producers must think this drivel is what their senior target audience wants, but only someone who's lost an appetite for real life could find any entertainment in it.

Scripts this bad will sometimes seem fun with enough enthusiasm behind or in front of the camera, but the star power on display isn't enough to make this anything but a (hopefully) forgettable misstep for all involved.

Just Getting Started never actually gets started, sputtering along until it finally loses steam and creaks to a predictable conclusion. It isn't funny, it isn't engaging and it just isn't any good.

The movie is a ghastly, ramshackle mess, lurching from gag to clunking gag and exacerbated by Barry Peterson's harsh cinematography, making everyone look considerably older than they are.

... writer-director Ron Shelton is a long way from the cerebral wit of his Bull Durham heyday.
December 15, 2017
Unfunny action comedy wastes great cast; violence, language.

Among the wisest things ever said about old age will always be the immortal dictum of Bette Davis: "Old age ain't for sissies." It also ain't for people whose skills have vanished completely but are pretending they haven't.

The climactic 20 minutes of Just Getting Started are so lazily directed that I wondered why Shelton bothered trying to put action into the movie at all.

If this is what the "golden years" are going to be like, count me out.

Not even two Oscar winners can save this garbage.

Dramatically and comically impotent.
December 12, 2017
This wheezy romantic caper ... inspires little more than melancholy reminiscences of Mr. Shelton's earlier work.

"Just Wrapping Up" any career in comedy is more like it.

The problem with this tepid, senior-centric Christmas comedy is that it never really gets going. It's seasonal sludge.
December 9, 2017
...nobody -- not the audience, and certainly not the cast -- deserves a clunker like this.
December 8, 2017
A rather lazy boondoggle by Shelton, who waited 14 years to direct again and didn't bother to make it worthwhile.
December 8, 2017
Just Getting Started simply never does get started. It's D.O.A.
December 8, 2017
Ron Shelton's lame comedy is an utterly useless misfire that brings out the worst in all parties involved.
December 8, 2017
The film is ingratiating enough, but its main value is to make us eager for another, more substantial Shelton movie long before another decade has slipped by.
December 8, 2017
Even a cast with this many award wins and nominations can't salvage a script that will have viewers audibly sighing, rather than laughing.
