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.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/5
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.
Full Review | Original Score: .5/4

Dramatically and comically impotent.
Full Review | Original Score: C-
December 11, 2017
This wheezy romantic caper ... inspires little more than melancholy reminiscences of Mr. Shelton's earlier work.
December 9, 2017
"Just Wrapping Up" any career in comedy is more like it.
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/4

The problem with this tepid, senior-centric Christmas comedy is that it never really gets going. It's seasonal sludge.
Full Review | Original Score: 5/10
December 8, 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.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/4

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.
December 8, 2017
This mild and dawdling picture is the sort of trifle meant for a retirement-age audience who just want to spend a pleasant and uneventful hour-and-a-half with a few name actors of a certain age. There's very little comedy here and even less action.
December 8, 2017
Tonally bizarre, lazily performed, and deeply unfunny.
Full Review | Original Score: D-

Everyone involved in the making of Just Getting Started should be charged with war crimes. Okay, that's obviously just a joke, but my gosh, what an endurance test this movie is.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/4
