Just Getting Started

Critics Consensus

A thoroughly unfunny misfire, Just Getting Started manages the incredible feat of wasting more than a century of combined acting experience from its three talented leads.

Critic Reviews for Just Getting Started

All Critics (23) | Top Critics (10) | Fresh (1) | Rotten (22)

  • 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.

    March 25, 2020 | Full Review…
  • 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.

    December 14, 2017 | Full Review…
  • Dramatically and comically impotent.

    December 13, 2017 | Rating: C- | Full Review…
  • This wheezy romantic caper ... inspires little more than melancholy reminiscences of Mr. Shelton's earlier work.

    December 12, 2017 | Full Review…
  • A rather lazy boondoggle by Shelton, who waited 14 years to direct again and didn't bother to make it worthwhile.

    December 8, 2017 | Rating: 1/4 | Full Review…
  • Just Getting Started simply never does get started. It's D.O.A.

    ..... I have no words. I know actors do movies out of contractual obligation or just for a paycheck, but do they ever NOT make a movie out of pride?
