Just Getting Started

Just Getting Started ★½

Another comedy about the hijinks of older stars in the same vein as Going In Style, Just Getting Started takes its leads, Morgan Freeman and Tommy Lee Jones and puts in this silly storyline where they must compete for the affection of Rene Russo send to check out the senior resort Freeman runs. The challenges they put themselves through are at least entertaining enough to watch at times but the jokes are just groan worthy to sit through.
The main story of Freeman's past coming back to bite him and him and Jones teaming up(so predictable) was so laughingly absurd that it really becomes a chore to get through.
The supporting cast including Glenne Headly, Sheryl lee Ralph as suitors for the men and Joe Pantoliano and George Wallace are just window dressing to this absurd ordeal and Jane Seymour the icing on this cake giving a Razzie worthy performance as the main villain.
Everyone in this film is better than this material and it's a shame that their talents produced something so laughably bad.
It wasn’t offensively bad. It just wasn't good either.
