JUST GETTING STARTED — Review by Lauren Veneziani

0 Flares 0 Flares ×

This is probably the most brutal I will ever be in a review of a film. I love movies. I even love having fun with bad movies. But Just Getting Started is a movie that never should have been made.

Here we go. We have a great cast — Morgan Freeman, Tommy Lee Jones, Rene Russo. But skip this movie and see anything else they’ve been in. I’m not sure what they were thinking — maybe the film ended up being different from what they had in their minds, but the execution of the film wasn’t well done. It is about two guys who are retired. They live in Palm Springs. They are vying for the attention of Rene Russo. The plot is not worth discussing. I did not laugh once. It is a short film — and hour and a half. And it is not worth seeing in a movie theater. See the cast in anything else. I’m giving it one out of five stars.

Originally aired on WBAL-TV, Baltimore, on December 11, 2017
