Unfunny mishmash buddy comedy (of sorts) that got lost in translation
“Just Getting Started” was directed by Ron Shelton. It’s his first film since 2003’s and it shows that he isn’t quite on his A game. For the actors, this is one of those films where it’s obvious that everyone involved is in it for the paycheck. There is no life to this senior comedy, not whatsoever. Whats worse is that movie really goes down the drain in the final thirty minutes, when it suddenly becomes an action movie. Don’t waste your time on it, because it is a laugh less comedy, an excitement-free action picture and an unromantic love story.
Did a 5th grader write and direct this immature nonsense?
I could not believe the shockingly low score for this film with such an all star cast. Once I saw it, I realized it was in fact deserving of the 3.8 IMDb rating, and only so high, from the sympathetic votes for these A-listers when they realized what they had signed up for.
So here’s what I think happened. Ron Shelton’s 5th grade grandson wrote and directed this nonsense but was too young to be named in the credits, so grandpa steps in and enters his name.
Next, Waze (the phone GPS app that was product-mentioned) funded this 5th graders film, and paid these A-list actors their wages so people will go see this mess, then leave the theater and download their app.
What else can it be? These huge actors did their worst… they hardly made an effort. The entire set was probably the after-party set up for when filming wrapped, just for the A-listers to have incentive to do some type of performance.
The directing and editing was, well, that of a 5th grader.
What a waste of talent on such a garbage screenplay.
A sympathetic 3/10 from me, only for the all star cast that got duped into making this nonsense.
