Just Getting Started

Just Getting Started ★★½

For a Christmastime-set comedy directed by Ron Shelton and starring Moran Freeman, Rene Russo, and Tommy Lee Jones, "Just Getting Started" is awfully forgettable. The film about hijinks and assassination attempts at a Palm Springs adult community is watchable, but the story does not go anywhere of real interest. The leads are solid, the high-desert vistas are lovely, and Shelton puts together some entertaining moments. None of it, however, seems to matter in the final assessment, and the entire experience feels paper thin.
