Lighthearted and fun for the holiday season (by debigoldben)
I like the main players in this movie and it was a refreshing change from the heavy, gloomy movies and news coverage. Is it their best acting? Probably not. Was it supposed to be? I don't think so. It was an opportunity for them to get together and have fun creating something that would make us laugh. If you need or want a little bit of joy and laughter ... go see this movie. If you're looking for serious, academy award winning performances, you'll want to pass. I typically only go to action or adventure movies ... this was a change of pace and it didn't disappoint in that <more>
regard. I'd go see it again, and I'll likely watch it several times when it makes it to Netflix or Amazon Prime. Maybe you nee to be over 40 to appreciate some of the "elder" humor ... it looks like it's young folks who aren't thrilled with it and there are some older folks who will may be offended by language, behavior, or conversations ... to them I would say "lighten up and have a little fun". The theater was FULL the day I went lots of retired folks ... everyone appeared to enjoy themselves. There was a lot of laughter and no one left during the movie.
It is what it is, and it is nicely consistent (by elektraz)
I read the reviews, but first I need to say that this is not my kind of movie. I ended up seeing it out of edition work.That being said, I found it quite nice and accommodating, for it is about old age and Christmas, and how things have a different feature when you know what is coming - fast in your case if you are at the end of your road. Great actors and actresses who are finally there - too old to rock'n'roll, too young to die - and that went on this movie for the pleasure of still be riding.If you expected anything different or more of it, the problem is yours - either you're <more>
not seasoned yet to appreciate the irony or just too out of your métier.
The Cowboy, the Playboy and the Career Woman (by imdb-936-837144)
"Just Getting Started" explores the interactions of the 'cowboy' Leo Tommy Lee Jones , the 'playboy' Duke Morgan Freeman and the 'career woman' Suzie Rene Russo as they find themselves in the luxury resort community Villa Capri. Leo acts like he owns the place although it's Duke's official fief. Suzie is a bit standoffish in her mysterious work role. The plot develops slowly at first while the movie gets started.Alfred Hitchcock employed the term MacGuffin to refer to a device introduced to move the plot along although of itself it is not <more>
significant to said plot, or at least not fully explained. Here the MacGuffin is what a student of the Proverbs might term a recurring tornado: ref. Prov. 10:25 "As the whirlwind passeth, so is the wicked no more: but the righteous is an everlasting foundation" The whirlwind is like the New Jersey mob in its devastation, gone once the law puts it out of business, using a good citizen's testimony, which qualifies him for the witness protection program where he can peacefully put down roots. Leo is such a one prospering in his adopted surroundings while keeping a low exterior profile. Alas for a T.V. clip that blows his cover "The s.o.b. is in Palm Springs!" His discovery leads to complications "They found me." The action is set during the few days leading up to Christmas. The music comes in fits and starts, with an emphasis occurring on the line: "God and sinners reconciled." Duke's sinful life consists of: "Sex, booze, and golf"--golf like many other of Duke's games includes wagers, gambling. The movie carefully avoids any religious conversion, but Duke's competition with well-heeled Leo leaves him no time for sex. World-wise Leo in fact takes on the role of guardian angel helping him avoid sin and more pragmatic dangers. Suzie whose "final marriage is my job" is sexless like the Virgin Mary, and she will exert a restraining, sobering influence on the Duke. As is pointed out, the wise men couldn't have got to Bethlehem without those camels, so could not the Christ child have arrived without Mary. Duke to win a combination play against Leo makes his final move where "his knees touched the floor." That's a common enough occurrence of those who pray, although here the movie just imitates aspects of the religious without actually going there.The movie was shot on location in New Mexico. It includes a guest appearance of and performance by Johnny Mathis. We get great comedic acting, enough suspense to keep us alert, a modicum of background Christmassy emblems without forcing religion , and some genuine shoot-'em-up action. It's a well done flick and should provide an alternative to the sorry Christmas fare that gets overly saccharine.
I needed a reason to smile, and this movie gave it to me! (by debi-13)
I read the negative and positive reviews. I fall on the positive side. Most of the positive ones were because they enjoyed a movie to watch with their younger family members. Well, I don't have the same concern. As an old fart, this movie made me feel younger at my age because the movie was about older people who lived vibrant lives for a moment in time and it reminded me that I too, can live a vibrant life even though I am older. Enjoy this movie. It will make you feel better.
Easy Story & Easy Jokes (by spider_pth)
This movie is taken to celebrate christmas and the new year's eve. I was reading the no good reviews and comments while I'm getting started to watch "Just Getting Started" and I proved it otherwise. The actors chosen are suits their character. And the lady too. It brought old memories about the jokes I had with my childhood buddies. The story is not "heavy" and suitable for a family to watch together.The conflicts, climax, and the relationship between them is well played.The Duke is acted by Morgan Freeman. In spite his petty cash taken lots from the company, he <more>
actually had a lot of brilliant ideas running the villa capri there, even though he managed the area as he sees fit based on his personal desire / not following the company protocols which lead him to be checked by the auditor from the company namely Suzie Quince. His employees dan his friends seems look up to him. I don't know whether from his money spending or just merely thoughtful buddy. Leo Mckay by Tommy Lee Jones. A businessman, A poet, A painter, A gentleman. The point is he has many advantages as a retire but his age. He appears to be left by his wife 6 years ahead. And willing to find a soulmate in recent time. And of course buy the villas. But I felt the reason why he's helping Sweet Willy is not strong enough. And disagree about the fight between santas. In my opinion it's enough by yelling and calling the security there to send out the hired santa. Overall this movie is good and I understand what the writer is trying to express PS : The mini-RV from the scene taken when Oscar was helding hostage Suzie Quince reminds me from the Geostorm's one.
