What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that Just Getting Started is a light action comedy starring an ensemble of actors over 60, including Academy Award winners Morgan Freeman and Tommy Lee Jones, as well as Rene Russo, Joe Pantoliano, and the late Glenne Headly. Considering that the plot centers around active (and sexually active) seniors, it's unlikely to appeal to teens, but families should note that these retirees aren't sweet little grandparents: They drink (as well as smoke/vape), gamble, and hook up -- a lot. (At the beginning of the movie, Freeman's character is clearly seeing three women at once, who wait for him in bed, the bath, etc.) They also swear (mostly "s--t," but there's also one F-bomb in the script). Expect some action violence, as there's a hit out against one character. There are explosions and a few scenes of gun violence, and one person is taken hostage. People shoot at one another, but there's only one serious injury.
