Just Getting Started Trailer #1 (2017) “Do You Men Hear Yourselves?” “Why….Should We?”

Just Getting Started is an action comedy in the vein of Midnight Run about an ex-FBI agent (Jones) and an ex-mob lawyer in the witness protection program (Freeman) having to put aside their petty rivalry on the golf course to fend off a mob hit.
