The naff accents and exaggerated mannerisms become very tiring over 90 minutes.

Hearing the star of "Who's the Boss?" drop about 500 f-bombs is one of the film's few pleasures.

There's little here to care for or about: what promises to be a friskier version of Shame winds up closer to a Very Special Episode of Jersey Shore.

On page and screen, Gordon-Levitt mostly fails to transform his bulky title protagonist into a multi-dimensional figure. He belongs in the final 15 minutes of an SNL episode, not at the center of a full-sized comedy.

Wondering what exactly is revealed as a cure to Don Jon's addiction? Why, good sex, of course! Thanks, geniuses!

I wish Gordon-Levitt had done a lot more with this material. There was definitely potential there. (Full Content Review for Parents also available)

The final moments hint at beauty and grace in Jon's new relationship, but for the movie, it's already too late.

The work of a young director reaching to impress without having fully formed ideas ...

An overheated disquisition on the pleasures and limitations of masturbation.

Joseph Gordon-Levitt's directorial debut, Don Jon, does for porn-dependence what Shame did for sex addiction by offering a surface-level look at the effects of its specific pathology on its lead male character.

In his writing-directing debut, actor Joseph Gordon-Levitt fails to identify a purpose that might bring audiences into his passion project.

Much like its main character, this comedy is good-hearted, a bit clumsy, endearing, and incredibly rough around the edges.

It's never boring, but the film plays like a thesis on the modern condition more than a genuine depiction of a romantic relationship.

These are caricatures rather than characters, and neither Levitt nor Moore ever quite lock step with the film's snappy sitcom tone.

Funny at times and touches on some interesting issues. But the Jersey caricature is so embarrassing that it ultimately sinks the film.

Crude, repetitive and rigorously single-minded, the popular actor's writing and directing debut lays it all on a bit thick, as the few points the film has to make are underscored time and time again.

When you look past Don Jon as Gordon-Levitt's movie cotillion, it's a painfully superficial and paint-by-numbers story that offers very little character development.
