Don Jon Reviews
February 24, 2021
Gordon-Levitt makes his point well in a lively, funny and very promising debut.

A stylish, crude look at romance with loads of laughs. It shows off Joseph Gordon-Levitt's promise as a filmmaker, but more importantly it reinvents the rom com in a fun - although vulgar - way.

Despite a rather limiting viewpoint on porn and what constitutes healthy sexuality, Don Jon is an enjoyable and very funny deconstruction of the ways in which we objectify each other and ourselves.

Joseph Gordon-Levitt's directorial debut is blessed with a tremendous female ensemble (Brie Larson, Julianne Moore and Scarlett Johansson) that lifts it higher than its thin rom-com premise.

It's a tremendously entertaining and thought-provoking film.

Joseph Gordon-Levitt shows promising ability as a filmmaker. He demonstrates strong control and interest in topics not often explored in the mainstream

Joseph Gordon-Levitt is no flash in the pan as a writer or director. There is a confidence to the performance, and more importantly, to the production as a whole.

Nothing more than a conventional Hollywood romantic-comedy hidden under a torrent of used Kleenex.

It's funny and smart, with good performances sprinkled throughout.

Don Jon is simply too broad to make hay out of its mildly provocative premise.

Don Jon isn't just a good effort from a first-time director. It's a pretty good film on its own too.

Still, while Don Jon is far from subtle, it's still smart, honest, salaciously funny and, at times, pleasantly surprising. It'll be very interesting to see what that kid from that TV show does next.

The entire film is elevated by Julianne Moore, who is meant to illustrate the difference in maturity levels in the characters, but also demonstrates the difference in levels of acting ability in the actors.

Joseph Gordon-Levitt in his directorial and writer debut gives us a film that is filled with some laugh out loud moments and if we can get past the frothiness, it is definitely a film worth seeing.

Gordon Levitt, also the author of the script, is terribly funny... [Full review in Spanish]

Gordon-Levitt's more modest aims help the last act's moralizing go down smoother than Steve McQueen's tongue-clucking opus, but only just.

Don Jon is breezy, provocative and definitely makes for an interesting discourse of sex and relationships. Check it out.
