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.
November 20, 2019
Nothing more than a conventional Hollywood romantic-comedy hidden under a torrent of used Kleenex.
June 7, 2019
A guilt-free pleasure!

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.

For a film that is directly about finding substance in modern relationships to divert from the crass lack of realism and overt stylisation of porn, it's ironic how Levitt's film seems devoid of it.

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.

Like porn itself, reaction will vary.

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.
September 5, 2017
Don Jon is breezy, provocative and definitely makes for an interesting discourse of sex and relationships. Check it out.

As a simple and sweet coming-of-age story for the Jersey Shore generation, it's perfectly entertaining stuff.
June 21, 2016
He's got a good ear for guy-talk dialogue, and a welcome sense of candor-he's putting some stuff out there about guys and porn. As a director, he's got a keen visual wit; the film has a fast, popping montage style that recalls early Aronofsky.
June 7, 2016
In terms of disposable, enjoyable entertainment, you could do much worse than this.
May 10, 2016
In this raunchy, foul-mouthed and candid comedy about male narcissism, Gordon-Levitt _ perhaps best remembered as Leonardo DiCaprio's sidekick in Inception _ gives us a sure-footed directorial debut.
April 18, 2016
The only trouble with Don Jon is the film's comfort level with the kind of material that holds its hero enslaved.
April 9, 2016
There's just enough charm and poignancy here to make it worth a watch. Not a bad start for any first-time filmmaker.
