November 14, 2013
In a bravura performance, Gordon-Levitt sleazily revels in the role of bad boy...but it's a character undistinguished by light or shade and becomes wearing, a sex drive that ends up a cul-de-sac.

These are caricatures rather than characters, and neither Levitt nor Moore ever quite lock step with the film's snappy sitcom tone.
November 14, 2013
The naff accents and exaggerated mannerisms become very tiring over 90 minutes.
November 13, 2013
The work of a young director reaching to impress without having fully formed ideas ...
November 12, 2013
As a director, Gordon-Levitt demonstrates considerable technical flair through stylistic flourishes and coaxes great performances out of his co-stars.
November 11, 2013
A lively, savvy film with some great performances from some surprising quarters.

Smart, witty and more than a little melancholy, Don Jon is a fist-pumping success.
October 21, 2013
Though Don Jon succeeds in being funny at every turn, it is less successful in being a movie with something important to say.
October 20, 2013
a fascinating and often compelling film, and a clear sign that Gordon-Levitt is a filmmaker of note whose future is bright if he continues to not play it safe

Don Jon is a solid debut, but my guess is that Joseph Gordon-Levitt will have some more exciting cinematic adventures for us as his career behind the camera continues

Gordon-Levitt shows promise as a director and his debut has bags of cinematic swagger.

Don Jon is a terrific directorial debut from Gordon-Levitt - funny, moving and with something to say about family and relationships.
October 11, 2013
Gordon-Levitt has such a charismatic screen personality we can forgive him - to a degree - for most of his storytelling faults.
October 7, 2013
Joseph Gordon-Levitt has not yet reached the "star" level where he can carry a movie.
October 4, 2013
A film with tense, ironic energy in the way that scenes flow and shots collide, but in a way that feels a bit overfamiliar and safe.
October 4, 2013
Joseph Gordon-Levitt makes an assured debut as a writer-director with Don Jon, a cultural critique of the expectations placed on relationships in an environment saturated with media misrepresentations of both women and men.

Joseph Gordon-Levitt turns the gym-tan-laundry routine into an art form with Don Jon, his vibrant and viciously profane directorial debut.
October 3, 2013
Joseph Gordon-Levitt has teetered on being the Next Big Thing. He's finally there with 'Don Jon,' a grownups-only movie about addiction and compulsion in which he stars. He also wrote and directed this movie about a man's obsession with pornography.
October 3, 2013
This is a very funny, well-written film. Unlike most romantic comedies, it is both thought-provoking and introspective.
