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.

A guilt-free pleasure!

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

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.

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]

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.

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.

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.
June 28, 2014
It's in movies like the ribald but surprisingly endearing sex comedy Don Jon that Gordon-Levitt has connected best with audiences.
April 16, 2014
Don Jon is no kind of resonating masterpiece, but it's intelligent, thoughtful, funny, and dedicated to the cause of finding a personality and sticking with him through the excess of his addictions.
February 14, 2014
Thankfully, the women of the film are what save the movie, bringing something fresh to the table-for Jon, a chance at lasting love, and for us, some seasoned comic chops.
