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.

Gordon-Levitt is on top form, as is Johansson as the type of girl who only takes her gum out to eat.

Gordon-Levitt's confidence is appealing, even if the film itself mistakes redundancy for profundity.

The messages of the film are stark and genuine, much more so than one might expect having seen the promotional material.

A thoughtful, original and provocative feature-length directorial debut from Joseph Gordon-Levitt.

It gets harder and harder to support this passion for porn.

A film that should be compulsory viewing for all preteens, sexual content be damned, as it may just save them a lifetime of disappointment.

It's refreshing to see a movie so visually undemonstrative.

With this writing-directing debut, Joseph Gordon-Levitt delivers a remarkably assured comedy-drama while also giving himself a role that's far against his usual type.
November 14, 2013
A minor triumph that manages to raise some big laughs while delivering a thought-provoking message.

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.
November 12, 2013
As a director, Gordon-Levitt demonstrates considerable technical flair through stylistic flourishes and coaxes great performances out of his co-stars.
