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.

Joseph Gordon-Levitt turns the gym-tan-laundry routine into an art form with Don Jon, his vibrant and viciously profane directorial debut.
September 27, 2013
Offbeat, frank and often surprising gem.

Gordon-Levitt has crafted a whip-smart, richly cinematic film with some very funny moments and a lot of heart.
