Don Jon Reviews

    I loved it. I really understood the characters and was happy with the growth they showed by the end. I hope things continue to progress in their fictional world.

    Unless you have a very low IQ, don't watch it! Terrible movie...

    I never thought I'd see a movie that had me hating Joseph Gordon Levitt's character. But if they all came off as scum, that implies good acting I guess? Still, strange movie with walking NJ stereotypes and no real payoff at the end

    What a movie? I think every guy needs to see this. By god this movie has a whole lotta truth. Starring Joseph Gordon levitt and scarlet Johansson they both are phenomenal. Both they're New York accents or New Jersey accents. I don't know accents. Anyway they're accents were funny and entertaining. This is a very easy movie to watch and at the end you get a message and or learning point. In this day and age watching you know can become very addicting and it can ruin your life sometimes and they show it in this movie really good. After this movie was over I was like dang what a movie. It's the fastest hour and 30 something minutes that I've seen in a long time. Yes its dumb at times but that's how life is and the positives highly outweigh the negatives. In the end I highly highly recommended this movie for any and every guy. Great movie.

    C'mon people... 58%? I'm giving this one 5 stars just because it deserves better than that. Don Jon tackles some pretty taboo subjects, and still manages to be pretty witty and pretty funny. Rarely does a movie look porn so squarely in the eye... and I'm pretty sure aLOT of these 1-star reviews are coming from Bible-thumpers who don't appreciate that. Okay, it's certainly not the deepest flick of the decade. However, it is a clever take on a touchy subject (pun intended), and absolutely not a bad freshman directorial effort.

    It's great. not for 4 stars though. There's a lot strong points, and ideas, and Levitt is so underrated. But some parts are a bit sloppy.

    Non sarà il film che esplora nel modo più dettagliato possibile le varie sfumature della sessualità, ma riesce a toccare argomenti particolarmente delicati con una sicurezza davvero niente male. Si tratta di un'esperienza leggermente volgare e molto frizzante, forse fin troppo veloce, che diverte quanto basta e propone una morale debole ma efficace in alcune occasioni.

    Don Jon is the directorial debut of Joseph Gordon Levitt. The film is a romcom with explicit and graphic scenes since the story deals with porn addiction. Levitt stars as the titular character who is an Italian macho man who is obsessed with women and sex. Levitt pulls a good performance that's absurd, funny, and charming for comedic purposes that make us like his character and care for him. The script is well written and Scarlett Johansson's performance as an over sexualized woman is cliché but appropriate. Julianne Moore does a small role here but her performance is key to the story. The film drives home effectively the dangers of porn objectification of women, and our culture's obsession with sex. The film overkills too much the sexual part and porn making it excessive and repeats itself too much.But the film's message about love over lust and great comedic moments make it a very well done film.

    As a directorial debut— I'm not bashing it, at all— but regardless of its sweet message and clean editing, some of the nature surrounding it just didn't seem to fit. 6.6/10
