Editorial Reviews

Jon Martello (Joseph Gordon-Levitt) is a handsome, good old-fashioned guy known as Don Jon for his ability to bed beautiful women at will. But ironically, even the finest fling doesn't compare to the bliss Jon finds alone-watching porn on his computer. Barbara Sugarman (Scarlett Johansson) is a gorgeous, good old-fashioned girl raised on romantic movies, and she's determined to find her Prince Charming. Wrestling with expectations of the opposite sex, Jon and Barbara struggle against false fantasies to find true intimacy in this unexpected comedy written and directed by Joseph Gordon-Levitt.

4.0 out of 5 stars A fresh turn on relationship films November 5, 2013
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
Don Jon is a witty and thoughtful film about relationships. Jon treats everything in his life as objects he gains pleasure from, including the women he "scores" every weekend. But nothing can compare to the porn he accesses on his computer. The real life girls have the complications of being, well, REAL and don't always exactly match his lofty expectations. The porn girls don't disappoint, so he always returns to them.

Jon is a creature of habit - from his workout routine, to going to church (and confession, although he never actually changes his behavior), to cleaning his apartment, to Sunday dinner with his family (his family is wonderfully portrayed by Tony Danza, Glenn Headly and Brie Larson. All hilarious and convincing). When he meets Barbara (Scarlett Johannson), things are turned somewhat upside down. She's a true "10" and Jon is willing to change himself to get a chance to sleep with her. As much as Jon objectifies her as a sex object, she also objectifies him to be "starring" in one of the romantic movies she loves and tries to model her life after. Barbara has lot of qualifications that Jon has to conform to in order to be with her (go to school, get a better job, get a cleaning lady, etc.).

About half-way through the film, Jon meets Esther (Julianne Moore), an older woman who helps him to discover more about sex and connections and eventually himself. Jon's interactions with Esther are what elevates this movie from a witty rom-com to a real commentary on searching for oneself and forging true connections with others.

The beginning of the movie plays like a rom-com and is filled with lots of laughable moments. But as it goes on, it becomes a more serious commentary on how to open yourself to another person and how to transform One warning - if you're sensitive to frank sex talk or porn images, skip this one.

Format:DVD
Joseph Gordon-Levitt keeps testing his boundaries as an artist and that is to be applauded. The strength of his performances in the past few films grows steadily and now he branches out in to writing, directing, and starring in a film that is truly his own. Is it a great film? No, but it is an inventive one - and that is a breath of fresh air in the current Marvel Comics shoot-`em-bang-bang-explode obsession. The fact that it deals with the current focus on sex-rated themes may be off putting to many, but that the theme is solely that speaks loudly for a young writer/director to register a parody of our current shaky quasi-relationship fad.

There is not a lot of story so the more brief the synopsis the better: A New Jersey guy, Jon Martello (Joseph Gordon-Levitt) dedicated to his family, friends, and church, develops unrealistic expectations from watching porn and works to find happiness and intimacy with his potential true love. Though he has many sexual liaisons those episodes do not fully satisfy him the way onanism in front of a porn video does. He hits on a tacky, gum-chewing, perfect 10 Barbara Sugarman (Scarlett Johansson) but that continued dance has its problems. Finally he meets a very strange older woman Esther (Julianne Moore) who puts a bit of meaning into sexual expression and Jon's life changes - maybe.

Gordon-Levitt manages to pull together a fine cast (Tony Danza and Glenne Headly as his parents, Rob Brown and Jeremy Luke as his buddies, et al) and keeps the flavor of the accents and the characters very New Jersey. His writing for Jon's weekly confessions in church is hilarious and in general the dialogue is snappy. Gordon-Levitt spent as much time at the gym as he did creating this film and his very buff body is a showpiece!

5.0 out of 5 stars Joseph Gordon-Levitt writes, directs, & stars in 'Don Jon' September 29, 2013
Format:Blu-ray
If you believe the porn industry has no relevance in the modern world, you're sadly mistaken. Like it or loathe it, porn is big business, earning somewhere in the ballpark of $10-15 billion per year. Much like Hollywood, the adult film industry has stars of its own, a few of which have managed to become household names, most notably of which include Linda Lovelace, Jenna Jameson, and Ron Jeremy. It should come as no surprise that pornography has been around since man began using the printing press, and speaking of men, they are by far and away (statistically) the greatest abusers of the material. As it pertains to relationships, and depending who you ask, porn will either ruin a relationship or stimulate a relationship. All of this and more, including the impact porn has on the male species and how it comes into play during relationships happens to be the basis for the new comedy, Don Jon.

Joseph Gordon-Levitt makes his feature length directorial debut, also writing and starring in the comedy, Don Jon. Gordon-Levitt stars as Jon, but his friends call him "The Don" because of his outstanding success with the ladies. Jon enjoys several aspects of life, including his place, ride, boys, church - and porn. In fact, his biggest addiction is online porn. One night at the club, Jon meets a beautiful girl, Barbara (Scarlett Johansson), but this girl isn't like the rest of girls he meets. He actually has to work to get her into bed, but that's perfectly fine with him. He's so attracted to this girl that he's willing to do the things she wants him to do to in order to make her happy - including going back to school. To complicate matters, Barbara walks in on him watching porn, and adamantly demands that he promise to stop.
