Save your $$ and stay home and ********** on line ..... that is 50% of this film!! No awards in the wings here for sure!!! As close to porn as you can get! Stay home is the best advice I can offer for this film.
I attend movies at least 3x a month and some are great and some are good, but this was downright awful.

This movie was hilarious. I don't think I went more than 30 seconds without cracking up. Reveals a lot of male secrets though! Not recommended for date night!

I went into this film with very high expectations and I was given even more! A spectacular film Especially seeing as it is his first Directed and Written film. Splendidly funny and Candid. Wonderful layers of meaning through out the film make it even more impressive for being a virgin film maker. The themes were quite clear but this didn't detract from the film nor feel heavy handed in a negative way.
I feared this would turn out to be a "Rom Com" like in the trailers Don Jon even says he doesn't like. Thank goodness this isn't the case. Perfect characters all around and plenty of heart. I'm not ashamed to say Don Jon made me cry, sorrow and joy. My Girlfriend and I were laughing pretty much all through out with the very real humor and situations this film had. One of the funniest movies of the year.
Of my top ten of the year I feel this might be 4th or 5th which is great for a premier director's film. I would score it a 9 out of 10. A Must See Film!

This is a "coming-of-age" (bad pun) movie for 35-year olds. It's a good, sweet movie though, despite all the porn scenes. This is a movie about a guy who learns to be a real human being by giving up his addiction to activities that require solitude and secrecy. Scarlett Johanssen and Julianne Moore were fantastic in this, as were all the family members of Joseph Gordon-Levitt. Gordon-Levitt was very convincing as the lead character. He made a sea-change in personality throughout the movie, but it was believable. That takes some real acting chops and I'm impressed. Go see this movie if the porn clips won't bother you too much.

I knew what the movie was about before going to see it. However, I thought, hoped rather, that more time would be devoted to focusing on the negative ramifications of the addiction. Not the case; It took nearly the entire "porn watching" movie for this to happen. It was probably the final scene before he gave it up. It really didn't send a loud message to the male population as I had hoped. This is an eppidemic in America (that I thought the movie would touch on as a way to overcome it). Something has to change or our young teens won't stand a chance a healthy monogomous reletionship. Don Jon was very misleading and disappointing! DO NOT let your teen see this X rated movie!
