tedious

I went in with pretty low expectations, and they were met. By the end I sort of cared about the main character, but not much. I was so bored of the caricatures, instead of characters, in this movie. Julianne Moore was great, her part of the movie was relatively interesting. Scarlett Johanssen was really good as a vapid nothing, but why do I care about a vapid nothing? Life is too short to waste at movies like this.

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.

crude and funny

funny, a few good points in between the crudeness of this comedy. definitely for a mature audience with all of the porn flashes and references throughout the film. but over all a good film. actors were good except for Scarlett- not the ideal part for her. she doesn't portray the jersey girl very well, it seemed too forced.

A small minded person might deem this film as being stereotypical, repetitive and shallow, but those of us with a deeper understanding of life will see a very creative and meaningful film. The unexpected developments make this movie outstanding and while you will be laughing throughout, the ending is ironic, poignant and will leave you with a warm heart. Joseph Gordon-Levitt's debut as a director and actor is a fine one!

First, I have to say that I read the description of the movie and didn't think it was for me but then I looked at the ratings and saw that others said 'Go' so I gave it a try. If you want to see a movie where the f-bomb is dropped about a thousand times and you want to see soft (borderline hard) porn, some guy who masturbates incessantly and throws his dirty kleenex in the trash can, this might be for you. I read one review that said it was a romantic comedy - wow, far from true in my opinion. I stayed for the movie (thought about walking out because it was so gross and uninteresting) thinking that the story might redeem the movie. But, it didn't. And please parents, don't allow your kids to see this sickening excuse for entertainment. If you love porn, you might enjoy it. Otherwise, skip it!
