Loved it!

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!

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.

The buzz word for Don Jon is in the title of the review. Any guy ages 18-25 ish can completely relate to this movie, especially those of us privileged enough to have that crazy ex. The movie centers around the theme of meaningless sex, which is immensely prevalent in society. I loved the relations it made to real life. Joseph Gordon-Levitt did a great job as a writer, taking witty stabs at family life, religion, relationships and routine living. The message that "Don Jon" discovers is simple and universal: Don't get trapped by routine, live different, make life mean something. The film was spot-on in its details relating to younger men. It managed to focus on romance without being mushy or uncomfortable, which results in a rare, guy-friendly romantic movie. Overall, it was great, funny, witty and, most important, felt very real.

Basically quite stupid. I don't think there was more than 1 theme and although there was some depth to that, the "plot" never went anywhere and I don't think there was much depth to the characters, despite their being good actors/actresses. The F word actually lost its impact as it was excessive and boring.
