This is a brash movie with a subtle message, one definitely worth making. All the actors, in particular Scarlett Johansson, did a terrific job. Very impressed all around.

I really enjoyed this film by Joseph Gordon-Levitt. The subject, a macho guy who gets his high from watching porno and then jacking off, made me uncomfortable at first. But, the acting by the main players was great, the plot was well written AND there was a real message at the end to bring it all together. The acting was suberb, a great job by Levitt and Johannsen. I especially appreciated the roles of the mother and the older woman. Julianna Moore is so sexy. An adult film, not for the squeemish.

This movie is not for kids, but it's clean given the subject matter. The porn, sex and masturbation are shown mostly with humor. It's a good dive into sorting out what it means to scope out sex vs. find true love. All of the actors gave great performances in a light film that still manages to send a message.

Don Jon, brilliantly written, directed and acted out by Joseph Gordon-Levitt shows the development of a Jersey boy from a superficial porn-watching, one-night standing womanizer to a caring and conscious lover. It takes an older woman to show him the true means and meaning of love, but he finally gets "it" in the end.

Saw it once by myself on my day-off, then took my husband of 25 years. I liked it much more than he did. He thought it got boring towards the end, then after it ended, he saw the point of the Movie.
I think it was VERY true to life. I bet most of the male population has or does, really behave and view women this way. Especially true for women who allow themselves to be treated this way.
