Decent Directing Debut by JGL

I was surprisingly disappointed when I left the theater, but it wasn't because Joseph Gordon-Levitt didn't do a good job directing; he had a pretty good debut! I was disappointed because it wasn't a very feel-good movie...it was pretty cynical about relationships in our current culture. It had important commentary on that topic, though, but made it in a cryptic, very daring way which didn't make for the funnest movie to watch. I think the irony was so thick at times that it could even completely escape some viewers...the point was to depict a typical American family with the best intentions but messed up ideals, and I hope that everyone saw that those ideals were messed up. There was also excessive porn clips, which I didn't think were all necessary. The acting was incredible, though. There were some very impressive performances by Scarlett Johansson, Julianne Moore, and Joseph Gordon-Levitt himself.

In my opinion, this is one of the if not the worst movie I have ever seen. I wanted to walk out when the movie was only half through. The entire movie was about a man that was addicted to watching porn and satisfying himself. No plot, not interesting nothing, cannot even believe anyone would spend money to product such a nothing movie. HORRIBLE!

Most realistic film based on casual sex and relationships...

I found this film to be candidly refreshing about the subject of casual sex as well as relationships today. It wasn't necessarily mild blowing entertainment, but I enjoyed it nonetheless. I also found both Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Scarlett Johansson extremely sexy!!! Not to mention that there's a cameo of two other hotties, Channing Tatum and Anne Hathaway!

About Porn? It was porn! It should not be rated R

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!
