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.

This movie was surprisingly good, and funny, but there are A LOT of nudity scenes in porno's that caught me off guard at first, but you realize how they are meant to really get you to understand the main character....But we forewarned, if you don't want to watch a porno with someone, than don't bring them to this movie with you....good for a movie out with your best buds, or your lover....

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!

Stretches a Simple Premise

This movie stretches its simple premise into a 90 minute story that should have been told in 20. If Joseph Gordon-Levitt hadn't written and directed this, it would have never gotten made. Don't be suckered into buying a ticket for this low-budget, low-entertainment value movie.
