Don Jon, the first feature from Joseph Gordon-Levitt, is not like most films, but that helps make the actor's debut behind the camera all the more charming.
Gordon-Levitt directed, wrote and stars as a Jersey lothario, a regular, old-school, how-YOU-doin' guy who happens to be a hardcore porn addict.
Yes, he's a man dedicated to family, friends, and church, yet develops unrealistic expectations from porn and works to find intimacy with a true love interest.
Can he and Barbara (Scarlett Johansson) live happily ever after? And does this romantic comedy (of sorts) flourish despite of (or because of) its unusual premise?
Let's see what the Don Jon reviews are saying ...
"While addiction may make Jon sound like a bummer, as played with great swagger and subterranean wit by the movie’s writer and director, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, this improbable charmer conveys convincingly triumphant braggadocio." - The New York Times
