Story


Jon Martello (Joseph Gordon-Levitt) is a strong, handsome, good old fashioned guy. His buddies call him Don Jon due to his ability to "pull" a different woman every weekend, but even the finest fling doesn't compare to the bliss he finds alone in front of the computer watching pornography. Barbara Sugarman (Scarlett Johansson) is a bright, beautiful, good old fashioned girl. Raised on romantic Hollywood movies, she's determined to find her Prince Charming and ride off into the sunset. Wrestling with good old fashioned expectations of the opposite sex, Jon and Barbara struggle against a media culture full of false fantasies to try and find true intimacy in this unexpected comedy written and directed by Joseph Gordon-Levitt.

REVIEWS BY CRITICS

“..arguably the most fascinating aspect of Don Jon is the way it equates porn, and how it can warp the frequent viewer into developing fetishistic and shallow conceptions about women and sex, with other forms of entertainment..”
by James Berardinelli [ReelViews]
“..he can act, and there's a possibility he can also direct, but there's no evidence in Don Jon that he can do both at the same time..”
by Rex Reed [New York Observer]
“.."Don Jon" is hardly as slick as its main character fancies himself, and that's OK. After all, as Gordon-Levitt's movie takes great pains to illustrate, what we constitute as perfection often proves to be a deceptive illusion..”
by Randy Myers [San Jose Mercury News]
