2 of 4

“..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]
Review rate : B+

“..Gordon-Levitt's intuitive performance makes even this part of the film work..”
by Owen Gleiberman [Entertainment Weekly]
3 of 4

“..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]
3 of 4

“.."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]
