A New Jersey guy dedicated to his family, friends, and church, develops unrealistic expectations from watching porn and works to find happiness and intimacy with his potential true love.
Director: Joseph Gordon-Levitt
Joseph Gordon-Levitt [JGL] is now a writer and a director, and he has a lot to say. I find a lot of similarities in tone and intentions to 500 Days of Summer, which also starred JGL. An intriguing look at relationships and sex in the modern world that has a lot that guys can relate to [not sure about the women], but also a lot of lessons to be learned.
A simply made film that is cute in it’s repetitions, but nothing really jumps out and impresses me from a directorial stand-point, but for a first film, it’s interesting to see what the future will hold for such a smart guy.
3/4 – Although pepper with a solid amount of things you don’t want your kids to see or hear, Don Jon is a smart rom-com that people can take a lot away from.
