Looks great doesn't it. An argument about love and cheap sex with a obsessed self-centered prat. It just fails at pretty much everything it tries to do. Sure the acting is fine,i hated him,so i guess the actor did a good job. But the accents,especially Johansson's,just annoyed me. The love and romance vs cheap sex idea just didn't really go anywhere and it became all about his addiction to porn and not being convinced real sex will ever be as good,can someone teach him different? Big yawn. This just gets sillier and sillier and as much as i appreciate Julianne Moore,i just wasn't buying it. His obsession with porn and treating women like sex toys has you feeling he should have been named Dick. Some might lap this up,but i was left thinking i wish i had watched something else. I felt conned by a film that sounded sexy and cool, with a good point made. But too few laughs,horrible characters,little meaning,you're better off sleeping through it.

JGL I think had a secret fantasy about being a porn star. Why cos this movie is about as close as he could get to it without making one. SJ seemed to thrive in the role of the beautiful but controlling girlfriend.

JGL plays Don Jon the stereotypical hot headed, catholic Italian. He lives a very repetitive life. He watches porn, he hangs with his boys, he sleeps with a lot of women, goes to church with his family and to confess everything. Then repeats this over and over. His porn addiction is so strong that he actually prefer it to the real thing.

A very disappointing but not completely unwatchable. That is the only thing that took it to 2 stars instead of 1 for me.

There are 2 ways of viewing this film - either as a sharp funny critique of modern life bravely using porn as indicator of how insular it has become or just a tradition rom-com blatantly using one man's love of porn for shock value.
Its strengths are that it seems to be trying to say that the commercialisation and sexualization of society in general, has everyone dissatisfied with normality, expecting instant gratification and perfection. Everyone is one step removed from their immediate life - Jon's father watching the Big Game each week while they eat their one family meal together, his sister messaging friends instead of joining in the conversation or seeing them in person. Mainstream Hollywood romances are portrayed as emotional porn.
On the down side the portrayal of Italian-American Catholics seemed stereotyped. The accents, Scarlett Johannson's constant gum chewing and the men eating dinner in their vests was all laid on a bit thick. Also regular confession for a young man in this day & age because of his porn habit, seemed anachronistic.
I would say it's worth watching to decide for yourself, unless you are easily offended by the subject matter.

Loved this film on sky movies so I knew it was a dvd that belonged in my collection. It's so well told and the actors in this film really do a good job of portraying the different expectations that people want out of a relationship. Joseph was fantastic per usual! A must watch for any romance comedy fan!

A sex-ed film for single men in their twenties, and that's about it. It's not funny, the scenes where the hero goes to Confession are silly, and why Scarlett Johansson accepted a part in this production is baffling.
After half an hour, I almost gave up. It got marginally better after that.

This sounded funny in the write ups but it really didn't live up to much I like a film to hold my whole attention but found myself constantly checking the clock drifting off thinking about other stuff literally waiting for it to come to it's sorry end the lead role of Don Jon was appalling quite simply acting at it's worse the accent was horrendous and nothing in his mannerisms was believable if felt like he was doing a really bad impression of Mike The Situation Sorrentio the whole way through prober ly best he sticks to producing in future

I couldnt really put this film into a category. Its not funny enough to be a comedy. Doesnt fit a drama category either. It doesnt really knlw what it wants to be.
I like Joseph Gordon - Levitt, but the accent he puts on is just strange, his acting wasnt up to his usual high standards, and his direcrion was just ok.
