Joseph Gordon-Levitt plays Don Jon, a dull, narcissistic sex addict, who spends his time pumping iron at the gym, pumping himself whilst viewing blue movies on pornhub.com, or seducing women he meets at night-clubs into one night stands. He kids himself it is a great existence but he is dying inside. One night out with his friends, he meets Barbara Sugarman (played by Scarlett Johansson), who he rates as a perfect ten (about the only believable thing in the film), and decides he must have her. The movie tries to portray Sugarman as a prim and proper princess, but she is dry humping Don Jon on a second date, and into his bed within a week. She discovers that he likes porn and decides that is a good enough reason to dump him. She proves herself to be even more of a dull narcissist than Don Jon. Don has been a failure at high school and decides to go to evening classes to play catch up academically, where he meets Julianne Moore's character. Moore plays an older and worldly wise woman who has no hang ups about porn, and is soon in a relationship with Don, showing him that the power of love can cure porn addiction. Yeah right. This, then, is the fundamental premise of the film. You can be a self-obsessed male slag, who loves porn, and won't give up porn even if you're screwing the sexiest girl in the world. However, get emotionally involved with a relative Plain Jane, and hey presto, the porn addiction is cured. It is simply devoid of believability, which is compounded by a needless back story about Don Jon's weekly trip to a Catholic Church to confess all his (yawn again) sins. Gordon-Levitt is a likeable actor but he doesn't make the grade as a bad boy, the role needed somebody more believable as a ruthless stud, somebody like Matt Damon.Read more ›

Don Jon (Joseph Gordon-Levitt) is a bar tender who works out. He beds lots of pretty girls and loves his porn...a lot. He meets Barbara Sugarman (Scarlett Johansson) who is a ten (a dime) and he must have her. She makes him court her first, going to chick flicks. Barbara objects to porn, so Don must hide his addiction. Don also meets and older woman (Julianne Moore) who understands his porn addiction and is not judgmental.

The plot doesn't have any real surprises or twists. My question about the film is what was the message? Relationships are important? Old fashion porn is healthy because it has relationships where modern porn does not? A guy will give up his porn on his own if he really into the relationship? i.e if your man watches porn, you're an inadequate woman or he is messed up. Or a deep Julianne Moore trumps a shallow Scarlett Johansson with a Jersey accent?

The film follows a standard formula, except it includes porn. I never really cared for the characters. The acting was fine, but the film didn't grab me. Perhaps it was because there were simply too many scenes of Don throwing tissues into a waste basket.

Parental Guide: Excessive f-bombs. sex, nudity.

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

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.

I really do not know what t1his movie is trying to be or trying to say. NOTsexy, or romantic, or funny or with any message. Just pointless, and one of those movies that finishes abruptly leaving you saying "oh, that's it then"

This is a good film (well made) about sexual addiction - honest, frank, direct. It demonstrates the extent of the problem of sexual addiction for men, but does a good job of including the struggles that are also real for some women.

It's surely just coincidence, but the recent release of "Don Jon" made two weekends in a row here in the US that Hollywood released a movie dealing with sex addition. The week before this came out, there was "Thanks for Sharing" (starring Mark Ruffalo and Gwyneth Paltrow). Now this.

"Don Jon" (2013 release; 90 min.) brings the story of Jon (played by Joseph Gordon-Levitt), a Jersey boy who loves his body, his pad, his family, his church, his boys, his women and... his porn. In the beginning of the movie Jon and his boys are hanging out at a club, and Jon notices and gets to know Barbara (played by Scarlett Johansson), "the prettiest thing I've ever seen" comments Jon. They hit if off. Things almost get derailed when Barbara spots Jon watching porn, but he gets away with it because "it was just a joke". At Barbara's insistance, Jon then starts going to night school (so that he can move up in society). There he gets to know Esther (played by Julianna Moore). To tell you more of the plot would surely ruin your viewing experience, you'll just have to see for yourself how it all plays out.

Coupld of comments: first and foremost, this is the Joseph Gordon-Levitt show all the way. He stars (in fact he is in every single scene of the movie), and he also is the writer and director of the movie (his directing debut). Second, while the first half of the movie certainly is fun and loose (with tongue firmly planted in cheek), the dark and serious undertones are more and more accentuated as the movie progresses. Don Jon (Jon's nickname) has a serious addiction problem (the original title of the movie was "Don Jon's Addiction"), and he knows it. At one point Barbara hisses to him "I thought you were different, but you aren't", and Jon knows he needs to face up to his addiction.
