Jon Martello 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 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.
Comedy - This is a very raunchy comedy with some romantic elements aimed at
adult moviegoers. This is a big showcase for writer/director/star
Joseph Gordon-Levitt though the other stars such as Scarlett
Johansson, Julianne Moore, and Tony Danza all have choice moments.
Very constant sex, nudity, and language make this film not for kids.
PROFANITY: Well over 30 F-words; over 30 S-words; 3 GD's; many others. SEX/NUDITY: Lots of sex with related nudity. VIOLENCE: None. DRUGS/ALCOHOL: Alcohol and marijuana. ACTION: None. COMEDY: Constant banter and wisecracks and some physical gags, almost all sex-related.
OPINION OVERVIEW The following is the original "What's Worth
Watching" write-up for this movie.
Based on a theater exit polling of 12 moviegoers:
This movie certainly didn't draw much of an audience. We only collected 12 reviews from multiple showings.
There aren't really enough reviews to be accurate but these few reviews do show that about half the adults, both male and female, loved "Don Jon." Unfortunately, the remaining reviews mostly show this to be an average movie.
