Don Jon – Review


Jon (Joseph Gordon-Levitt) is a simple guy. As he says, “There’s only a few things I really care about in life. My body. My pad. My ride. My family. My church. My boys. My girls. My porn.” BTW; This review is a little NSFW. The subject is hard to even touch without it being NSFW.

Jon has no problem with women. In fact, he’s basically got a streak going. Every time he goes to the club, he ends up bringing a girl home and sleeping with them. He loves the sex, but he feels he doesn’t get rush that he does when he watches porn. In fact, after he’s just been with a girl, he even goes right back to his porn.


Then one day at the club he meets Barbara (Scarlett Johansson). He immediately sees her as a “dime” and tries to do his same routine to bring her home with him. Unfortunately, she’s not as easy as a regular club girl. She won’t go home with him. He gets pissed, and ends up bringing another girl home.


He can’t stop thinking about Barbara, so he does a little research with some friends, and he actually asks her out on a date. They start dating, but she doesn’t “give it up” that easily. She starts getting him to take night classes, and other little things about him. They become girlfriend and boyfriend. And everything is going great…. Until she catches him watching porn. She wants nothing to do with him after that. She’s disgusted by it. Will he quit watching porn? Or will he stop pursuing her?


This movie is very racy. There’s a lot of nudity and clips from porn movies. There’s several funny things about this movie, they way they handle porn, Jon’s father played by Tony Danza, etc. But, not all of it is great. I was hoping for more, and it didn’t exactly do it for me. It’s a decent movie, but, nothing you have to see. 3 out of 5.
