Don Jon Movie Review
Who knew pornography and loneliness can be funny?!? I give this movie a B+ for a great cast, story and it's wry humor
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.
Don Jon is a 2013 American comedy film written, directed by, and starring Joseph Gordon-Levitt. Produced by Ram Bergman and Nicolas Chartier, it also features Scarlett Johansson, Julianne Moore, and Tony Danza.
