Perfect cast and a good story
Entertaining from beginning to end, it maintains the spirit of the franchise while establishing it's own seal with a fun cast
This story has more twists and turns than a second-rate soap opera.
It's easily one of the freshest, sharpest and most enjoyable films of this year.
To start off, the first time I saw this movie I was sixteen years old, so my opinion back then was that this movie was absolutely disgusting.This year I watched it again, only this time I am eighteen. And what I retained from it was a change, first Jon was like the name says a Don Jon but then when he meets this woman who show's him that he has to lose himself in others he completely changes! So what I think is that this movie illustrates very well our nowadays society, a huge part of men and women only think about sex, their own pleasure, instead of connecting and really feeling/living the moment as a unique experience not as thing that you do with however goes your way every Friday night. Suming up, this a movie worth watching, not one of my favorites but not bad either! It shows how most of the people act but only a few have the ability to realize what Jon did.
Joseph Gordon-Levitt excels with his directorial debut and shows that he is equally as strong behind the cameras as he is in front of the cameras. Don Jon is a movie about a New jersey bartender called Jon Martello (Joseph Gordon-Leviit) who portrays a universal image for men as porn lovers. Also starring alongside Joseph Gordon-Levitt is Scarlett Johansson and Julianne Moore who give performances just as strong as the main actor. This movie stuck out to me in one major way, the power to portray how both men and women's perceptions of relationships are deceived by porn and romance movies. Men who watch porn expect women to be like the female porn stars they engage so much time into. In this respect, men automatically decide that all females in this world act like porn stars, which is not the case. When their hopes and dreams of a 'perfect' woman turn out to be false they are automatically let down and don't think that woman is for them. The same can be said for women, who expect a relationship with a man to be that from typical romance movies, romantic, perfect and unbreakable. When these standards are not met by the man and woman in a relationship, it breaks down due to the deception from these romance movies and pornography. Overall Don Jon gives a realistic perspective on modern day relationships, with strong acting, directing and narrative on top. Don't be drawn away from this movie because it is cast under romance as it's nothing like the genre it claims to be. Any moviegoer should see this movie, especially with your other partner as it may say a lot about your relationship and provide ways in which you can improve upon it.
I have mixed feelings about a movie. The film actually reflects our real life: the guy who addicted to porn because it is easy, accessible and acceptable, the girl, who is shallow, egoistic and think only about herself only. Jon's sister represents most of the people who cannot abandon their phones for five minutes. Jon's parent's demonstrates life of couple after thirty years of marriage: TV and arguments. Also, the movie touches religion, some people think that if they go to church, donate money and confess, all their sins will disappear. I think, it is not a comedy, it is a tragedy movie. It just shows how people are degrading. It made me really upset. At the end they show that there is hope. But it is like a thin thread that can pull main character from his problems.
Starts very well, very impressive for first-time feature writer/director Joseph Gordon-Levitt. Then in the middle it loses a lot of its potential (especially when Scarlett Johansson's character is revealed to be a total bitch, which makes absolutely no sense in Joseph's character wanting to keep her and acting like her dog, apologizing endlessly - even after they already split; It's like he totally lost his balls; I couldn't stand watching her character! Also, he ends up with a woman 20 years older than him, ahm... isn't that a LITTLE weird?). I wanted to like the film, but found myself doing some stuff while watching it.Also, I didn't understand whether Johansson's character was supposed to be Italian with this accent (first I thought she was supposed to be Jewish, but then you see her with a cross in one scene). It's funny that both lead actors, who are Jewish, are playing these very-Christian roles.I liked Tony Danza. Haven't seen him acting in years and he was hilarious in most of the scenes (the best one was when he meets his son's girlfriend for the first time - actually made me LOL). The whole interaction between him and his son (and their accent) is great.
