Often light on its feet, bolstered by the reliable charms and writing chops of its leading man.
For his first time behind the camera, Gordon-Levitt is already showing signs of great promise. It s a stereotype that actors-turned-filmmakers focus solely on performances, and while Don Jon is certainly a well-acted movie, it s also a good-looking one.
The movie is a broad ethnic comedy, but there s nothing broad about the wicked-smart way it s executed. Even long-played-out stereotypes take on new life.
The movie takes a roundhouse punch at male shallowness, but Jon, in and out of his clothes, is not an interesting enough man to be emblematic of anything.
Crude, repetitive and rigorously single-minded, the popular actor s writing and directing debut lays it all on a bit thick, as the few points the film has to make are underscored time and time again.
