Consensus: Don Jon proves to be an amiable directing debut for Joseph Gordon-Levitt, and a vivacious showcase for his co-star, Scarlett Johansson.

Time Out

As a director, Gordon-Levitt demonstrates considerable technical flair through stylistic flourishes and coaxes great performances out of his co-stars.

The movie becomes increasingly soft-edged and sappy.

As a simple and sweet coming-of-age story for the Jersey Shore generation, it's perfectly entertaining stuff.

Joseph Gordon-Levitt turns the gym-tan-laundry routine into an art form with Don Jon, his vibrant and viciously profane directorial debut.

Joseph Gordon-Levitt's debut as a writer-director-actor resembles a porn addict's Groundhog Day, and not in a good way.

Jason Bailey

He's got a good ear for guy-talk dialogue, and a welcome sense of candor-he's putting some stuff out there about guys and porn. As a director, he's got a keen visual wit; the film has a fast, popping montage style that recalls early Aronofsky.

At least 80% of it is snappy, droll fluff, while the other 20% is what you get when you persuade Julianne Moore to be in your movie: in a word, better.

There's a lot to love in this dramedy from Joseph Gordon-Levitt, who starred, directed, and wrote this film. It has some really great performances from… More

A daring move for first time director Gordon-Levitt. The rythm of salacious views on life, sex, women and marriage decrease with each passing minute, and so… More
