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

The movie becomes increasingly soft-edged and sappy.

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

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.

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
