Don Jon - Movie Review17:17
Don Jon is a movie about Jon, a Jersey guy who loves his family, his apartment, his church, and his porn. With his addiction to porn, he finds real girls/sex unsatisfying and begins his search to find a better sex life and love life.
First off, I may be a little biased as I find Joseph Gordon-Levitt the hottest thing since the centre of the earth. This movie just shows off that fact but also proves that he's very good behind a camera aswell as in front. His writing is fresh, funny and witty. His directing is great and his screen presence makes women fall at their knees for him. Scarlett Johansson is also very good, a little crazy here and there however her love for romantic comedies and finding porn disgusting makes the characters interesting.
Overall, this is a movie about addiction. Although he doesn't recognise it's a real addiction, Jon must learn that porn is completely different to real sex. If you like comedies, this movie is for you. It's a very refreshing movie with a good amount of comedy plus actual serious points about the porn industry and addiction mixed in. I would say it's released at the perfect time, where porn is huge however the rules and regulations on it are in the current news. If you wanted a more serious movie about the addiction of sex/porn then I would recommend Shame. However if you love JGL or the idea of porn causing unrealistic views towards sex, then this movie is perfect for you.
