Don Jon

Katherine suggested Don Jon, the new film written, directed, and starring Joseph Gordon-Levitt.  The movie is at 7:50 at showcase, so let's meet in the lobby at 7:30.  If you need to reach me, my cell phone number is[masked]-0455.

Joseph Gordon-Levitt plays Jon, a charming ladies man looking for a real relationship.  Scarlett Johansson wants to meet her Prince Charming.  Unfortunately, his addiction to internet porn and her obsession with romantic movies cloud their expectations of what a relationship should be.  Also starring Julianne Moore and Tony Danza.

    LOL me too, David. I have a good imagination - I get it already ! Leave a little to "us"... :) I do like that there was finally some 'character development' at the end. A happy story and maybe he 'got it' but chances - not... :P

      I actually like the way the left it open at the end. You don't know really where he ends up.

    Good movie, but it really didn't need to show all those clips of pornography. After a while, I get the idea.

    Realistic and well-acted portayal of superficial and controlling relationships; the additional themes of sex addiction and personal tragedy added further depth to the story and made it one of the best films I've seen of this genre. I also liked the sister on the phone story-anchor who provided only a single verbal (yet poignant) observation at the end.

    I saw this movie last weekend with a girlfriend - be prepared for extreme X rated content - tons of porn shown - otherwise good comedy.

      I heard an interview with Joseph Gordon Levitt. He talked about the porn. It's still rated r. You have to crop the porn clips so it can still be rated r. Men watch porn. Hell, women do too. I like realism in my movies. Can't wait to see this one!

      I didn't interpret Linda's comment as good or bad. It was just a warning so that people know what they're getting into. I think it's useful to let people know what's in a movie in case they're easily offended.

    My bad, my dog's having surgery that day and I wasn't thinking. I hope the new time works for people.
