Don Jon's Addiction is much like its eponymous character: not much depth but quick, confident, amusing, and oddly endearing.  The entire film quickly boils down to its core concept in the span of its frenetic intro: the eponymous character is afraid of intimacy.  So who's going to tear down that emotional wall?  How will he learn his lesson?  How can a lothario clearly based on "The Situation" from Jersey Shore ever learn to love?  Director, writer, and star Joseph Gordon-Levitt knows his character inside and out, backwards and forwards, and finds the sweet, vulnerable heart of a guy who keeps Kleenex in business. Jon (Gordon-Levitt) has settled into a comfortable routine.  He ritualizes his porn viewing, heads to the club, picks up a hot chick after making sure she's "at least an 8", takes her back to his place where he finds the sex disappointing because it's not as good as porn, »
