Jon Martello objectifies everything in his life: his apartment, his car, his family, his church, and, of course, women. His buddies even call him Don Jon because of his ability to pull "10s" every weekend without fail. Yet even the finest flings don't compare to the transcendent bliss he achieves alone in front of the computer watching pornography. Dissatisfied, he embarks on a journey to find a more gratifying sex life, but ends up learning larger lessons of life and love through relationships with two very different women.Written by
The Carl's, Jr./Hardee's commercial featured prominently in the film was a real ad that premiered during Super Bowl XLVII starring Danish model Nina Agdal. See more »
Near the beginning of the movie when Bobby pulls up Barbara's Facebook profile, it shows that they are close friends (there is a star next to the "Friends" button), when at this point Jon had barely obtained her name. See more »

Great directorial debut from JGL
I saw this at a pre-screening for SXSW and I was really impressed. Joseph Gordon-Levitt really holds his own as a writer/director, and it was nice to see him in a role I hadn't really considered him "right" for. Scarlett Johansen and Julianne Moore are both wonderful as well. Basically, you should see this if you get the chance. It's funny, charming, different, and tells a great story that ends up going in a direction I hadn't anticipated.
This movie basically tells the story of a young guido (Gordon-Levitt) who has a porn addiction and ends up in a relationship with Scarlett Johansen's character. One thing leads to another, blah blah blah.... you'll see when you see it. I don't want to give too much away.
Anyway, yeah! Really good movie, great directorial debut, and a well told story. I'd recommend this film.
