Jon Martello Jr. (Joseph Gordon-Levitt) is a modern day Don Juan, with a short list of things he cares about: "my body, my pad, my ride, my family, my church, my boys, my girls, my porn".
Though he has a very active sex life, he is more sexually satisfied by viewing pornography and masturbating, which enables him to lose himself.


Don Jon is Joseph Gordon-Levitt's incredible debut as director. As previously said, many of nowadays American comedy films are fuelled by sex, but Don Jon is different.This film goes from porn and having sex, to knowing the difference between just having sex and making love and most important: the ending is not banal. 
The cast is good: Joseph Gordon-Levitt is brilliant as the "serial masturbator", Scarlett Johansson and Julianne Moore do both a good job as Barbara and Esther.


Jon Martello Jr.: I don't watch too many movies. I used to watch them a lot when I was a little kid before I could get my hand on any porn. Cause back then, if I wanted to see a really hot girl my best bet was to watch a movie. But now, I don't really see the point. I don't know, I guess I'm missing something. Cause most people eat that shit up. The pretty woman. The pretty man. Love at first sight. The first kiss. The break-up. The make-up. The expensive wedding and they drive off into the sunset. Everybody knows this is fake but they watch it like it's real fucking life.
