Critic Reviews of "Don Jon"Time OutNovember 12, 2013
As a director, Gordon-Levitt demonstrates considerable technical flair through stylistic flourishes and coaxes great performances out of his co-stars.ChristyLemire.comOctober 03, 2013
Joseph Gordon-Levitt turns the gym-tan-laundry routine into an art form with Don Jon, his vibrant and viciously profane directorial debut.Richard Roeper.comSeptember 27, 2013
Offbeat, frank and often surprising gem.Christian Science MonitorSeptember 27, 2013
The movie becomes increasingly soft-edged and sappy.Orange County RegisterSeptember 27, 2013
Joseph Gordon-Levitt's debut as a writer-director-actor resembles a porn addict's Groundhog Day, and not in a good way.TIME MagazineSeptember 27, 2013
At least 80% of it is snappy, droll fluff, while the other 20% is what you get when you persuade Julianne Moore to be in your movie: in a word, better.FlavorwireJune 21, 2016
He's got a good ear for guy-talk dialogue, and a welcome sense of candor-he's putting some stuff out there about guys and porn. As a director, he's got a keen visual wit; the film has a fast, popping montage style that recalls early Aronofsky.The L MagazineJune 07, 2016
In terms of disposable, enjoyable entertainment, you could do much worse than this.Bangkok PostMay 10, 2016

The only trouble with Don Jon is the film's comfort level with the kind of material that holds its hero enslaved.CinemixtapeApril 09, 2016
There's just enough charm and poignancy here to make it worth a watch. Not a bad start for any first-time filmmaker.Philadelphia WeeklyApril 28, 2015
A barn-door broad burlesque of Joisey stereotypes and holy-cannoli accents. It's Saturday Night Fever drawn in crayon.
