Don Jon


Don Jon is a film about how young, good looking woman are unsatisfying cunts, which leads to "Don" Jon watching porn as a substitute for what those girls fail to offer him. I don't have much to say about this film, other than it was very competent. It was well written, directed, acted, shot and edited, but I really didn't care for the story. Don Jon was a likable guy, Scarlet Johannson played such a cunt, but the best character in the movie is Jon's sister. She was essentially silent Bob; she just durdled around on her phone until the end of the movie where she had some strong emotional input about Scarlett Johannson's character. I have the same feeling about this as I did with Jack the Giant Slayer. Don Jon is a very well made film, but it just wasn't for me. It didn't say anything that I didn't already know, but I was a bit unsatisfied with the ending. I thought it pulled some punches, for the sake of pandering, but that is just my opinion. I say either wait for the dollar theater, or just rent it, unless you really want to see how ripped Tony Danza is now
