Don Jon hits theaters today and it’s hard to tell how it will perform. Truth-be-told, the advertising hasn’t been very good (who chooses “Good Vibrations” by Marky Mark and the Funky Bunch to promote a movie in 2013?) but with eye candy for both male and female viewers, it could do well.
Written and directed by Joseph Gordon–Leavitt, the plot surrounds Jon Martello (Leavitt). Strong and good-looking, his friends jokingly refer to him as Don Jon due to his ability to score a new woman every weekend. The only problem is that, despite his conquests, Jon is most happiest spending time alone watching porn.
Of course, with a story like this, there has to be a charming woman who is looking for more than Don Jon is offering. Barbara Sugarman (Scarlett Johansson) is searching for her knight in shining armor. Together, Jon and Barbara try to buck societal expectations and develop a genuine relationship against all odds.
Oh, and in case you were wondering, this movie does have a lot of nudity. Check out this hot trailer:
