Don Jon Movie Review


Don Jon is a 2013 American romantic comedy film which appears to be popular among individuals in their late teenage years and early 20’s.

The movie revolves around Jon Martello who is a young Italian American and modern day Don Juan living and working as a bartender in New Jersey, United States.

The things that he cares about are : “my body, my pad, my ride, my family, my church, my boys, my girls, my porn.” While he is good looking and easily able to attract women, he appears to not be having a satisfactory sex life and finds more comfort in masturbating.

While out with his two best friends, Bobby and Danny, Jon notices Babara Sugarman who is a young woman from a rich background. She rejects his offer of a one night stand. He eventually tracks her on Facebook. Barbara insists that they see each other for some time before proceeding any further. The two have sex eventually and meet the parents of each other, seeming mutually happy.

Jon is still not satisfied. He loves Barbara and finds her body amazing but is not satisfied. While Barbara sleeps, Jon watches pornography. She eventually catches him and is shocked. She threatens to leave him though he denies he watches pornography and instead claims that it was a joke sent to him by a friend.

The relationship resumes with Jon watching pornography outside his apartment. Barbara eventually finds Jon’s browser history and breaks up with him, citing proof that he was watching pornography. During this time, Jon meets Esther, a considerably older woman but one whom he feels an emotional bond with. The two have sex in a car. Esther warns Jon that his view of sex is influenced by his love of pornography which presents it as a one sided affair.

The two start dating.
