Let's Rush To Judgment: 'Don Jon'

Tony Danza and Joseph Gordon-Levitt in <em>Don Jon</em>.

I admire Joseph Gordon-Levitt a lot, both because of his mix of performances in both big movies and little movies and because he made such a good transition from kid actor to adult actor with substantially less awkwardness than most.

Don Jon is his first feature, both as a writer and as a director, and while he seems to have disappeared into the role, it's hard for me to see myself being interested in the story as they're presenting it here. (Tony Danza, though!)

What do you think?
