The romantic comedy marks the directorial debut of Joseph Gordon-Levitt, who also wrote and stars in the film. "Don Jon" first premiered at the Sundance Film Festival before its September 27, 2013, theatrical release.

In "Don Jon," the title character of Jon Martello (Joseph Gordon-Levitt) is secure with who he is and what he likes. He loves his family, his church, taking care of himself and his surroundings, women and pornography. He has no problem with the ladies, taking home babes every weekend but few of his experiences give him the satisfaction that he gets from his adult movies.

When Jon meets Barbara (Scarlett Johansson), everything changes. He falls hard for this girl, even watching the romantic comedy movies she loves (but he hates). After she catches him watching porn, he undergoes some soul searching to try to get over his porn addiction in search of a more gratifying sex life with her. Julianne Moore, Glenne Headly, Tony Danza and Rob Brown co-star in the film.

"Don Jon" joins the early fall 2013 movie season already full with hits like "Rush, "Prisoners,", "Enough Said," "The Family," "Riddick," "The World's End," "Getaway," "Drinking Buddies," "The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones," "Paranoia," "Kick-Ass 2," "We're the Millers, and "Elysium".
