Joseph Gordon-Levitt already debuted his full-length writing and directing debut, Don Jon (formerly Don Jon’s Addiction), at the Sundance Film Festival earlier this year to solid reviews, but most of us simple folk hadn’t seen much of it until the first trailer was revealed yesterday. Starring JGL and Scarlett Johansson, Don Jon is about a New Jersey bro who seems to be pretty obsessed with porn and working out, so I’m a little confused as to whether this is a comedy or a documentary.
A New Jersey guy dedicated to his family, friends, and church, develops unrealistic expectations from watching porn and works to find happiness and intimacy with his potential true love.
ScarJo plays the true love, and she wears really tight dresses, so my $12 is already set aside for Don Jon, but they’re also joined by Julianne Moore, Tony Danza and, you guessed it… Channing Tatum. Only, things go awry for the two heavy-accented lovers, when ScarJo discovers her man jackin’ it to porn on his laptop.
Honestly, that may be the most ridiculously unrealistic thing that I’ve ever heard of. She’d have to be playing a nun with the body composition of a Barbie Doll for this to work.
Obviously, the bad news here is that C-Tates plays a movie star within the movie, so he’s not actually playing JGL’s best bro like I’d hope. C-Tates trying to pull off a New Jersey accent might be the greatest thing that I’d ever witness in my life.
