Don Jon's Addiction

Joseph Gordon-Levitt's new movie, "Don Jon" (check out the trailer after the break)is a story about a guy caught up in some superficial and selfish lifestyle. His whole world revolves around his body, his pad, his ride, his family, his church, his boys, his girls, and his porn... until he meets a girl... a girl who loves unrealistic romantic comedies. I'm excited to see how JGL tells this coming-of-age story. It's one that needs to be told.

The movie is obviously meant to make us think. Do porn and rom-coms distort true love? Does watching either one change our expectations of what we truly desire from a relationship? If we could replicate what we experience on the screen, would it make us happy? Tell me what you think in the comments!

After spending well over an hour with them, I can tell you from my experience that it works.
