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!)
