Rhett Pardon

HOLLYWOOD, Calif. – "Don Jon," a new comedy that tells the tale of an obsessed online adult surfer, opens at theaters nationwide this weekend.

In the R-rated comedy "Don Jon," Joseph Gordon-Levitt plays a New Jersey ladies’ man whose ability to maintain normal relationships with women is stunted by his obsession with online porn.

Gordon-Levitt, who wrote and directed "Don Jon," says he was interested in exploring how the media shapes our perceptions and expectations.

 “Pornography is a huge, huge part of our media culture,” he told Entertainment Weekly.  “Whether it’s rated X or approved by the FCC to sell Doritos, the message is the same.”
