Joseph Gordon-Levitt Is a Douchey Porn-Lover in 'Don Jon' Trailer

Though 2009's (500) Days of Summer earned largely positive reviews for its quirky, offbeat take on romantic-comedy, some felt they'd rather see Joseph Gordon-Levitt play it a little less twee--you know, maybe fall in love as a Jersey Shore cliché addicted to workouts and pornography. Among those critics: Joseph Gordon-Levitt himself, apparently. So, for his feature writing and directing debut, he's corrected that problem with Don Jon. In the film, he stars as a dude who, as he describes himself, cares only about such numerous essentials as his body, his pad, his ride, his family, his church, his boys, his girls, and his porn. Proving that one can indeed have too many passions, his last two professed loved come into contention when he falls for fellow Jersey cliché Scarlett Johansson, an old-fashioned girl with a shrill argument against the X-rated arts.

Julianne Moore also appears to provide sage wisdom on non-pornographic love, while Tony Danza unexpectedly shows up as Jon's father and an earthly reminder of Angels in the Outfield. Here's the trailer:
