    A certain other site is probably fed up with me bleating about JGL so I thought I’d come over here and do it. Can’t stand this guy, he just irritates me. Done.
    Ps Nice review.

      I both understand the impulse to be annoyed by him and am utterly charmed by him at the same time. In any case, put it aside and see this movie. It’s good.

    Does this break the rules of your top 10 list or is it eligible?

    I agree that some of “Don Jon” is on the cusp of parody, but I think JGL’s script is a bit of a failure in its denouement. It was never clear to me in the film that JGL was truly struggling with weaning himself off the porn and as much as I loved where it ended up, I don’t think that ending was completely earned — even with the emotional uncertainty already baked into its sentiment.

    Even so, this is a great piece of writing, David. Reminds me that I should probably visit the site more often.
