A movie I have wanted to see for some time and it was more than worthed. I loved it and I loved the characters. I picked the three most important ones and I will tell you a little bit about them.
Played by: Joseph Gordon-Levitt
Jon is a modern day Don Juan, with a short list of things he cares about: his body, his pad, his ride, his family, his church, his boys, his girls and his porn. He thinks porn is more satisfying then sex with an actual woman and doesn’t get how women can like romantic movies.
Played by: Scarlett Johansson
Barbara catches Jon’s attention, but when he finally has her, Barbara insists on a traditional long-term courtship, which proceeds for over a month without sex. When she catches Jon watching porn she is disgusted, but he promises her never to watch it again. Off course Jon doesn’t keep that promise.
