Don Jon: Please fire the title writer

Don Jon could be a good movie.

The POSTER certainly wants you to think so.

I mean, I don’t want to see it. But it could be a good movie. Even if it is about Joseph Gordon-Levitt suffering from a porn addiction trying to see Scarlett Johansson as an actual person, because when you’re trying to see women as real people and not objects, Scarlett Johansson is the logical place to start.

Scarlett Johansson: A person who is totally never objectified to satisfy our personal lusts.

So … probably not a good movie (but certainly better than Baggage Claim, which I recently learned exists, and is about a woman who wants to meet Mr. Right before her younger sister gets married and it involves lots of frequent flyer miles, because of course it does)…

Oh God, don't touch her! Her spinsterhood might get all over you!

Oh God, don’t touch her, gentlemen! Her spinsterhood might get all over you!

… but WHAT THE HELL WITH THE ATROCIOUS TITLE?

Also this expression. WHAT WITH THIS EXPRESSION, Joseph Gordon-Levitt?

    I don’t know a thing about Don Jon, but I assumed it was a play on Don Juan or something. And yeah, Baggage Claim, wtf?

      Yeah, I figured it was a play on Don Juan, which is why it sucks.
      And Baggage Claim, because there aren’t enough movies about women trying to find the perfect man before it’s too late, I guess?
