Did you watch the tv show, "3rd Rock From The Sun"?   If so, have you ever wondered what happened to that actor who played the "son"?   His name is Joseph Gordon-Levitt and just directed and starred in the soon to be releases movie, "Don Jon". 

Jon Martello (Levitt) portrays a modern day Don Juan who manages to get women classified as "10s".  That's fine accept for his watching porn on the internet.  His family consists of: his dad, Jon Martello, Sr. (Tony Danza), who finds pride in his son's "nailing"; his mom Angela (Glenne Headly) who is hoping for grandchildren; and his sister, Monica (Brie Larson) who is always seen communicating with her iphone or whatever gadget it is. 

Don meets Barbara Sugerman (Scarlett Johansson) and forms a relationship.  She finds out about his watching porn and asks him to promise that the won't do that, since she is "the real thing".  But, he's addicted.

As a "good Catholic" he goes to church with his family each week with many scenes in the confessional.  It's not unusual for the next scene to take place at the gym with is pumping iron while reciting some "Hail Marys" and "Our fathers".  

He takes a class at a college and meets Esther (Julianne Moore), who is standing outside of the school door crying.  She is much older than him and into smoking pot.  They become friends.

What we have here is a comedy with some very funny situations and lines.  Funny, but not hilarious.  The  porn is shown as he views it on his computer.  Let's call it partial nudity.  Some breasts, no nipples. Certainly nothing to see regarding men.

See this one for a good laugh.
