Storyline

Well-respected psychiatrist Dr. Jack Mickler is only 10 days away from his retirement. A week before he is due to leave, he encounters a young man who attempts suicide--would be a pretty straightforward case except the young man claims to be Don Juan, the fabled Spanish nobleman and world renowned seducer/lover of woman. Despite original hostility from his co-workers, Jack manages to persuade his associates to put the youth in his care for 10 days after which the youth will undergo an evaluation to be either released from psychiatric care or sent to a mental institution. However, as the 10 days progresses, Dr. Mickler and the other staff become gradually drawn into to the young man's exotic world of love, passion and pleasure as he recounts his story to them. Whilst doing so the man's philosophies and zeal for life and love begins to revive Dr. Mickler's somewhat passionless relationship with his wife, Marilyn as well as challenging his own views and ethics to the point where both he ...

Trivia

Mike Judge heard a rumor that Marlon Brando and Johnny Depp were both fans of his animated series Beavis and Butt-Head (1993), and at one point, when cameras were not rolling, Brando and Depp were sitting on a couch doing impressions of the animated duo. It is believed that Brando did Butt-Head and Depp did Beavis. At one point, Johnny Depp personally asked Mike Judge if he could play Beavis, if a live-action movie were made. See more »

Don Juan: [voice-over] This would have been a very good time for me to lie. But truth is a terrible habit.

A girlfriend put it best: "Johnny Depp is sex on a stick in this movie, you have to see it!"
15 August 2003 | by beachbabyusaSee all my reviews

"Don Juan De Marco" is really the ideal romantic comedy. It's so adorable! The best part is definitely the star, Johnny Depp, which the name should speak for itself but as long as I'm writing... sexy, sensual, mysterious, and amazingly charasmatic. His accent is wonderful and his mannerisms draw you in. Not to mention his eyes...

Then there are the monologues he goes into that make all of us women wish that there was a "Don Juan De Marco: How to Make Love to a Woman 101" course for all boyfriends/husbands/one night stands to take. His descriptions of sex that many men would turn into vulgar vocabulary lessons nobody ever wanted to hear instead are romantic and sweet. Really, we know that we can't expect all guys to live up to a written character that was actually designed to be the greatest lover the world has ever seen... but who's concerned with reality when they're watching Johnny?

How this got by with a PG-13 rating, I do NOT know, but who's complaining! I definitely have a feeling this movie was geared towards female audiences, and for once the sex scenes highlight the guy! That's where the "sex on a stick" part comes in. Yummy!

I love movies that answer everything, and the end to this movie is perfect. It's too good to be true, but that's ok. It's unbelievable, but that's alright. If you're cynical, or if you're, well, a straight male... then this movie probably isn't the best for you. If you're a Johnny Depp fan, or, well, a straight female... then this is definitely worth checking out. But bottom line, its romantic, entertaining, sexy as HELL, and just plain fun.
