The Tao of Steve
Overweight, overeducated ladies man Dex (Donal Logue) learns that his rules of cool (aka The Tao of Steve -- McQueen) get him everywhere with the women he doesn't want and nowhere with Syd (Greer Goodman), the woman he covets. Dex tries to stick to his rules when pursuing Syd, but stumbles at every turn. Could there be something wrong with his philosophy? Sly and smart, The Tao of Steve burrows under the skin of modern romance, with warm results.

The Tao of SteveClose
Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that this movie has drug use and a lot of drinking and smoking. Dex has an affair with a married woman, the wife of a good friend. Although the resolution of the movie has Dex becoming more mature, the movie makes immaturity (to the point of hedonism) seem very appealing. Dex cites St. Augustine's famous, "Lord make me chaste -- but not yet." Although it is clear that Dex's behavior does not make him very happy or proud of himself and it hurts the woman he seduces, teen-agers may come away with the same conclusion.
