Parents Need to Know
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.

Is It Any Good?
The Tao of Steve is a classic "the love of a good woman inspires a man to grow up at last," but it is a sweet, funny romantic comedy with appealing characters and witty dialogue. Logue, a character actor in movies like Steal this Movie, and The Runaway Bride, is wonderful. According to the credits, the screenplay is "Based on a story by Duncan North" which is "Based on an idea by Duncan North," which is "Based on Duncan North." North appears on the movie's website answering questions about love and relationships.
