Picks and Pans Review: The Tao of Steve

Donal Logue, Greer Goodman

Dex (Logue) is an unlikely babe magnet. A kindergarten teacher with a sizable spare tire, he nonetheless scores easily with the ladies, reeling them in with a silky line of patter and a laid-back demeanor modeled on the innate cool of movie tough guy Steve McQueen. It is only when Dex falls for a wisely wary set designer (Goodman) that he finally learns to say what he means and mean what he says.

A refreshingly quirky romantic comedy, Steve features believable characters and smart, snappy dialogue that juggles references as diverse as Aristotle and TV's Six Million Dollar Man. Logue (The Patriot) owns the movie, deftly transforming himself from charming lout to sincere but still charming swain. (R)

Bottom Line: A hefty love story
