I saw this movie for the second time last night and I was struck by a curious symmetry that totally escaped me the first time. While the core of the movie revolves around the simplistic Taoist rules for getting women employed by the hero, Dex, and their apparent destruction at the hands of "true love" with heroine Syd, there is a curious twist that actually reinforces the Tao of Steve.
MAJOR SPOILER FOLLOWS.......
Consider the actions of Syd. She:
1) loses her desire for Dex. (10 years of loathing after their one night stand took their toll.)
2) shows her excellence in his precense (playing the drums, remember?)
and, then after an hour of screen time full of assorted machinations, she:
3) splits for New York!
So the _real_ message is that the Tao of Steve can not only work for overweight men, but for women as well.
In my view these characters had a long way to go before really falling in love and, in many respects, the movie ends just as the real story about that potential love is about to begin.

The main character of this film is not Steve, but Dex -- an overweight, intellectual, thirtysomething single guy with one philosophy in life: be like Steve. The TAO of the title refers to the attitude of Steve McQueen and other cool, famous Steves, with regards to getting women. So far it's worked for Dex, but when he runs into an old college acquaintance at a reunion, he may have finally found someone immune to the Tao of Steve.
Dex is played by Donal Logue, from the very funny sitcom GROUNDED FOR LIFE. He's charismatic and likable despite flaws (who hasn't got them, after all?) Much of the rest of the cast is composed of friends and family of the director/co-writer, which gives the movie a natural, unscripted feel. The story is based on the real life experiences of Duncan North, who also co-wrote the film. It's a romantic comedy, but with the freshness that indie films seem so much more capable of than Hollywood productions. It's light; it won't have you on the floor with laughter, nor will it touch you deeply, but it is a wholly enjoyable little film, and one which I would recommend.
The DVD contains a commentary track by the director, co-writer, and the two leads, and is casual and interesting. You'll learn about the man behind the movie, and it is worth checking out as well.

Viewer from Wisconsin - you thought it was about golf? What the? I'm not sure what's more worrying: the opinions of people giving you movie advice or the fact that you just blindly purchase DVDs that might be about golf.

The Tao of Steve is one of those rare movies that truthfully captures the essense of modern life, or in this case, modern single-guy life. I could tell you every plot detail, every bit of dialog in this film, and I still couldn't ruin it. It expresses and confirms many of those common, unspoken things that you knew were there all along. Girls will watch the film in disbelieve, while their boyfriends are quietly taking notes.
The title doesn't refer to any one character in the movie, but rather the mystique of the quintiessential American Guy (aka, "Steve") who is cool and hip and gets all the girls without even trying. Main character Dex is the embodyment of the Tao, as he has many, many beautiful girlfriends despite being rather portly, unkept, and a loser in professional life. Sheer personality and cunning allow Dex to figure out women and win their affection (or specifically, to have sex with them). The film's plot revolves around his (successful) struggle to win one non-responsive girl in particular (named Syd), and also explain to his guy friends how the master gets the job done.
The rules of the Tao of Steve are simple yet easily misunderstood, and the film does a great job of fleshing them out into something real and concrete. Dex's "conquest" of Syd is especially fun to watch because it realistically twists and turns throughout the movie, and you'll appriciate the "dorky guy" character who, while watching from the sidelines, asks all the stupid "what if" questions you've ever wanted answered.
I was amused that the ending was so obviously sanitized for the ladies.
