Synopsis

#123movies #fmovies #putlocker #gomovies #solarmovie #soap2day Watch Full Movie Online Free – In his early 30s, the beer-bellied Dex has things figured out. He’s widely read in philosophy, he’s studied Steve McQueen the prototypical cool American hero, and he’s distilled Buddhism and Taoism into three laws that make him a hit with women: don’t express desire, do something heroic in front of her, then retreat. A part-time job with young children, beer, guys, Frisbee golf, pool, poker, his dog Astro, and sex: what could be missing? Then, at his ten-year college reunion, Dex meets Syd, and the “Tao of Steve” may not be enough to get him what he wants. Plus, Syd remembers something important that Dex has forgotten. Can a cool smart guy, 50 pounds overweight, find his bliss?
Plot: Underachieving, overweight kindergarten teacher Dex finds a woman who forces him to reexamine his Zen-like system of seduction.

Warm, delightful profile, of less than physically attractive slacker cad, who has learned the art of seducing women
Prior to writing and filming ‘The Tao of Steve’, director Jenniphr Goodman returned to her childhood home in Santa Fe with her husband after graduating from NYU Film School. There she also lived with one Duncan North, a kindergarten teacher the film is based on. Goodman could not believe how North was able to seduce so many women, given the fact that he was overweight and did not fit the mold of a typical Lothario. She decided to create ‘The Tao of Steve’ based on North’s life, including how he utilized Taoist philosophy and combined it with American pop culture’s embrace of a trinity of ‘machismo’ TV characters including Steve Austin (The Six Million Dollar Man), Steve McGarrett (Hawaii Five-O) and, above all, the ultimate ‘bad boy’ actor, Steve McQueen.

Duncan North is dubbed ‘Dex’ in the film and is played by Donal Logue, an Irish actor who gained significant weight for the role. Logue is perfectly cast as the unlikely seducer of women and the philosophy his character imparts, is a textbook method for being successful with women. The best part of the film involves how he attempts to coach one of his slacker buddies, Dave, who is completely inept when it comes to finding a girlfriend. Dave believes that if he’s simply a ‘nice guy’, women will be immediately drawn to him. Dex makes it clear that ‘nice guys finish last’ when it comes to seducing women. He introduces this three part plan of action with women (which Dave initially rejects): 1) suppress your desire to get her into bed; 2) be ‘excellent’ in her presence and 3) Just when things appear to be going good—retreat!

What’s great about ‘Dex’ is that he first has developed a skill that many men would like to have (the art of seduction) but are unable to follow through on. Dex is so good at what he does, that he eventually seduces a married woman who becomes infatuated with him. Unfortunately for Dex, the woman is married to his best friend, who ends up slugging him in the face when he finds out about his wife’s infidelity.

Dex finally meets his match in Syd, a set designer who was one of Dex’s conquests back in their college days. The fact that Dex can’t even remember that he bedded Syd way back then, becomes a sore point in their relationship. Nonetheless, love conquers all after Dex realizes that a deeper relationship with a woman beats simply seducing them, ad infinitum.

‘The Tao of Steve’ is a rare example of an ‘indie’ film that works! The dialogue is on a high intellectual level (replete with literary references) and the plot is not only entertaining, but educational for clueless males. Greer Goodman, Jenniphr’s sister, who plays Syd, is an excellent foil to the cad, Dex. Special mention must go to James ‘Kimo’ Wills, who plays the ‘in the dark’ Dave. Tao’s ending is a bit sentimental and I wonder if Duncan North actually ended up with a ‘love of his life’, but you’ll nonetheless be impressed with what first time feature director Jenniphr Goodman has done, fashioning a narrative that is both fanciful and decidedly true to life.
