    Reader comments on The Tao of Steve

    Subject: The Tao of Steve
    Date: Sep 15, 2010
    Sender: The Alf-Alpha and OmegaPrevious

    It's almost as if the reviewer didn't understand the movie. For example, "Is Dex as cool as he thinks he is? Syd certainly seems impervious to his charms. But as soon as Dex starts spouting his Zen philosophies and espousing the seductive merits of Kierkegaard, she too is all over him."

    Let the record show that Syd is unimpressed with Dex's pedantic usage of philosophy. In fact, she counter argues quite effectively dealing a major blow the "Tao of Steve", the rules that effectively allow Dex to hit it off with the ladies.

    What initially attracts Syd to Dex is his ease with children. It's only after she starts to see beyond the facade of the ToS that she is attracted to him.

    Anyway, just one example. I really hope that anyone reading this will give the ToS a chance. It's not super polished but it does have substance. I certainly enjoyed it.
