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? Written by

This is a movie that opened my eyes to the world of dating and one-night stands. It is about an overweight and scruffy-looking dude that is a womanizer. Dex doesn't fit the stereotype of a womanizer (slick and fast talking, usually well-dressed and clean shaven). That was the genius behind this film. This is a movie that a lot of people should eventually get wind of and will possibly see. Not many critics consider it a classic, but I think qualifies for title of "minor classic." I give it a 10 out of 10.
