Though employing an utterly conventional romantic design, it tweaks the formula sufficiently...to come across as charmingly distinctive rather than tiredly imitative.
Another reverse-sexist diatribe that knows not what it says about anything related to the sexes.
The Tao of Steve has some genuinely comic scenes, some emotionally interesting scenes, and some inter-sexual insights worthy of expression.
The writing in this movie, by Duncan North, Greer Goodman and Jenniphr Goodman, among others, is as smart as anything I've seen in the past year.
Jenniphr Goodman directs The Tao of Steve with a casual charm that beautifully conveys its offbeat textures and lovable characters.
Amiable and affable, but only occasionally successful in making pertinent observations about the ongoing battle of the sexes.
