"Steve" is the prototypical cool guy, a Steve McQueen, a man who has the ability to attract woman effortlessly. It's the code by which Dex, an oversized kindergarten teacher with a very effective way with women, lives. Dex is self-indulgence personified, until he meets someone who doesn't respond to his technique and uncovers a person who still may be able to grow up.

Sweet, funny romantic comedy for mature audiences.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that this movie has drug use and a lot of drinking and smoking. Dex has an affair with a married woman, the wife of a good friend. Although the resolution of the movie has Dex becoming more mature, the movie makes immaturity (to the point of hedonism) seem very appealing. Dex cites St. Augustine's famous, "Lord make me chaste -- but not yet." Although it is clear that Dex's behavior does not make him very happy or proud of himself and it hurts the woman he seduces, teen-agers may come away with the same conclusion.
