The most impressive thing about The Love Guru is how much talent it managed to steal from The Daily Show. Samantha Bee, John Oliver, and Stephen Colbert all play small supporting roles in it. Good thing too, because Mike Myers was in dire need of help. He made a lot of exceptionally dumb mistakes in getting it onto the screen which a lot of other filmmakers really would have thought better of, up to and including his decision to play an Indian, Hindu guru. I realize that Hollywood progressivism …

This movie was just about the funniest dumb movie ive seen in a while. Mike meyers is funny as ever (as long as you can ignore the small parts where austin powers takes over) and justin timberlake is outright hilarious! I didnt even realize that it was him at first but once i did it made it all the better.

I thought this film was alright. Most of the story, at least what there is of one, is obviously from the mind of Myers. He is fantastic at creating strange characters and bringing them to life. The thing here is the titular character is better suited to a recurring skit instead of a full length film. The initial joke wears off long before the closing credits and much of the humor is just a variation of the same theme.     Basically Myers plays Guru Maurice Pitka, the second most …

Forget about Mike Myers for a minute. Let's begin with Ben Kingsley, the Oscar winning actor who actually appears in "The Love Guru"; he plays a cross-eyed spiritual advisor from India, and his name is not a double entendre so much as it's a blatant sexual reference smushed into a single word. The sight of this man is hilarious, and yet I didn't want to laugh because I know that Kingsley has made so many better choices than this film. What possessed him to act in a film this …

Plot [Don't blink]: The world's second-rated spiritual advisor is hired to de-stress a professional ice hockey player.     This movie had me in stitches [after I got injured in the stampede for the exit] and will most certainly go down in history [as one of the worst movies ever made]     Jam packed with humor from start to finish [potty, crotch, midget, crude, one-liners] it is undoubtedly the work of a comedic genius [who has crossed the line to madness …

I'm usually quite tepid toward comedy films of any kind. I like smart comedy, stuff that makes me laugh at more than seeing two elephants, um, copulating.    In recent years I've read all sorts of reviews that try to find more depth in a movie than it, on the surface, even proclaims to offer.    The Love Guru, for as silly as it is, had me laughing through about 90%. Admittedly I'm biased toward all things Indian (and this didn't quite stand up to 2003 The …
