The Love Guru (2008)

TOMATOMETER

AUDIENCE SCORE

Critic Consensus: The Love Guru features far too many gross-out gags, and too few earned laughs, ranking as one of Mike Myers' poorest outings.

Do you remember Mike Myers? Well I suggest that you hold on to that memory and lock it tight inside you, because The Love Guru wants to destroy it.

It's a rare film that makes a reviewer consider giving up the movies altogether. My own Waterloo came forty-five minutes into The Love Guru when I briefly considered stabbing out my own eyes so that I wouldn't have to watch it any more.

Naughty Mike Myers comedy has little to love.

Common Sense Media

The Love Guru contains a few clever touches but has trouble hanging together as a coherent comedy, let alone a coherent film.

Audience Reviews for The Love Guru

A movie so absolutely puerile, unfunny and dreadful in every aspect imaginable that it makes you want to take Mike Myers by the hair and beat him with a tire iron. Is there really still anyone in this planet who thinks that name puns and diarrhea jokes are at all funny? (Zero stars)

A horrible movie. I laughed maybe twice at this crappy film, not only was it stupid, there was no point to it. I cant say anything else about it because it sucked so much.

Mike Myers has done it again. He's made another totally pointless, but beyond hysterical movie. As long as you know it's going to be stupid and going for cheap laughs, then you'll have fun. Justin Timberlake is funnier than I thought he would or could be. Jessica Alba still sucks. But it's a good movie about a love guru helping people fix love while he finds it.
