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.
| Original Score: 1/5
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.
| Original Score: 2/10
Naughty Mike Myers comedy has little to love.
The Love Guru contains a few clever touches but has trouble hanging together as a coherent comedy, let alone a coherent film.
| Original Score: 1.5/4
...might just be the most puerile mainstream movie ever made...
| Original Score: 2.5/4
Pitka's character seems overly based on what's convenient for a given scene.
I guess the real audience is 40 year-old men with the mind of an 8 year-old.
It's hard to take any of it seriously -- which would be fine if it were funny, but it's not.
| Original Score: 1.5/5
Allow me to say this very clearly: this is not a good movie.
| Original Score: 4/10
It appears Myers did not have someone behind the camera reigning him in. Too bad.
| Original Score: 2/5
Myers has his head in the toilet more than a Florida State University freshman co-ed during homecoming weekend.
| Original Score: .5/4
Like a kid let loose in a toy store, this bad boy horny guru could have used more direction, but he does impress with his driving skills atop a pachyderm, during elephant sex.
...fairly mindless stuff that may appeal to die-hard Myers fans.
| Original Score: 3/10
I am still comfortable believing Myers is a comic genius, but it's no where to be seen here.
The whole vaguely pitiable enterprise has tiny flickers of brilliance which can't be denied, but almost can't be detected, either.
Most jokes are centred around either genitalia or that Austin Powers-style of wink-nudge faux sexuality, which doesn't work at all with this character.
At one point Kingsley's character makes his pupils duel with mops soaked in his own urine. If you think that's funny, be my guest.
| Original Score: 0/5
Funny in fits and starts, though the fits are a little convulsive and the starts seldom come with a convincing ending or pay-off.
The puerile levels to which it sinks make even Goldmember, the crudest of the Austin Powers movies, look like Brief Encounter.
