Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
59% W. (2008) Since we're dealing with Oliver Stone, a point worth making once is worth making a hundred times, in 100-point boldface type, until not even the dimmest bulb in the audience can possibly miss it.‐ culturevulture.net

Posted Aug 15, 2008
14% The Love Guru (2008) The Love Guru isn't really about spiritual well-being or hockey; it's about Myers' mistaken belief that the comedic possibilities of male genitalia are endless.‐ Fort Worth Star-Telegram/DFW.com
