Mike Myers is an Indian self-help guru assigned to help a hockey player get back with his wife in order to help him become a better player. Despite having Stephen Colbert and Jim Gaffigan, this is wholly unfunny.

mike meyers is a comedic genius, same feel to it as the Austin powers movies

A comedy so offensively bad, it almost makes Adam Sandler movies look bright and acceptable.

this movie made me laugh a decent amount. it also had some of the worst and dumbest jokes and certain parts that i couldn't believe were really in a movie (1 viewing)

This movie doesn't get enough credit. Some of Mike Meyers' funniest stuff.

So bad that it hurts.

Ignore the critics: this is a hoot (for the most part). Every gag is blissfully awful and non-PC and Mike Myers is like a Hindu version of Austin Powers, trading in hilarious platitudes and triple entendres shamelessly. Yes, it goes off the rails at times - and no, it's not The Greatest Laughterfest of All Time. But it's perfect popcorn with a few beers. And it features the best performance by Ben Kingsley since Schindler's List.

If you enjoyed the specific comedic style of the Austin Powers movies, there are definitely some laughs to be had but the shtick is so heavy handed and childish that it wears thin fast. I must say that this should not be considered one of the worst comedies ever as it often is. Adam Sandler sleepwalks through his current crappy comedies; Myers at least gives it his all.

Worst movie ever. If you want to make fun of a religion or a culture then at least try harder.... :/

I fucking loved this movie. Sorry. not sorry. No reasons. It's ridiculous yeah. But it made me laugh and entertained the hell out of me. So, mission accomplished.

Not a brilliant comedy, More slapstick than anything, Abit corny but there are some laughs to be had just not enough.

The Austin Powers' Trilogy really shot up Mike Myers' comedy career, and this is a testament to that. I am a movie collector that has seen A LOT of comedy movies, them being my specialty of course. Although this movie is lowballed by many film critics, this is actually my FAVOURITE movie of ALL time! This movie is comedy gold on the cast's behalf. The characters throughout the movie have well-placed side plots that all add up in the end. An awesome script that seems like natural comedy creates a flowing script, an example including the alligator soup being snappy joke. I understand that to some people this might not be funny, but in order to get the most out of the movie, you have to look at it the way it was intended to be looked at. Although all of this is my opinion, the movie is truly hilarious in many ways. But you can decide for yourself.

This movie accomplishes exactly what a good comedy should, plently of laugh out loud moments. I'm no Alba fan but even I wasn't as annoyed by her as I usually am. Even the acting-challenged JT couldn't quell my laughter. No it can't match the magic of Austin Powers or the classic qualities of Wanye's World but it gets the job done. Very quote worthy!

My initial reaction after watching this was very telling. I wondered if the editors, while working long and hard nights, saw the shot footage and knew it was unsalvageable mess. To imagine that every scene in the final cut was the best possible outcome is painful. I can only imagine how nauseous the on-set experience must have been.

Mike Meyers is back, as funny as ever. The preview was hilarious, but it had a bit of an Austin Powers feel to it.

I love Mike Meyers. And he really does try his best on this one. But I keep feeling like there's something inherently unfunny about an Indian guru. Not quite sure why, but despite his best attempts this just didn't work. And apparently all great comedic actors are incapable of discerning whether a script is good or bad, and accept all movie offers that come their way. Will Ferrell, Eddie Murphy, Mike Meyers... They all do great stuff as well as total bombs. This movie was unwatchable, unfunny, and an embarrassment for all involved. Just a bunch of silly gags that fall flat. But Jessica Alba is, as always, hot. I suggest you watch Austin Powers or Wayne's World instead.

Offensively bad. The less said the better; stay far, far away from this tripe.
