Love Guru movie Customer Reviews
||Give me a pound. Lock it down. Break the pickle. Tickle...!"|
This movie was voted the worst of 2008 by The Golden Raspberry Awards. It actually received 3 awards. One for Worst Movie, another for Worst Screenplay, and yet another for Worst Actor, Mike Myers. It was also a certified Box Office Bomb. Now, it's things like that which usually grab my interest. I can remember years ago reading the reviews in the papers for Mike Myers' Austin Powers movies, and the critics would almost always trash these films. When I would eventually see the movies for myself, I would enjoy them immensely. It turned out that most times a reviewer would tear apart a movie, most times I turned out to really like those movies. And this is another example of one of those movies hated by critics, but loved by me. Mike Myers plays the character, Guru Pitka, who is a spiritual self-help Guru who longs to be the #1 Guru in the world. He is a rather silly, crude, rude, and bumbling fella who manages to get into all kinds of zany situations. Sound familiar? Yes, Pitka is similar in a lot of respects to Myers' other famous character, Austin Powers. Myers plays the character much like he did Austin, with a sly grin, a knowing wink, and a nod to the audience, and basically hams it up for laughs all the while milking every joke for what it's worth. And ham it up he does. Which is why I love this movie. The jokes aren't the funniest and they're nothing we haven't seen before a dozen times already, but, to see the way Mike and the rest of the cast ham it up in their roles throughout the movie makes it all worthwhile. I found myself chuckling and giggling quite a bit at their antics. Aside from Mike Myers, Justin Timberlake and Ben Kingsley particularly seemed to really have a lot of fun with their performances. So, if you're in the mood for some award-winning and goofy lowbrow comedy, give the Love Guru a try.

||A Funny Movie!|
I thought that The Love Guru was Mike Myers best comedies since the three Austin Powers and the two Wayne's World movies. Mike Myers was so funny in it where every scene he will make you laugh. I hope they make a sequel from this movie. Just like they did to the Shrek trilogy movies Myers did.

I dont know what the hell the last guy is talking about because this movie is hilarious if ur a fan of Myers, seriously its his best comedy since the Austin Powers movies. Definitely worth buying it.

||Mike Myers at his worst|
As good as Mike Myers is, he can also be annoying. I was greatly disappointed with this movie for 2 reasons. First off, Mike is more annoying than funny. Second, the jokes are so stupid that their not funny. Bottom Line: with only a few laughs the Love Guru is a failure.
