    Synopsis


    The Love Guru
    Austin Powers trilogy star Mike Myers collaborates with writer Graham Gordy for this comedy concerning a self-help guru named Pitka (Myers) who devotes his life to unknotting the romantic entanglements of troubled couples. As a young child, Pitka is abandoned at the gates of an ashram in India and taken in by kindly gurus. An American by birth, Pitka absorbs the lessons taught to him by his teachers and later returns to the United States to become a leading authority on spirituality and self-help. While Pitka's methods are decidedly unorthodox, they may be the only means of ensuring that the Toronto Maple Leafs win the coveted Stanley Cup. Maple Leafs star Darren Roanoke (Romany Malco) is in trouble. His estranged wife has recently begun dating L.A. Kings star Jacques Grande (Justin Timberlake) in a vengeful effort to send her husband's career into a tailspin, and when Roanoke starts to falter on the ice, the whole team starts to suffer. As their visions of leading the Maple Leafs to the Stanley Cup are quickly going up in flames, team owner Jane Bullard (Jessica Alba) and Coach Cherkov (Verne Troyer) enlist the aid of the world's best-known relationship expert in restoring the peace between Roanoke and his wife, and getting their team back on track to the championships. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

      ALL TIME FAV. MOVIE - must watch more than once!!

      I'm shocked that this movie wasn't on the list of the greatest movies ever made!! The first time I watched it, I thought it was cute and funny, but I didn't understand all the implications at that time, only a few. So, I watched it again, and I understood even more. Then, I googled a bunch of terms/words from the movie that I didn't get and watched it again... HOW HILARIOUS!! I think people miss a lot when watching this only once... you MUST watch it several times to catch it all!!! My husband and I just put this movie on all the time to watch it, giggle, and even for background noise! It's great! I think they hid a lot of "implications" well from children, too, so there's not a whole lot of foul language nor adult content. Of course, it depends upon who you are and how you raise your children, but I think I would want kids to watch it to learn the positive messages in it... just have to be ready to explain things if they ask questions about what they don't understand if you're laughing or whatever. This movie has most definitely put Mike Myers at the top of my list for comedy movies #above Jim Carrey#!!! I love all the songs in it and appreciate the real voices of the actors in it, too! I walk around singing all the songs! HEE HEE. I find myself quoting a lot from it, too. I just can't say enough about this movie and how it has actually impacted my life! I will continue to watch it over and over as one of the All Time Favorite Movies of this household! I have recommended this movie to ALL my family & friends!

      I need to stick up for this movie that both my young adult children feared would not be good. It is very good, almost a thinking person's slapstick with many hilarious jokes and in-jokes. Love the "hindu" greeting of Mariska Hargitay. Love love love Steve Colbert as hockey sportscaster and recovering drug addict. His DVD extra is very funny too! Great for laughs but you do have to pay attention for the comedy. I liked watching it alone the first time.

      Really not very good

      This movie was very funny in spots, but overall it was pretty awful. There were eight of us who watched it together, with a wide variety of tastes, and all of us were disappointed. While there were some very funny lines, there was a lot more groaning--both out of nausea and embarrassment--than laughter.

      Now The Love Guru is not the best film every made, by any means. It is however a fun family film that I remember watching frequently years ago. Best had a great deal for this film at one point - 3.99.

      If you like Mike Meyers you will like this. Not as good as other Mike Meyers movies Like Austin Powers or Wayne's World but not bad.
