Consensus: The Love Guru features far too many gross-out gags, and too few earned laughs, ranking as one of Mike Myers' poorest outings.

They say sarcasm is the lowest form of wit. Well 'they' obviously haven't seen 'The Love Guru', an overgrown dirt-patch of clunking juvenilia.

If you're in the mood for a delightful tweak of today's self-actualizing New Age gurus, look elsewhere. If, on the other hand, you want to see gags about boogers, elephant poop, and mano-a-mano duels with mops drenched in urine, then this is for you.

It's just deadly.

The endless winks at the camera look more desperate, the jokes at Troyer's expense seem more tasteless.

What Culture

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.

The Love Guru is insulting to anyone with a healthy sense of humor and the simple desire to laugh.

Mike Myers is anti-comedy . . . that is, if one presumes comedy ought to be smart, new, surprising or, yes, funny.

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.

A movie so absolutely puerile, unfunny and dreadful in every aspect imaginable that it makes you want to take Mike Myers by the hair and beat him with a tire… More

Not that funny and/or exciting. Although Justin Timberlake was brilliant and I would probably watch more of him doing that character.

A horrible movie. I laughed maybe twice at this crappy film, not only was it stupid, there was no point to it. I cant say anything else about it because it… More

As stupid as stupid goes, a few nuggets here and there, ok-ish.

Mike Myers has done it again. He's made another totally pointless, but beyond hysterical movie. As long as you know it's going to be stupid and going… More
