The Love Guru

Q: What’s the movie about?

A: The owner of the Toronto Maple Leafs Hockey Team (Jessica Alba) hires her favorite Guru (Mike Myers) to get her star player (Romany Malco) back on track, by reuniting him with his wife.

Q: Who’s in the movie?

A: Mike Myers, Jessica Alba, Romany Malco, Meagan Good, Justin Timberlake, Ben Kingsley, Verne Troyer, John Oliver, Stephen Colbert, Jim Gaffigan, Telma Hopkins, and many great cameos, like Mariska Hargitay.

Q: Is this movie worth the price of admission?

A: PhotobucketProceed with Caution. This movie is random. Which at times is enjoyable. But Mike Myers' comedies tend to play better on the small screen, when you watch them in bits and chunks, and you're only half paying attention. So you should probably wait for DVD.

Q: Will this movie make me laugh?

A: If your sense of humor is as juvenile as mine, you'll laugh.

Q: Will this movie make me cry?

A: If your sense of humor is more juvenile than mine, you'll laugh 'til you cry... Especially if it's your first time getting stoned and you're having a laugh-attack. Because I have to assume that if your sense of humor is more juvenile than mine, you're probably young enough to never have gotten stoned before, thereby still being susceptible to the ever-elusive pot-induced laugh-attack.

Q: Will this movie be up for any awards?

A: No, but it does have elephant sex, so that's impressive.

Q: How is the Acting?

A: Like Austin Powers with an Indian accent and less teeth.

Q: How is the Directing?

A: If it had been paced up a bit, it would be twice as funny. The script is pretty good, but the director lets the actors milk each joke with pauses, as if to say at every turn, "See that? We made a funny."

Q: How is the story/script?

A: Better than the actors make it look. Not you Stephen Colbert. You were impeccable.
