In the comedy, The Love Guru (Mike Myers), Pitka is an American who was left at the gates of an ashram in India as a child and raised by gurus. He moves back to the US to seek fame and fortune in the world of self-help and spirituality. His unorthodox methods are put to the test when he must settle a rift between Toronto Maple Leafs star hockey player Darren Roanoke (Romany Malco) and his estranged wife. After the split, Roanoke's wife starts dating LA Kings star Jacques Grande (Justin Timberlake) out of revenge, sending her husband into a major professional skid - to the horror of the teams' owner Jane Bullard (Jessica Alba) and Coach Cherkov (Verne Troyer). Pitka must return the couple to marital nirvana and get Roanoke back on his game so the team can break the 40-year-old "Bullard Curse" and win the Stanley Cup.

    Has it really been 11 years since Austin Powers first hit cinemas? Wow. I love the Austin Powers series. I love Wayne’s World 1 & 2 even more than that. After the third Austin Powers film came out,...

  • so very funny from a person who has lived with a guru in India

  • a very funny movie , not in the austin powers class , but still managed to get some big laughs. Mike Myers is a vey clever guy

  • I didn't even add this movie to my queue, it was sent to us by mistake. Definately not a movie I would even think of watching but thought we'd have a look anyway. What an absolute waste of time! Only watched about 20mins, couldn't stand another second. I was embarrassed for the actors. Don't bother with this movie, my 3yr old son has DVD's that I would rate 10x better.

  • Whilst not the five star quality of Austin Powers, it passes the most important test of comedy, it made me happy the whole time I was watching it.

  • I really enjoyed this movie. Not your classic love story and the ice hockey scenes were spectacular especially when you realise that Romany Malco did his own stunts. The music was fun - I especially loved the duet between Mike and Manu Narayan (Rajneesh), More than Words, enough to search out the sheet music. Obviously it????????s Mike Myers and there????????s plenty of quite basic humour, fortunately not as gross or silly as his Austin Powers movies. Poking fun at the self-help scene was nicely done without being too disrespectful and I was very impressed that Deepak Chopra was tempted into a cameo role. It????????s well worth watching the special features too.
