Occasional bursts of comedy keep things from becoming unbearable but whenever Myers tries to get even a little serious or advance the "plot," the desire to take a nap becomes almost overpowering.
50
A disappointment, but it's not a disaster, and that's at least something.
50
Enraptured by bathroom humor that doesn't even reach sophomoric standards. It's more on the level of preschool.

Piles dumb gag upon dumb gag - it's like benign pummeling. Occasionally, you just have to laugh.

Chicago Tribune
The Love Guru”does not bring out Myer's best, and aside from a deft early Bollywood parody, there's nothing visually to help the fun along.

Myers is trying for another of his endearingly hormonal imp-egomaniacs, but hidden behind a wavy beard, a wax-curled mustache, and an astoundingly ugly squashed fake nose, he's a little too grotesque.

The Hollywood Reporter
Not only does the film stumble badly from one skit to another, the skits themselves have too much dead air.
20
An atrocious, idiotic 88 minutes of anti-entertainment. To borrow word-shtick from the guru Pitka, it's AWFUL as in, "Anyone Watching Feels, Um, Loser-ish."
20
None of them -- not one, not for a moment -- is remotely funny.
12
Ninety minutes pass like an eternity. Verdict: Down for the count.

The road taken by The Love Guru could hardly be lower, and leads nowhere.
