How, with such a good cast, can The Love Guru be so painfully unfunny. How can a cast of Ben Kingsley, Stephen Colbert, Jessica Alba, Mike Myers, Verne Troyer, Justin Timberlake, Jim Gaffigan, and many more very talented people be in such a deadly, poisonous piece of junk like The Love Guru? There's nothing funny about this movie. Nothing here is less than completely painful. It's like someone stabbing you in the back and then finishing you off by punching you in the groin. That's how much fun it is. It's quite possibly more painful than that. This movie deserves to be buried in the middle of nowhere. If there was a negative score on IMDb, I would rate it the lowest possible negative score. I'm not even going to go into the plot because I'm too mad reviewing this in the first place. Not a single funny moment in this whole movie, ever minute painful. Mike Meyers has become the anti-Christ of film makers. Never see this movie, even if yours or someone else's live(s) depends on it. Just, in a nutshell, definitely skip this one, you'll thank me later, since you got to skip the pain that is The Love Guru.
I like to think of myself as a person who has an intelligent sense of
what comedy is and dosn't laugh at stupid clichés and juvenile jokes
but I like to laugh and this movie mad me laugh a lot
coupled with some very good performances from people like Stephen Colbert and john oliver i loved this movie
i also thought the plot line was quite good not the thickest but interesting
I can see why some people may not like it but I thought it was funnier than Austin Powers and quite a lot of other silly comedies
I have to say if you have a good sense of humour you will like this movie
My cheeks started hurting by laughing to much.I don't know why so many people hated this film.I saw this movie on one of my vacations from work,and when it cane out,my brother took his girlfriend and asked me If I wanted to go. At first I didn't want to go,because I didn't know what it was at first.But he is a lot different than seeing mike myers in Wayne's world.So it is just for someone who wants a few good laughs................. ............ ... ........ .............. .......... .......... ........... ................ ............ .............. ........................ .................... ............. ... .... ...... ..... ..... .... ........ ..... ...... ........ ...... ..... ...... .....
I was surprised many people didn't love the Love Guru but then I
realized they probably were not very familiar with the self-help
community, self-help seminars, the Eastern Religious movement in
America, or ever sat with a real guru. My familiarity with all of the
above make everything so hilarious in the Love Guru that I have put
this film in my top 20 films of all time.
Mike Myer's giggling guru was dead on! And his jogging hand waving again was so much like happy seminar self-help people that I nearly peed my pants. Guru Pitka's seminar was so funny. Mariska Hargity was genius. You know why these self-help millionaire people smile just like Mike Myers? Because they are making an easy living 9 to 5 telling us why we are miserable.
I brought my DVD to a Buddhist friend's house to see the movie and they thought it was delightfully funny. They were not offended in the least bit. I asked them if they knew Deepak Chopra and they pulled two of his books from the coffee table. I nearly choked with laughter.
Okay, so you don't get the movie. Go read some self-help book, go to a couple of seminars, take yoga and definitely go listen to a few guru. You will get it.
i'm really surprised that so many people hated this movie, especially saying that cat in the hat was better... wtf? i would rather punch myself in the face than see that movie. this movie actually funny, funnier than goldmember and the spy who shagged me, which severely disappoint4ed me. i would first let everyone know, who is reading this, to not believe everything you read about this movie, go buy it, or if you do not have sufficient funds, go rent it or borrow it, and then decide for your own self whether or not you like it. make your own mind up about it, not somebody else's. i give it an 8/10 because i actually watched it and thought it was funny, i didn't leave in the first 15 minutes like all the other retards who reviewed it without finishin the movie
Well, I really don't get what these other people are talking about. I
saw this film just now and laughed my hat of! It's a VERY funny movie!
My guess is that those people never really liked any of the other Mike
Myers movies. This is a Mike Myers comedy! Make no mistake about that!
A very good Mike Myers comedy!
If you like Mike Myers, you really should watch this film. It's one of his funniest ever. Let all these other guys watch The English Patient or whatever it is they're watching. I'll stay with what I like.
I must add that Justin Timberlake is funny as hell! He was great! Vern is also great, as always! I just wish Myers would play more characters, like he did on Austin Powers.
Most people will underrate this movie at first glance, but at a second
viewing, you will start noticing small details revealing the actors'
The comedy in this movie might be dull to most viewers, but please keep in mind the target audience. Take time out to watch it a second time, and you'll see... Mike Myers perfected the role he was casted into. The funny little flinches and shrugs can only be done by him, and he does it perfectly. Another point I want to focus on is the music. The music was absolutely brilliant. Whoever transformed the song "9to5" for the intro was a genius. Not to mention Mike Myers' musical talent. He really added great value to all the musical performances.
Although the storyline and comedy wasn't brilliant, the acting and light-heartedness of this movie boosts the score to at least 6/10 in my books.
It was none stop fun i couldn't stop laughing, The story line is
pointless, but enjoyable i was not disappointed in the movie at all
when it was over i could not stop quoting the movie and talking about
but keep in mind i am an immature teen so some things that were funny to me were not funny to others (more mature less funny people)
If you like bathroom humor and Jessica alba you are in for a real treat. It has some of the same humor as Austin powers but some seemed a little wittier.
Defiantly go see it if you are a teenage guy or an adult that still hasn't grown up yet!
Oh, come on, you people! This should have top ratings - it's a parody,
not a comedy! Very true to life, too.
It is not supposed to be all soft and fluffy. It's more of a satire, and it's funny, brilliant, and courageous.
Misinterpretation and completely wrong expectations are what keeps the ratings so low.
I, too, wasn't impressed with the trailer of the movie - it seemed extremely shallow and vulgar - well, now I consider it a poor trailer for a good movie, - so I didn't go to the movie theatre to watch it (which I regret a lot now). Seeing all the reviews and ratings didn't help much - they all said it wasn't worth watching. So I didn't.
Only by accident, or by luck, I got to see it, flipping through the channels about half a year ago, - from the middle of the movie, of course. The very next day I bought it on a blu-ray; and now I've watched it about 10 times already (and I rarely watch movies twice), and converted all of my friends to the Love Guru admirers.
Over the time, I hope that it gets its deserved recognition - viewer by viewer. So if you haven't seen it yet, don't be confused by the ratings - watch it, and decide for yourself. And if you like it, please, don't forget to come back here and rate it.

This movie is simply painful to watch. I always enjoyed Mike Myers, but this movie was probably one of the worst i've seen. First off, the story isn't funny. There's maybe a few jokes that are laughable, but the rest are simply not funny. On a positive note, Mike Myers singing "9 to 5" and "The Joker" was quite good. Then there was Justin Timberlake role, the thing that really made me hate this movie. His role as a french Canadian (from Quebec) was way too over exaggerated. Using the word "tabarnak" (a french swear word) in every single lines he says just doesn't make it funny. The only good thing in this movie is Jessica Alba. She at least had a decent role. Even Verne Troyer wasn't entertaining. Don't even bother rent it, way for it to play on TV.
