Storyline

Born in America, but raised in Havemahkeeta in India, with a population of 76, Maurice had always to better Deepak Chopra, and be sexually active, ever since he was 12. His Guru, Tugginmypudha, while approving of Deepak, cautions Maurice and has a chastity belt put around his waist, much to Maurice's chagrin. Years later, Maurice has established himself as Guru Pitka in America, but would like to appear in the Oprah Show and be better than Deepak Chopra. When Jane Bullard from the the Toronto Maple Leafs hires him to counsel their star hockey player, Darren Roanoke, to win back his wife, Prudence, from Kings' star player, Jacques Grande, and also stand up to his dominating mother, Lilian, he agrees to do so - with hilarious results.

wonderfully funny movie
26 July 2009 | by See all my reviews

i cannot believe the reviews on this site, it's absurd. my girlfriend and i have watched this flick at least 25 times and shown it to all of our friends. everyone loves it. when we can't decide on something to watch we always just put this one on. great movie!!!

i particularly enjoyed the "saying i love you is not enough" acoustic and sitar jam session in the middle of the movie, and Romany Marco's performance as Darren. timberlake actually was funny and good to watch, even though i'm not a big fan of his earlier work (backstreet boys anybody?? ). and deepak chopra's cameo was great, as well as Ben Kingsley's role as Meyers' guru. it's great to see such a skilled and refined actor still not taking himself too seriously.

check out this movie if you're a fan of any of the Austin powers flicks. you won't be disappointed!!
