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.

Trivia

There is an extra scene with Kanye West being interviewed at a hockey game to which Mike Myers has brought him. Each time the interviewer gives the microphone to Kanye, Mike Myers leans in and keeps repeating, "Don't say it, don't say it!" Mike Myers was onstage with Kanye West when Kanye made his infamous 'George W. Bush does not like black people,' statement. See more »

Funniest Film, i've seen since Goldmember
14 July 2008 | by See all my reviews

What are all these other people on exactly....! This really was the funniest film I have seen for quite a few years. The last film to make me laugh out loud this much was another Mike Myers Film - Austin Powers 3 Goldmember.

My girlfriend watched this with me also and even she was crying with laughter. Maybe its an English thing but the humour was right on the button.

DO NOT take any notice of the low score and bad reviews, do yourself a favour, make your own mind up.

I am actually going to see this again over the next week, I really did enjoy it that much.

Keep up the the excellent work Mike....
