DETAILED STORYLINE
.
Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Comedy - This is a silly comedy with a lot of suggestive humor not unlike star Mike Myers's Austin Powers films--so the raunchy content should bring some pause for parents of young children. Older teens and young adults in general are the target, particularly males. This is Myers's show all the way, with all the other cast members clearly secondary.

Critic's Review Heading

Berardinelli, Internet Critic Full Review
Above Average Although the film can boast clusters of clever and/or amusing material, they are not sprinkled liberally enough to obscure how thin all other aspects of this production are.

Roger Ebert Full Review
Poor Myers has made some funny movies, but this film could have been written on toilet walls by callow adolescents.

USA Today Full Review
Average The Love Guru is enraptured by bathroom humor that doesn't even reach sophomoric standards. It's more on the level of preschool.

D ETAILED S TORYLINE
Pitka (Mike Myers) 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 U.S. 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 start hockey player Darren Roanoke (Romany Malco) and his estranged wife. After the split, Roanoke's wife starts dating L.A. 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.
