The Love Guru Arrives With A Splat

File under: The Siddhi of PR

We'll add: a much bigger splat than it would gotten had all those fame-whoring Hindu "leaders" found another cause to attach to their dreams of hitting the big-time:
"Not only does the film stumble badly from one skit to another, the skits themselves have too much dead air."

"Unlike Dr. Evil, who wasn’t afraid to be unlikable, Pitka’s schtick is one giant cry for acceptance -- eccentric but not challenging, therapeutic but not cathartic -- which is absolute death to comedy."

"More painful than sitting next to an Austin Powers impersonator during a 12-hour flight."

"The Love Guru is so relentlessly juvenile as to merit a new twist on the PG-13 rating -- one that strongly cautions not only those under 13 but anyone much above it, too."

"Offensive, revolting and jawdropingly awful from beginning to end, a complete and total piece of Singularly Horrid Infantile Trash (TM)."
Sorry, Mike. If you'd have invited us to the premiere, we'd have posted the one good review this stinker received. And to Rajan Zed and the other haters: great job on getting a bad movie much, much, much more attention than it ever deserved. You were drinking the Mike Myers/Paramount Kool-Aid the whole friggin' time. Dupes.

It works two ways Jody. Who knew Rajan Zed before he was invited to the US congress for his prayer. Both Rajan and Myers share a symbiotic relationship.Even Deepak chopra and myers share this symbiotic relationship. The goal from all quarters is to get the maximum amount of news coverage.

Meyers said in a TV interview given on 6/19/08, that he made Austin Powers and the Love Guru in memory of his father, who passed away. His father said that the meaning of enlightenment was to "lighten up". Thus, these two movies are a tribute to his father (The Love Guru, celebrating an anniversary of his death).

Dr. Evil and a friend were allowed (solo) onto the Brooklyn Bridge in NY City to view the 4th fireworks, when the bridge was closed for security reasons during that holiday. Meyers and his friend were running to try to catch the display before they went off. They could not make the actual site of the fireworks, so Meyers started up the bridge and was stopped by police. When one officer saw who it was, he shouted to his police friend in the area, Hey Joe, Dr. Evil is here, he's on his way up the bridge with a friend, let him up. There they watched as the light show started.

Go Meyers, in this tribute to his father.

Indians protesting against this movie clearly proves what I have always believed in .That we are the worst racists not the Whites.

For several decades ,Tamil movies for instance, have come up with far more blasphemous songs and stories. The dravidian CM karunanidhi,DK periyar, kamal hassans etc have written and spoken shockingly scurrilous and vitriolic stuff and nonsense about Hindu Gods. Even now Indians of all hues worship them.
Just because a WHITE skinned person has made this inocuous spoof hindus are bristling with rage.

Seriously, something is wrong with us.We need to take a hard honest look at ourselves.We are such idiots and idiocy is incurable.
