"Well just let me start off with the Austin Powers Trilogy where everyone got a taste of mike myers brand of comedy. But to me, We see bits and pieces of his zanyness scattered throughout the trilogy.
The Love Guru, however, i must say his "zanyness" and humor comes through effectively in the dialogue and almost every scene. This is mike Myers at his best! i'm surprised at the bad reviews this movie got. i was laughing my heads off in almost every scene.
So go grab this movie and some popcorns! This is a "do not have to think too hard" movie that will definitely bring the smiles back to you for at least the duration of the movie!"
No where near as bad as some reviewers claim.

"I guess there are a lot of reviewers here who when it comes to a decent comedy to watch, they roll in hysterics at something as lame as The Jamie Kennedy Experiment or the voice over man repeating the same old lines over a video of someone falling down on un-funniest home videos.
I wish I had not taken any notice of the negative reviews this movie received when it was in theaters and actually gone to see it.
Mike Myers plays the Love Guru, not a dissimilar role to those seen in Austin Power movies, however, the comedy is definitely strong throughout this whole movie.
The Guru is a kid who is taken in by a group that look Indian, but pretty much fictional who teach him that to find love, you must first find love in yourself...yadda yadda... anyway, he grows up and is hired by a woman to go back to Canada with him to help there star Ice Hockey player get himself together.
It doesn't sound like much of a plot to be helping him, himself and others to find a happy ending sort of thing, but it's a comedy, and the comedy works pretty well through out most of the movie. Some things you feel are a bit stale as you have seen Mike Myers do them before, but there is a lot of gags and jokes that just make you burst out laughing during the movie.
It wont win any prizes for greatest character or plot, or any best film awards, but who cares, it's just a feel good comedy with typical Mike Myers humor all through it.
If you can't walk away saying this was at least an OK movie, or you did not laugh through the movie, you really need to have the stick removed from your ###
something I found great was I hate Justin Timberlake, but during his scenes, I didn't even know it was him till I watched a bonus feature. So for the others who cant stand him, it's ok, you wont recognize the dork (to put that very lightly)
Also Mini Me gets a role as the Coach with a speaking role this time, and the midget jokes going throughout this movie where what made the funniest scenes. Holding up a midget and saying, "I'd like to thank the academy for this award...." I don't care who you are, thats a classic right there!
Ignore the reviewers who consider comedy has to be as dull as Friends or something, and just sit back and enjoy the movie not expecting to see comedy for the ages, but something entertaining you can laugh at through out it even if you do think you wouldn't wanna see it again for a while... just give it a go and don't listen to the 1/2 star reviewers who just have it in for Mike Myers no matter what he does.
P.S: Look for Mikes little nod to Waynes World in the movie.

"Fantastic flick. Its a bit of a stretch for the normal movie fan, but I found this highly addictive and funny- my friends and I continuously quote the movie which is a sign that its a definitely an awesome flick !
Don't buy into all the negative reviews... watch it for yourself."
