      There comes a point in your life where you want to watch a movie that is real bad, but one of those movies that might be the worst out of the bunch is Mike Myer’s film, The Love Guru. Is this movie real that bad or is there something good about it?

      Darren Roanoke (Romany Malco) is the star play of the Toronto Maple Leafs. He is having problems with his wife, who recently left to be with Jacques “Le Coq” Grande (Justin Timberlake), another hockey player. Jane Bullard (Jessica Alba) seeks the help of Guru Maurice Pitka (Mike Myers) to help Darren with his problems, which would lead his team to win the Stanly Cup.

      Guru Maurice Pitka accepts the job because he is promised $2 million dollars and an invite to the Oprah Winfrey show. If Guru Pitka can make it onto Oprah he will be able to become the number one Guru, a spot that is help by Deepak Chopra.

      I don’t know who to blame for this movie, Mike Myers or


      Graham Gordy. Both men wrote this movie. One is a famous comedian and the other wrote two other movies before this one. Did these two writers figure that all American’s like is penis jokes? The Love Guru is one big penis joke after another, it is ridiculous.

      The films two storylines do blend well together. This might be the best part I say about the movie, other than that the movie is still one big penis joke. Even when the movie is going in the right direction to become a decent comedy movie, one of those jokes is thrown into the picture.

      To try and relive the same magic Myers had with the Austin Powers movies he went ahead and enlisted Verne Troyer. I really didn’t see a point had Verne Troyer in this movie. All he adds to the movie is lame midget jokes that we have heard a billion times. Midgets don’t always sell movies.

      You know a movie should not have been made when a plot twist is two elephants having sex. The Love Guru is that desperate to get someone to laugh. There are more elephant’s gags too. Did you ever hear the joke about Uncle Jack getting off an elephant? Oh it is a classic!

      The movie also adds in some musical numbers, all of which are real bad. During the end credits we are treated to the worst musical number and thanks to Jessica Alba the world now knows she really doesn’t sing in her movies. Maybe it would have made sense to add Justin Timberlake into any of the musical numbers, but hey I guess Mike Myers wanted to be in every shot of the movie.

      Speaking of Timberlake he might be the best part of the movie (oh no another good comment about this movie). For the twenty minutes he is in this movie I either smiled or gave a quick laugh. This man might have the voice of a woman, but as a French hockey player I thought he was great. Now only if everyone else in the film was as good as ...

      Justin Timberlake.

      As bad as The Love Guru is the blu-ray looks good. All of the finer details are perfect. There are times when the blu-ray makes the movie look good, but then you are reminded of how bad the movie is with the jokes. The 2.39:1 image is strong and full of colors; there is never a moment where you can detect any grainy picture.

      The audio is also good as well with its Dolby TrueHD lossless sound. I wish I could say there are moments where the audio is real good, but I can’t. All of the music numbers are bad and the dialogue should be muted out when the film is viewed. I guess the only way people would see this movie if it had a good transfer, good job Paramount.

      All of the extras are in high def as well, yet at the same time all of them are completely useless. The ten minute inside look featurette with Mike Myers is just Myers talking about how good so and so was in

      the movie. Things were hard for him too in certain scenes and we get to hear that, over and over again.

      One Helluva Elephant is an extra that talks about the elephant in the movie. Pretty bad, even the Hockey Training for Actors is bad. Who cares about the actors had to learn hockey, shouldn’t they have put in good extras? Maybe that way more people would buy the blu-ray.

      There are some other extras but I really don’t see the need to talk about them, they are that bad. The bloopers are bad and the extra with Stephen Colbert and Jim Gaffigan will make you hate those two comedians for the rest of your life. Take the digital copy that comes with this movie and throw it away as well, just avoid the extras in general.

      It was real hard for me to watch this movie. Everything you heard about this movie is true. Mike Myers needs to go back into his hole and only lend his voice for Shrek. Skip this movie and don’t even consider buying it.
