More Info:
  • Peter Rainer

    What links all these characters is Myers's gift for antic, elfin burlesque. He's like a second-best Peter Sellers.

    Christian Science Monitor Full Review
  • James Berardinelli

    Occasional bursts of comedy keep things from becoming unbearable but whenever Myers tries to get even a little serious or advance the "plot," the desire to take a nap becomes almost overpowering.

    ReelViews Full Review
  • Stina Chyn

    To be sure, The Love Guru is incredibly funny. Side-splitting laughter only stops when the movie does, so don't expect it to linger all the way to the parking lot.

    Film Threat Full Review
  • M. E. Russell

    I still kind of find myself admiring the actor, and the film. Love Guru is insane and self-indulgent but also fully committed, and there's a surprising undercurrent of earnestness to its philosophy portions.

    Portland Oregonian Full Review
  • Steven Rea

    Piles dumb gag upon dumb gag - it's like benign pummeling. Occasionally, you just have to laugh.

    Philadelphia Inquirer Full Review
  • Mick LaSalle

    A disappointment, but it's not a disaster, and that's at least something.

    San Francisco Chronicle Full Review
  • Claudia Puig

    Enraptured by bathroom humor that doesn't even reach sophomoric standards. It's more on the level of preschool.

    USA Today Full Review
  • Richard Corliss

    The Love Guru is a shambling, hit-or-miss thing, like an old Laurel and Hardy two-reeler. And like the situations those comics often got into, this movie is a fine mess.

    Time Full Review
  • Travis Nichols

    If you're a Toronto native or a big-time hockey geek, there are enough little in jokes to probably carry you through the leaden pacing and barrel-scraping gross-out humor, but it's an awfully dull ride for the rest of us.

    Seattle Post-Intelligencer Full Review
  • Michael Sragow

    Newcomers to the Mike Myers experience will leave this love train early.

    Baltimore Sun Full Review
  • Jan Stuart

    The film's sunniest moments occur whenever song preempts all the fighting and smirking. Myers leads the cast in sitar-accompanied covers of such Bollywood favorites as "9 to 5" and Steve Miller's "The Joker," revealing a glimmer of the cross-cultural romp that could have been.

    Los Angeles Times Full Review
  • Brian Lowry

    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.

    Variety Full Review
  • Michael Phillips

    The Love Guru”does not bring out Myer's best, and aside from a deft early Bollywood parody, there’s nothing visually to help the fun along.

    Chicago Tribune Full Review
  • Owen Gleiberman

    Myers is trying for another of his endearingly hormonal imp-egomaniacs, but hidden behind a wavy beard, a wax-curled mustache, and an astoundingly ugly squashed fake nose, he's a little too grotesque.

    Entertainment Weekly Full Review
  • Nathan Rabin

    Myers combines his love of references, silly names, and mindless repetition by having his guru use "Mariska Hargitay" as a greeting/mantra. The first time it's employed, it's merely unfunny; by the 13th or 40th time, it's almost hypnotic in its awfulness.

    The A.V. Club Full Review
  • Kirk Honeycutt

    Not only does the film stumble badly from one skit to another, the skits themselves have too much dead air.

    The Hollywood Reporter Full Review
  • Ella Taylor

    Now and again some pungent writing leaks through to poke fun at the excruciating banality of guru wisdom. But mostly it’s dreary dick jokes and elephant poop, slack directing by Marco Schnabel, and, of all fatal errors, Mike Myers, shooting for cuddly.

    Village Voice Full Review
  • John Anderson

    The results are a wheezy, tired attempt to milk more laughs out of the '60s, by doing exactly what "Austin Powers" did.

    Washington Post Full Review
  • Andrea Gronvall

    This Mike Myers vehicle exemplifies American comedy's continuing slide into infantilism.

    Chicago Reader Full Review
  • Roger Ebert

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

    Chicago Sun-Times Full Review
  • Connie Ogle

    Insulting to anyone with a healthy sense of humor and the simple desire to laugh.

    Miami Herald Full Review
  • Kyle Smith

    The Love Guru is even funnier than "Wayne's World" or "Austin Powers." Not.

    New York Post Full Review
  • Ken Fox

    Adam Sandler can breathe a sigh of relief: Thanks to this crude, bafflingly unfunny comedy from fellow SNL alum Mike Myers, Sandler can rest assured that his "You Don't Mess With The Zohan" won't go down as the worst movie of 2008.

    TV Guide Full Review
  • Wesley Morris

    This is the first time we've seen Myers in the flesh since he committed assault and battery on Dr. Seuss, and I wish the cat had stayed in the hat.

    Boston Globe Full Review
  • Rick Groen

    The Love Guru is a comedy like the Leafs are a hockey team.

    The Globe and Mail (Toronto) Full Review
  • Bob Mondello

    None of them -- not one, not for a moment -- is remotely funny.

    NPR Full Review
  • Joe Neumaier

    An atrocious, idiotic 88 minutes of anti-entertainment. To borrow word-shtick from the guru Pitka, it's AWFUL as in, "Anyone Watching Feels, Um, Loser-ish."

    New York Daily News Full Review
  • Josh Rosenblatt

    It recycles gags from earlier and better Myers movies and hopes that the audience won't notice because they're too busy staring at Timberlake's bursting Speedo.

    Austin Chronicle Full Review
  • Peter Travers

    Ninety minutes pass like an eternity. Verdict: Down for the count.

    Rolling Stone Full Review
  • Stephanie Zacharek

    Offensive to Hindus. Never mind the Hindus; The Love Guru is offensive to pretty much anyone with a brain. Full Review
  • A.O. Scott

    The Love Guru is downright antifunny, an experience that makes you wonder if you will ever laugh again.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • Dana Stevens

    This tale of a guru who brings joy to all who meet him is the most joy-draining 88 minutes I've ever spent outside a hospital waiting room.

    Slate Full Review
  • Joe Morgenstern

    The road taken by The Love Guru could hardly be lower, and leads nowhere.
