Mike Myers stars as Pitka, The Love Guru, in a story about a relationship guru who returns to America to help a hockey superstar get his game back. Kidzworld takes a closer look.

Number 2 Guru

Maurice Pitka (Mike Myers) was left at the front door of an ashram when he was a baby, and was raised by the his master Guru Tugginmypudha (Ben Kingsley) into a respected guru himself. Even though he’s very successful, Pitka is really jealous of his childhood friend and number one celebrity guru Deepak Chopra. With dreams of becoming world-famous, Pitka travels to America to try to be on the Oprah Winfrey show.

Stars on Ice

When he gets to America, Pitka gets his chance to step into the spotlight when the owner of the Toronto Maple Leafs hockey team (Jessica Alba) is struggling with a slumping superstar (Romany Malco), whose game is off because his marriage is on the rocks, and his wife is now hanging around with Jacques Grande (Justin Timberlake).

Putting the WE in WINNER

Since this is supposed to be a comedy, it’s obvious that things don’t go very smoothly for Pitka and hockey star Darren Roanoke. Pitka and Coach Cherkov (Verne Troyer) don’t get along to say the least, and our guru spends as much time trying to hook up with Alba’s character, Jane Bullard, as he does trying to help out. Can Pitka really manage to bring everyone together and become a famous love guru? And will Roanoke finally help the Toronto Maple Leafs win the Stanley Cup?

The Bottom Line

Mike Myers has made some funny movies, and invented some funny characters, but doesn’t manage to do either in this movie. The whole thing is an immature stretch of jokes based on bodily functions, and you almost feel embarrassed for the actors as it’s all going on. This movie might have been decent in the late ‘90s when Austin Powers was popular, but viewing audiences are looking for movies like Superbad and Juno if they want a laugh now. Mike Myers isn’t that funny anymore and Pitka is no Dr. Evil, that’s for sure.
