Devoted followers of Mike Myers will gain some inspirational comedy and romantic guidance by making an appointment to see “The Love Guru.” It’s a polarizing and harmless little film that some will love and others will loathe.
Guru Pitka (Myers) is the second most popular guru in the world and he has lived his entire life in the shadow of his nemesis, Deepak Chopra. Pitka thinks he can dethrone Deepak by appearing on “The Oprah Winfrey Show,” but he needs a hook to get booked.
In order to score some positive press, Pitka goes to work for the Toronto Maple Leafs to help reconcile the marriage of their star hockey player, Darren Roanoke. Can Pitka instill his magic on a stubborn professional athlete, save the season and get the call from Oprah? Has Sir Ben Kingsley lost his mind or is he just broke? You don’t need a self-help expert to answer these questions, just a movie ticket.
