The Love Guru Trailer

After waiting months to finally discover who (and what) exactly Pitka is, it's finally time for him to be revealed. The Love Guru is Mike Myers' newest movie in which he plays Pitka, an American who was left at the gates of an ashram in India as a child and raised by gurus. This is Myers' first original character since Austin Powers wrapped up in 2002. I'll admit this was high on my curiosity chart, but now that I've seen the trailer, it's dropped pretty much straight to the bottom. This looks exactly like Austin Powers but with longer hair and a mustache, and I mean that in a bad way - this looks downright terrible!

If I had to rank the comedies that just released new trailers, it would go: Get Smart first, Step Brothers second, and The Love Guru last. But maybe I'm being too harsh? Plus, as pretty as Jessica Alba is, she's box office poison. This summer's comedy selection isn't looking too hot so far, besides Get Smart. I'm already predicting a flop with The Love Guru.

The Love Guru is directed by Marco Schnabel, who worked as second unit director on Meet the Parents, Meet the Fockers, and Austin Powers: Goldmember and is now directing his first feature film. The script was written by both Mike Myers and Graham Gordy. The Love Guru arrives in theaters on June 20th this summer.

    It looks ok but wont be nearly as good as Austin Powers was. Mike is a little washed up and dont care for him much now, should have a couple good laughs but not enough.
  • John
    This movie looks absolutely terrible. If the third Austin Powers movie was any indication, this movie proves that Mike Myers' bit is getting tired.
  • Spider
    It appears as though Mike Myers will be giving us a new reincarnation of "Austin Powers" this summer. There were a couple of laughs in this trailer and it's not as bad as made out to be. I think this flick will still do ok. A lot will depend on word of mouth, if this movie is actually good!
  • midget in a mosh pit
    yeah this movie just looks alright I wish he would make another Austin Powers "I took a viagra it got stuck in my throught and i have had a stiff neck for hours i thank you"

    Crazy I know.. and yes I am seeing a counselor for it.. but I am a closet Myers fan... well just outted I guess... and I have to say that I am looking forward to it... please don't stone me... just shrug and say "he is nuts"
  • Nunya
    That was painful to watch.
  • akumared
    Wow, that was not funny. i want my time back please...

    I didn't crack a smile in that entire trailer. This movie looks indescribably terrible.

    Did anyone catch the episode of Iconoclasts with Mike Meyers and Depak Chopra (sp?) At the time, I thought it was a weird pairing, but apparently Meyers has become somewhat spiritual and thats what infused his creation of The Love Guru. I got my hopes up somewhat when Myers explained the freedom from want and how it relates to comedy, laughter, a freeing of the spirit... yadda, yadda, yadda. I actually thought he might have matured a little bit as a comedian. Maybe throw a dash of the melancholy into it. But I can see from this trailer that he's basically trotting out old Austin Powers jokes and putting new clothes on them. If you look back on Meyer's career, that's pretty much been his M.O. He's come up with a few great inventions and I admire his ability to upload catchphrases into the lexicon. But Fat Bastard was only a bloated version of the Scottish father from So I Married An Axe Murderer which was an extrapolation of his "If It's Not Scottish, It's CRAP!" character from SNL. His Cat in the Hat was basically Linda Richman from Coffee Talk on SNL. Austin Powers plagiarized itself to the Nth degree.

    It had a couple of funny moments, but yes it looks like he is trying to capitalize on old Austin Powers jokes.

    I think this would be the perfect time for me to chime in here and say "I TOLD YOU SO". So there, all you who scoffed at my scoffing of this movie on previous Love Guru related posts here on FS.net. Ah, sweet vindication is mine! :)
  • Nick
    How many Razzies will this be nominated for this year? I'm guessing 3.
  • Avelanch
    meh, I'll rent it, I'll be the first to eat humble pie about my comments in the concept thread. This doesn't look like it will be pulled off well... Ill rent it just because I like Mike Myers, but I'm not wasting a theater ticket to see it on the big screen (unless that trailer REALLY did not do the movie justice and it really is good, which I'm hoping)
  • Icarus
    No thank you. That looked awful to me.
  • http://movieguyreviews4u.blogspot.com Ryan
    Yeah, can you say "MASTER OF DISGUISE", great cast and stuff on paper but seeing it, it is pretty awful.
  • nemes1s
    These tools on FS don't know a good comedy if it hit em in the nut sack, probably a bunch of fat white guys who are more into trashy movies like Superbad, Hottie Or Nottie or Meet The Spartans. Something they can relate their sorryselves to, pop your collars douche bags.
  • Nick
    I wish this nemes1s guy would get of Mike Myers' taint.
  • Darrin
    its not jessica alba that killed the movie its justin
  • e.
    Why is Beyonce playing in the background? Did she forge some kind of "trailer contract" with Myer's since she co-starred with him in Goldmember?
  • cornholio_by_the_sea
    the whole Austin Powers thing was a smouldering heap and this shows no promise of being any better...too bad as Mike is a very talented guy ..why he does shit like this is beyond me...must be the $$$$$$$....
  • Andee23
    Now I'll admit this doesn't look the least bit funny, except in a "been there done that" sense. But never judge a film by it's trailer because I can list several awful films, that had pretty decent trailers and vice versa.
  • JimmyTibbs
    Have any of you EVER seen trailers you like? This doesn't look that bad at all. And it's a TRAILER, people. Get a life.
  • harrison
    there were a few funny parts, but the midget bit got old after everyone started having a midget to get more laughs, and why is justin timberlake still getting movie roles?
  • A Fok
    JT was the only thing that made me laugh in this trailer.
  • Charlie
    Someone please tell Mike Meyers he isn't funny. PLEASE!!!
  • raven
    please... it looks ridiculous but it could be great! I'm sure when APowers first came out people thought, "WTF?" Besides, I dare all of you to say this to the man's face!!! Nerves of steel? Nerves of Jello? I'm guessing, "can I have your autograph? Make it out to Dick!"
  • Norair Tokmanian
    love him, my kind of humor....
  • Kaiser Soze
    That looked like a big steaming pile of crap. More midget humor? A stupid accent? Playing on stereotypes for cheap laughs. Mike Myers stinks.
  • myers is a douche
    Please boycott this movie on behalf of the many crew who were fired for NO GOOD REASON on the set of this piece of shit. Mike Myers is crazy. Absolutely nuts. This usually happens to people who at one point were way on top only to fade away. Pure over compensation on his part. I can't even describe to you what an ego maniacal paranoid angry loser he has become. this movie is garbage. please don't bother seeing it.
  • Kevin h
    Hillarous, can't wait to see this movie. Loved it! Pls post more trailers.
  • brendan
    Talk about intellectually bankrupt. Were they smoking crack when they did this? It's nothing more than a dumbed-down, trashed-up version of Peter Sellers character in the Millionairess.
  • myers is a douche
    BOYCOTT THIS MOVIE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
  • ShrekBlows
    Does anyone else think that Mike Myers' charachter's voice is oddly similar to the head lemur in Madagascar voiced by Sascha Baron Cohen? Yeah. Plus the fact that, like harrison said, the midget thing was old before it began. Myers' Scottish accent, or any accent at that = tired. Jessica Alba doing comedy = as per Gook Luck Chuck, not funny. Hokey comedy. I actually think JT is really, really funny.. he's only tied to this movie because he worked with Myers on the last Shrek abortion. Pop culture references out the ass aren't funny anymore. A couple laughs in the trailer, but I think it's just gonna be another self-indulgent Myers corn-fest.
  • Max
    Listen up if the part where Mike Myers had the gong on then asked about the girlfriend did not make you laugh then you are a robot I will admit it was stupid to let this out the same week as get smart
  • an ex-fan
    Mike Myers surrounds himself with people who laugh at whatever lame crap he comes up with. He thinks he's some kind of comedic genius...but it's so obvious he's turned into a rancid hack. Goldmember was unwatchable and so will this guru movie. The trailer was painful. I wish someone would cut off his funding so he had to finance his own movies. He'd go broke soon and we'd never have to watch his dreck again.
  • The Hate Guru
    Always hated Myers, so I'm glad to see the rest of the world is catching up. Canada has pulled a big joke on the US, sending us so many bad, obnoxious comedians (Myers, Jim Carrey, etc) and singers (Celine Dion, Alanis Morrisette, Avril Lavigne, etc.) and seeing them become big stars here that we're forever unable to get rid of. Their loss is definitely NOT our gain. Hopefully this turd of a movie is the final nail in the execrable career of moronic Mike Myers.
