Here We Go... They’ve Started Screening THE LOVE GURU!

Hey, everyone. ”Moriarty” here. I’m fascinated by this film. Totally flippin’ riveted. I can’t wait to see it. And I can’t wait to see what happens with it as far as audiences are concerned. What does Mike Myers mean at the box-office right now? What place does he have in what’s happening in comedy right now? I’ve been on the record since the early days of this site as being a big fan of Mike Myers. I confess some frustration with the direction his career’s gone in the time I’ve been at AICN. Even so, I’m always rooting for him to come back and reassert his relevance. So believe me... I’m looking for any and all reactions to the screenings they’re having now. I’d love to hear from hardcore comedy geeks out there seeing this film. I think Myers is going to test the crap out of it to fine tune it with Marco Schnabel, the director, and Mike Deluca, who I think was a pretty valuable ally to Myers on the AUSTIN POWERS movies, and a good creative partner for him. Remember... this is one opinion, and I’m going to keep my fingers crossed until I see the film myself. They’ve got a lot of time to work from now until June:

Harry, Last year i wrote in on a screening of Black Christmas so i thought I would share my latest adventure with you. Last night I was lucky enough to attend the first screening of the new Michael Myers movie "The Love Guru". Here is how it went down. We arrived at the theatre at 6 o'clock on the nose and as soon as we walked through the entry-way we were pulled aside rushed to the theatre, basically stripped searched, and robbed of our camera phones. We entered the theatre and an hour and ten minutes later a man in a suit who looked like someone who was way more important than he really is, tells us we are the first audience to see the film, and the effects arent complete, and yadda yadda yadda... then they start the movie. After an hour and forty minutes of typical Mike Myers Schtick... aka: Anagrams, funny sexual names, spastic movements, down right silliness... so after a lot of recycled jokes, a blah storyline, some clever fresh mockery of Indian films, a couple of smiles, a few good laughs, and one almost-to-tears-trying-to-hold-in-an-outburst laugh... it was over. Jessica Alba was hot... Justin Timberlake was funny... and Vern Troyer proved he can sorta act... but anyway you slice it, midgets equal funny. The hockey scenes were lame (Oh yeah... the movie is about a black superstar hockey player that can't play anymore because the goalie of the opposing team stole his wife and the Toronto Maple Leafs pay a Guru to get them back together. However, the guru has his own agenda to be the worlds greatest Guru so he needs to get on Oprah and figures if he can do this she will put him on) and the last time I checked i thought there were more than 7 or 8 guys on a team... but i suppose that doesn't matter. Thats about all I have to say about the movie. It was not really memorable like the Austin Powers movies... but it wasn't an unpleasant experience by far. Always a devoted fan, Secret Squirel
