When this project was first announced and it was revealed that Mike Myers was creating a new character, there was reason for optimism. The WAYNE'S WORLD movies are masterpieces and the first AUSTIN POWERS (but ONLY the first) was a terrific satire. Since then, however, most of his stuff has been pretty bad. GOLDMEMBER still ranks as an extremely depressing and awful comedy.

Nonetheless, do you think THE LOVE GURU will be any good based on that trailer? The trailer wasn't that funny (Midget jokes? Didn't you do that already?) but I think I might still give it a chance.

And isn't it EXACTLY the same plot as a real stinker from a few years ago called jut "The Guru"? It starred "The Indian Tom Cruise" and a couple bimbettes and the finale was them recreating the "You're the One That I Want" number from Grease.
No good can possibly come from using this vast wasteland of error and deliberate deceit. You should get off of it and warn others away. You should make sure your children and grandchildren know what a corrupt and morally bankrupt institution it truly is.

I might illiegally download it just to watch Justin Timberlake, its like he's bad, and KNOWs and embraces it, and I have to watch
Fear no more the heat o' the sun, Nor the furious winter's rages; Thou thy worldly task hast done, Home art gone and ta'en thy wages: Golden lads and girls all must, As chimney-sweepers, come to dust. ~Cymbeline

What do you think this new character's catch-phrase will be?

The trailer looks awful.
"Impossible is just a big word thrown around by small men who find it easier to live in the world they've been given than to explore the power they have to change it. Impossible is not a fact. It's an opinion. Impossible is not a declaration. It's a dare. Impossible is potential. Impossible is temporary. Impossible is nothing. ~ Muhammad Ali

I think I may see this just out of morbid curiosity. What happened to Mike Myers? WAYNE'S WORLD is a masterpiece and the first AUSTIN POWERS is really good! Blargh!

There was some nightmarish cross-promotion episode of American Idol that featured Meyers as The Love Guru. It made me want to cry. And kill myself. This looks wretched.

It looks dreadful, but I will admit that I bowed to my friend and said, "Mariska Hargitay to you."
Pretty pretty please don't you ever ever feel like you're less than f**ckin' perfect!

Plus, when I first saw a poster a little while back, I thought it was Jimmy Fallon. I guess that proves it could have been worse?

I thought it looked awful. I mean, worse than anything Mike Myers has ever done. I was trying to find a movie to see this weekend for my birthday, but there is just absolutely nothing good opening on Friday.

For the record it's not a new character. It's one he's been working on since 1995. He mentioned it on one of the late night talk shows.

At least this movie doesn't seem likely to break out the ol' Scottish accent.

Just thinking about this movie makes me stop feeling guilty for pawning my Austin Powers trilogy for drug money.

Looks absolutely dreadful.

On the other hand, GET SMART looks like it might be pretty good.

"The gods who nurse this universe think little of mortals' cares. They sit in crowds on exclusive clouds and laugh at our love affairs. I might have had a real romance if they'd given me a chance. I loved him, but he didn't love me. I wanted him, but he didn't want me. Then the gods had a spree and indulged in another whim. Now he loves me, but I don't love him." - Cole Porter

It looks so horrible, I can barely tell if its supposed to be a comedy, I didn't even smile once during the preview. And its been SO over advertised, the bit on American Idol was so stupid

The first time I saw the trailer, I laughed really hard at some points. Now, any time I see advertisments for it, I don't even chuckle. It looks like crap and it's sad because Mike Myers has given some great comedic performances. That being said, if I have to see a movie this weekend, it's going to be Get Smart.
