Not that I was planning to rush out to see it anyway, but for any who are, it seems Mike Meyer’s latest film, “The Love Guru“, is no Shrek! According to AintItCool.com :
“…Myers puts a shotgun in the mouth of comedy and kills it. This isn’t merely a bad film, but a painful experience that you keep telling yourself to leave. … It is a pregnant woman smoking a cigarette and drinking a Coors Light.”
I have to say, I’m actually not that surprised. When I saw Meyers on American Idol and the 2008 MTV Movies Awards, each time dressed as the “Guru,” I totally didn’t get the joke. I was hoping that the scripting for those spots was just rushed and that the film might actually have some merit. Guess not. Read the review for yourself, but as for me, I think I’ll pass. Oh yeah, and if you were thinking of seeing “The Happening“, seems like it isn’t much better (also panned in this review).
On a related note, to see an awesome super hero movie, go see “Iron Man” (and hopefully “The Dark Night”). To pretty good super hero movie, go see “The Incredible Hulk.”
