Philadelphia Inquirer

Piles dumb gag upon dumb gag - it's like benign pummeling. Occasionally, you just have to laugh.

USA Today

By Claudia Puig
Enraptured by bathroom humor that doesn't even reach sophomoric standards. It's more on the level of preschool.

Myers is trying for another of his endearingly hormonal imp-egomaniacs, but hidden behind a wavy beard, a wax-curled mustache, and an...

Not only does the film stumble badly from one skit to another, the skits themselves have too much dead air.

VERY FUNNY MOVIE! Mike Myers is triumphant!!!!

By e-14
GO SEE THIS MOVIE!! Great character acting by everyone involved. A very good story line, very funny. I would not take small children, as the humor is for older teenagers or adults. GREAT...

It's Austin Powers meets Indian Musical

By saintandrew
I'm being generous because its Mike Meyers and I love his characterizations - normally. Love Guru just seems like a retread of Austin Powers. The main character is self absorbed, somewhat jealous of...

Mike Myers taking advantage of built in audience.

By Dave_G78

Wow...it sucked

By darlinglatina
The characters were boring, the jokes fell flat. Justin T., Jessica Alba and the supporting characters were sooo not funny. Mike Myers really tried: hockey, India, a chastity belt, a Celine Dion...

DO NOT SEE THIS MOVIE!!!

mildly amusing at best

By Phoolle
This movie was boring. I might have smiled a couple of times, but that was it. Save your money....
