    Our Verdict:

    Can anyone tell me why the hell I am watching this movie? Ah, it is because of Jessica Alba. So Mike Myers returns with his comical non-sense movie about a love master hailed from India. Yeah right, and his mission is to help a ice hockey star to hitch back with his wife, seems to left him. This resulting him unable to play hockey well. So the team is desperate to have their star player back on form - thus requesting Guru Pitka to help him! Exciting right but let's face it, like Austin Powers; this movie is just explicitly portrayed but not up to the level of Sarah Marshall's. I like the use of words, lines and quotes but I don't really like the lame joke. At some part, I wasn't even laughing, simply just too lame to laugh at. Okay, I found the word, giggleable not laughable kind of jokes.
    Casting was okay, seems like the whole bunch of peoples here are from the best of the best in comedy, also with a long list of cameos in the movie. I like the song rendition used in the movie where Myers singing with his sitar. Simply feels good and I think that's all that is good about it.
    The rest of the movie had to endured with lamity, bored jokes, trying to be explicit but yet not encouraging enough to be considered as good. Lame comedy again and I wonder what other magic Myers can made other than these? Don't get me wrong, i didn't really panned the movie yet but if you are intersted in mild crude explicit joke, go ahead!!
