Described as :
A hilarious comedy starring Mike Myers as guru Pitka in his first original character since the blockbuster hit Austin Powers. Myers plays an American raised in India by gurus (Tugginmypudha & Satchabigknoba) and returns to the U.S. in order to break into the self-help business. His unorthodox methods are put to the test when he must settle the romantic troubles and subsequent professional skid of a star hockey player (Romany Malco), whose wife left him for a rival athlete Jacques Grande (Justin Timberlake). Mini Me is back from Austin Powers and plays the hockey coach for more classic comedic moments that will have audiences laughing from opening to closing credits.

Frankly, I did not find one thing hilarious about this movie. I kept thinking that when Mike Meyers' marriage fell apart, he must have gone to ashram to heal. Or maybe his wife did. Either way, he has a huge ax to grind with the world of Deepak Chopra. And who wants to see Austin Powers trying to be spiritual and wise? We won't him to be naughty, sassy and misbehaving.

I would not recommend this movie unless you are a HUGE Mike Meyers fan and can watch whatever he is in, even if it doesn't work.
