So if the blogosphere, online reviews, movie websites, written media, multimedia, and general word of mouth are to be believed, the Love Guru starring Mike Meyers might just go down as the movie that killed funny and will certainly be gracing the Razzie award nomination pages.
A strained effort from the beginning, it made this 80 some odd minute experience a nauseating affair comparable to long distant car rides with petulant singing children ceaselessly repeating the refrain, "the song that never ends". A truly unbearable affair of unfunny requiring a shower and Robot Chicken to reclaim a sense of humanity/ sanity and restore my faith in laughter. It can not be said however that faith in Mike Meyers will ever return. His latest foray into live action since the dissapointing Cat in the Hat in 2003, leaves this blogger shaken at how hard the once mighty can fall.
