For example: his key adversary (Timberlake in-joke though it is) is called Le Coq, has a car with licence plates reading Big Coq and a luxury villa where a cock, a Rhose Island Red, is the house.
The Love Guru is a 2008 comedy film and the first major live action big-screen performance from Mike Myers since the Austin Powers trilogy. It's the story of an American-born but Indian-raised self-help guru named Guru Pitka, whose dream is to surpass the famous Deepak Chopra as North America's number-one, go-to self-help guru. To do this, Toronto Maple Leafs manager Jane Bullard ropes him in.

The Love Guru. The Love Guru. His Karma is Huge. Born in America and raised in an Indian ashram, Pitka returns to his native land to seek his fortune as a spiritualist and self-help expert.

SEEMS Gandhi has given Mike Myers' Love Guru his seal of approval. NOT! Actually, Sir Ben Kingsley has, and in one fell swoop he's totally destroyed any esteem his Oscarwinning role won him.
Mike Myers can't seem to get enough of himself in The Love Guru. He's constantly giggling at his own jokes, and mugging for the camera as if he thinks his latest comedy creation is the funniest thing he's invented. I had a very different reaction. Pitka was born in America, and traveled to India to study under the cross-eyed Guru Tugginmypudah (Ben Kingsley), who taught his students lessons by.
The Love Guru was a total flop in the theaters but I think it’s a worthwhile comedy. It features Mike Myers as Guru Pitka. It’s a romantic comedy as he falls for Jessica Alba as Jane Bullard, the owner of the Toronto Maple Leafs. She hires Pitka to help her team win the Stanley Cup by providing therapy to her star player Romany Malco as Darren Roanoke. He has problems with his mother.
Guru Pitka (Mike Myers) is the world's second-best guru, but when he's asked by the owner of an ice hockey team (Jessica Alba) to reunite their star player (Romany Marco) with his estranged wife.

The Love Guru packs a few laughs, mainly thanks to Ben Kingsley’s shameless parody of his Gandhi role as Pitka’s mentor. But Myers has saddled first-time director Marco Schnabel with routines over-familiar from the Powers movies, with pointless cameos (Kanye West, Stephen Colbert), cruel gags at the expense of Mini-Me Verne Troyer and redundant musical sequences. And what kills The Love.
While Jay Roach shot to popularity directing the Austin Powers series, it is clear that Marco Schnabel (with his lack of comic sensibilities here) will not have any such luck with The Love Guru. Compared to Mike Myers here, Justin Timberlake as an obnoxious, arrogant French ice hockey player Jacques “Le Coq” Grande is the scene stealer.

In The Love Guru, Myers’s title character is charged with reuniting hockey player Romany Malco with his girlfriend, without whom Malco is unable to perform on the ice. Myers must pry Malco’s girlfriend away from rival hockey player Justin Timberlake (as Jacques “Le Coq” Grande; guess what part of his anatomy provides the humor), whose Los Angeles Kings will shortly be playing Malco’s.
The Love Guru subscribes to the belief that even the most baseline humor will find an audience with the world's most unsophisticated moviegoers (or, as the case might be here, young teens finding their first trip to a PG-13 flick). Turns out that Mike Myers, first-time director Marco Schnabel, and the folks at Paramount undervalued the public -- the movie lost money in the tens of millions.
