With his latest comedy film "", Myers is trying to once again reach another box office success. But, it seems that this time, the good karma may not stay by his side.
Expecting a better Myers film for the follow-up to his other great movies, including "Wayne's World" and "Austin Powers", most of movie critics came out with harsh reviews on the new comedy. With only 2 out of 13 critics hailed it to be a fresh one, "Love Guru" looks like ought to be satisfied with the 15% rating given by Rotten Tomatoes. Stating his opinion about the star-studded movie, Variety's Brian Lowry noted that it "doesn't provide any grand insights about self-actualization" and worse it only offers "bathroom jokes, sixth-grade puns and silly songs". On the same degrading tone, another top critic Kirk Honeycutt of Hollywood Reporter slammed it with comment that "Not only does the film stumble badly from one skit to another, the skits themselves have too much dead air."
