The third movie in my Punish-Myself-Binge may just be the worst of the three, which is saying something considering I watched Twilight and The Last Airbender.
The Love Guru was up next and it is absolutely one of the most unfunny, obnoxious, downright offensive movie I have ever seen. It was at 14% on Rotten Tomatoes, which is actually higher than I thought it would be. Truthfully, even the audience score was low, down at 33%.
And I really like Mike Myers. I have always enjoyed him. I loved him as Tommy Maitland, the host of The new Gong Show as well as other of his films. This thing though… it is atrocious.
There are quality actors in this train wreck too. It is one of those movies that make you wonder why they would take a chance with their careers being involved in this piece of garbage. For God’s sake, Stephen Colbert and John Oliver, who are absolutely magnificent normally and who I love, are in this film and they can’t even pull this from the crapper.
This is up there with the absolute worst films I have ever seen. It is Movie 43, Batman & Robin, Holmes & Watson bad.
I am really struggling to get through this binge. This thing is just a total waste of time and, despite being quarantined, I can think of 100 things to do better with my time than watching The Love Guru.
Maybe the whole Punish-Myself-Binge was a bad idea. However, perhaps the next one will be better. IT HAS TO BE!
