The good news is that The Love Guru has grossed only $18.6 million dollars so far. It's getting its ass kicked by pretty much everything out there. The bad news is that its grossed $18.6 million dollars so far. That means that approximately 2.6 million of you have paid to see Mike Myers not be funny again. That means there are 2.6 million enabling asshats out there. When you spend your money on a Mike Myers movie, you are telling the studios that there should be more of them...and that's just not true.
I forgive the Austin Powers movies. I hated the one I saw and thought the character was just irredeemably creepy, but hey, it was somewhat original and I can see where some people might have thought they were funny. Guess what? Even Mike Myers knows this thing is a stinking steaming pile of shit. Guess what the only thing is that he has to say when he's out plugging the thing? He steeples his hands and gives the fake blessing "Mariska Hargitay". Yeah, that was almost funny once. Shut Up!
Mike Myers should be put in a sound-proofed room and only brought out when they need his voice for another Shrek movie. And those of you telling the studios we need more of his crap should be locked in a room showing The Love Guru over and over and over and over again.
If any UCFers shelled out to see this thing, please don't tell me. I'm not sure I'd respect you in the morning.
