"The Love Guru" - Staring Mike Myers - Coming to theaters June 20th
Starring: Mike Myers, Jessica Alba, Romany Malco, Verne Troyer and Justin Timberlake.
Directed by: Marco Schnabel.
PG-13 for crude and sexual content throughout, language, some comic violence and drug references
Myers plays an American who was raised by gurus in an ashram in India.
He grows up in the village HARENMAHKEESTER (omg - LOL! - the guy's a genius -- I just have to look at him and I fall to pieces)
As an adult, he moves back to his home country and tries to set himself up as a self-help expert.
Myers Said the film is a reflection of the spiritual journey he went on after his father died in 1991. Development of the film began in 2001, during the last day of filming on Austin Powers in Goldmember: Myers heard George Harrison had died. He then received a letter from Harrison, and Myers thought, "'OK, universe, I think I get it. This is the movie you want me to make.'"
Some Hindus have expressed worry about how Hindus are portrayed and if the content will be disrespectful to their culture: Rajan Zed, a Hindu leader from Nevada, demanded that Paramount Pictures screen the film for members of the Hindu community before it is released in June. Based on the movie's trailer and MySpace page, Zed says "The Love Guru" "appears to be lampooning Hinduism and Hindus" and uses sacred terms frivolously.
"People are not very well-versed in Hinduism, so this might be their only exposure," he told The Associated Press. "They will have an image in their minds of stereotypes. They will think most of us are like that."

The soundtrack features some pretty good remixes - Myers sings "The Joker" (A MIDNIGHT TOKER!!- LOL!)

Also on the soundtrack is one of my favorite tunes from the 80's:
C'est La Vie - Robbie Nevil
and Celine Dion sings her version of I Drove All Night
