When the funniest thing in the trailer for your new comedy movie is Justin Timberlake impersonating Bruce Lee while wearing only tight briefs, I’m not sure if that’s a good thing or a bad thing. But anyways, Timberlake co-stars in Mike Myers’ new comedy, “The Love Guru”, the trailer for which you can see below. Eh, maybe funny, maybe not.
Pitka (Mike Myers) is an American who was left at the gates of an ashram in India as a child and raised by gurus. He moves back to the U.S. to seek fame and fortune in the world of self-help and spirituality. His unorthodox methods are put to the test when he must settle a rift between Toronto Maple Leafs star hockey player Darren Roanoke (Romany Malco) and his estranged wife. After the split, Roanoke’s wife starts dating L.A. Kings star Jacques Grande (Justin Timberlake) out of revenge, sending her husband into a major professional skid – to the horror of the teams’ owner Jane Bullard (Jessica Alba) and Coach Cherkov (Verne Troyer). Pitka must return the couple to marital nirvana and get Roanoke back on his game so the team can break the 40-year-old “Bullard Curse” and win the Stanley Cup.
Starring Mike Myers, Jessica Alba, Romany Malco, Verne Troyer, Justin Timberlake, Ben Kingsley, Meagan Good, and directed By Marco Schnabel.
