The Love Guru (2008) - Mike Myers, Jessica Alba

Source: DVD (Kota Damansara)

Excellent casting with ...
Mike Myers - Guru Pitka / Young Pitka / Teenage Pitka / Himself
Jessica Alba - Jane Bullard, owner of the Toronto Maple Leafs
Justin Timberlake - Jacques Grande
Verne Troyer ... Coach Punch Cherkov (Yes, it's Austin Powers nemesis Mini Me)
Ben Kingsley ... Guru Tugginmypudha and,
Rajneesh or the Guru's sidekick is played by Manu Narayan

One of those films which you will either LOVE or despise ... I am with the LOVE clan! Haha.. Check out the diverse set of storylines in this Mike "Saturday Night Live / Waynes World" Myers film...
1) Darren Roanoke (played by Romany Malco) has issues with his mother, but is required by his Toronto Maple Leafs team to win the Stanley Cup
2) Darren's wife, Prudence Roanoke (played vy Meagan Good) left him for Justin Timberlake's Jacques "Le Coq" Grandé. Check out his ... member!
3) Jane Bullard (Jessica Alba) gets the support of the Guru Maurice Pitka (Mike Myers) to help Darren with his pyscho-issues, hmm.. will they fall in love?
4) Will Guru Pitka be invited to appear on Oprah Winfrey's show?
5) Will Guru Pitka become The Guru, with #1 place currently held by Deepak Chopra.
6) Guru Pitka has a chastity belt put on by Guru Tugginmypudha (Haha, it's Ben Kingsley!!), how will this be removed?

Yes, look closely, it's Justin Timberlake!

ps. I loved the soundtrack as well ... Here are just a few of the memorable songs:-
Brimful of Asha (Norman Cook mix) - Cornershop
More Than Words - Extreme (Mike Myers and Manu Narayan does a cover of this)
C'est La Vie - Robbie Nevil
I Drove All Night - Celine Dion (singing Heart's iconic song)
