Guru Pitka (Myers), an American raised in an Indian ashram, becomes the world's number two guru, second only to real-life romantic mystic and on-screen buddy Deepak Chopra. Things get nutty after the owner of the Toronto Maple Leafs (Alba) hires Pitka to reignite the flame between a hockey star and his estranged wife. Pitka has to deal with the team's dwarf coach (Troyer back for more Mini-Me jabs), fight off enemies using urine-soaked mops (his specialty, kid you not), and ham it up in lame music video spoofs. Myers spends the entire movie cackling at his own dopey wisecracks, thinking it'll somehow make them funny. It doesn't.

The Toronto Maple Leafs haven't won the Stanley Cup since 1967, but I say for everyone who hasn't watched this atrocity that this film will be a larger curse on them than not winning the Cup. It is THAT bad...the only way it could have been worse is if they had Uwe Boll direct it. That's how bad it is.
