Love Guru preview

    Mike Meyers’ comedic penchant for accents, Maxim cover
    co-stars and palpable punch lines your parents will laugh at define many of his
    films, including summer comedy “The Love Guru.” Brandishing a celebrity cast of
    actors/pop-culture polymaths Jessica Alba and Justin Timberlake as well as a
    plethora of cameos (another Mike Meyers trend) the film will undoubtedly make
    playful jokes about the “Kama Sutra,” Ryan Seacrest and anything else you would
    have found mildly witty before you saw your first Judd Apatow movie.

    But the film’s target audience isn’t the ribald
    post-Chappelle sensibilities of the young adult generation (despite Meyers’
    strategic hosting of the 2008 MTV awards) as much as it is the whole family.
    Coupled with a highly predictable plot that isn’t really even worth explaining,
    let’s just hope you forgot how bad the jokes were in “Austin Powers:
    Goldmember” — that way when you hear them again in “The Love Guru” they won’t
    seem as blatantly overdone. June 20.
