While my kids probably would have preferred to have the Hulk Smash hands that Erik got this week, they were temporarily jazzed with this week's cool swag: The Love Guru Magic 8-Ball! He's groovy! He looks like a molded plastic Jesus, only with a Madonna-esque birthmark and an unfortunate discount eyebrow-waxing job! He wears flowers and love beads!
And he answers all your deepest life questions with such sage responses as "Yo Momma," "The Only Way Out is In," and "Touch the Holiness."
Based on the trailers I've seen so far, I'm not sure what I think about this movie. Could be it'll surprise the naysayers and be really funny ala Austin Powers, could be it's going to be one of the worst movies of the year. But hey, half the fun is in the surprise of finding out which way it's gonna play, right? Anyone? Anyone?
I asked the Love Guru himself whether I should chance going to see his movie.
His response? "Don't Do It Alone." No, I'm not just making that up ... you can see the picture yourself. If I was going to make something up for the Guru to say, it would be way funnier than that.
In fact, I have no doubt that you, oh clever Cinematical readers, could come up with some brilliantly pithy things for the Love Guru Magic 8-Ball to say in response to the question: "Should I spend $10 to see this film?" What do you think his answer should be?
