  WSR Narrative Review
Story Synopsis:
Guru Pitka (Myers), known to his followers as The Love Guru, wants nothing more than to be the world's number-one neo-eastern self-help spiritualist, after consistently coming second in popularity polls to Deepak Chopra (played by himself). Now, in order to secure an appearance on The Oprah Winfrey Show, Guru Pitka takes on the challenge of repairing the marriage of Darren Roanoke (Malco), star player of the Toronto Maple Leafs. It seems that ever since Darren left his wife Prudence (Good) and she began dating Jacques "Le Coq" Grande (Timberlake), a well-endowed rival hockey player for the L.A. Kings, his game has completely gone to pot. It is up to Guru Pitka to get Darren's love life back on track in time for the Stanley Cup play-offs. (Stacey Pendry)
