It’s amazing. His Indian accent and his English accent are indistinguishable from each other.

……this just about clinches it. I’m going to wrap myself in old episodes of Davison’s Doctor Who and I’m not coming out for a while.

Oh, lord, I didn’t know you were serious until I found the link at the bottom of the article. I just thought you were being funny and witty. And now… all of a sudden it’s not so funny. Wow.

Oh my. It looks terrible without sound. I fear watching it with sound.

But see, the studio is screening the movie for Hindi leaders before its release! That means they’re totally sensitive.

To Scott,

It’s even worse with sound.

I listened to the trailer with sound and I must admit I laughed.

I laughed because, like Verne Troyer, I too have wanted to call Mike Myers a jackass.

… what the hell?

I -know- this movie’s already been released before. I don’t remember who’s in it but I’m 99.9% sure this is a rehash of a movie I saw at my local rental place a year ago! This is driving me nuts!

I laughed at the trailer and I feel no shame.

I loves me some little people jokes, I guess.

Wait a minute. The Toronto Maple Leafs WIN the Stanley Cup?!? Now I know this must be a comedy.

I love these things. Can’t wait for the next installment.

I wasn’t gonna watch it, but the idea of the enormous feathery pet intrigues me.

Also, the giant cock.

God damn it. I thought that entire dialogue was a joke!

I didn’t think they would actually do it.

These are never jokes. Either MKG can see the future, or he finds out about these movies and passes that knowledge on to us. Go back through the other installments. He’s been right on the money every time (unfortunately).
On another note, I feel bad for #3. Seems to me he and Bigwig are the smartest people in the room and he’ll wind up with bigwig’s job. Just imagining Bigwig used to be in the same position as #3 and became “corporate” after getting the job.

Oh. My. God. You were serious?

Just when I think I’ve seen the lowest possible denominator come out of Hollywood, they break out the shovels and keep digging.

Kitsune Sniper is right; it sounds, title-wise, very much similar to The Guru, a Bollywood-ish flick from 2002. Seems a bit enough of the plot is different, though?

This movie makes things like the Guru okay.

The Guru is honestly not a bad little movie; slight in scope, to be sure, but it’s got heart and a few decent performances, plus a good musical-number ending, not least because it goes the farcical route and takes the whole setup as seriously as possible to make things funnier.

The Love Guru is going to be ninety-plus minutes of Mike Myers mugging at the camera. I trust the difference is apparent.

Okay, but not even this process can explain how Meet the Spartans got made.

That trailer fell apart in the last 20 seconds. I was going, “Seriously? Okay then.”

The entire time I was reading this, I just kept thinking “there’s no way this is real.” Then you linked it and my world fell apart.

I’m sad that I knew the entire time that it was real, though at the beginning I wondered if Canada had a different title.

I just tried to find the previous Explaining Hollywood posts, and I got to two… but three is missing! (I think this series is big enough now that it’s worth giving them a tag – they’re certainly good enough).

This premise is suspiciously like that of “Nacho Libre” – “Overweight American Comedian Makes A Movie About Being Racist About A Minority Using A Sport”.

You should do more of these, man. Compiled, they would make a fantastic bestseller.

Eeep. At least two people had to think this was a good idea. Why is anyone trusting them with money?

This would have been a lot funnier to someone if I hadn’t known about this grotesquery already. My father, leader in the bad-taste-ahead-of-time-but-repentant-later Olympics, thinks this will be okay.

Love your blog and this is really my first comment. While reading that entire schtick I was completely under the impression that this was simply an exercise in pointing how over-the-top ridiculous Hollywood can be. I mean seriously at no point during that entire script did I think to myself, “He is talking about an actual movie”. Then I saw the link and my eyes started gushing blood.

I mean, COME ON!
