 His karma is huge.

The Love Guru is a 2008 Comedy Tropes Film and the first major live action big-screen performance from Mike Myers since the Austin Powers trilogy. It's the story of an American-born but Indian-raised self-help guru named Guru Pitka, whose dream is to surpass the famous Deepak Chopra as North America's number-one, go-to self-help guru. To do this, he attempts to help hockey player Darren Roanoke, who has been severely shaken since his wife left him for a well-endowed rival, regain his confidence before the big game.

It also featured prominent performances from Jessica Alba, Justin Timberlake (as the aforementioned rival), Verne Troyer, Stephen Colbert and even Sir Ben Kingsley, but none of it spared this largely scatological comedy from being condemned by both audiences and critics. Despite expectations that the film would revive Myers' career -- he hadn't toplined a live-action film since 2003's The Cat in the Hat -- it became one of 2008's biggest flops and nominated for a whopping seven Razzies. It won three, for Worst Picture, Worst Actor, and Worst Screenplay.


Tropes:

 Guru Pitka: Rajneesh, I'd like an alligator soup, and make it snappy! Because alligators are snappy, and at the same time, I want it prompt. (grins)

Coach Cherkoff: and Pitka! Maurice Pitka/Love Guru:(excitedly) yes? Coach Cherkoff: What's the capital of thailand? Pitka: Bangkok?(shrugs) Coach Cherkoff: Exactly! Cherkoff punches Pitka in crotch, Pitka instantly covers himself and hunches over moaning while Jane gasps and the team groans in sympathy next he is doubled over grabbing himself and he exclaims " Omar Shariff MY BALLS!" and moans then drops to the floor and cries "my BALLS" you prick then mumbles the f word and Cherkoff tells him "stay down bitch"

Pitka is shown hitting himself in the groin with a mallet The dinner scene- he reacts as if it's his nuts being smashed and dipped in hot water. He moans A-I-E-O-U then exclaims Geronimo which is the safe word for his assistant to stop.
