  • Before making a single edit, Tropedia EXPECTS our site policy and manual of style to be followed. Failure to do so may result in deletion of contributions and blocks of users who refuse to learn to do so. Our policies can be reviewed here.
  • All images MUST now have proper attribution, those who neglect to assign at least the "fair use" licensing to an image may have it deleted. All new pages should use the preloadable templates feature on the edit page to add the appropriate basic page markup. Pages that don't do this will be subject to deletion, with or without explanation.
  • All new trope pages will be made with the "Trope Workshop" found on the "Troper Tools" menu and worked on until they have at least three examples. The Trope workshop specific templates can then be removed and it will be regarded as a regular trope page after being moved to the Main namespace. THIS SHOULD BE WORKING NOW, REPORT ANY ISSUES TO Janna2000, SelfCloak or RRabbit42. DON'T MAKE PAGES MANUALLY UNLESS A TEMPLATE IS BROKEN, AND REPORT IT THAT IS THE CASE. PAGES WILL BE DELETED OTHERWISE IF THEY ARE MISSING BASIC MARKUP.

 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.

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.
