Why Is The Love Guru Rated PG-13?
This film about an Indian guru who determines to reunite an estranged wife with her hockey-playing husband dwells on sexual and scatological-based humor in virtually every scene. A summary of what to expect includes dozens of jokes and visualizations referring to male anatomy, sexual preferences, animal sex and masturbation. Some of these, along with other setups, are also somewhat violent. In one incident, a man is thrown through a window and later extracts a large piece of blood-covered glass from his forehead. Another man battles with a rooster, and is later seen covered in blood and feathers and holding the dead bird. Demeaning remarks are made toward various characters, and people from a Hindu background may find the theme itself offensive. Language includes various crude anatomical references, double-entendres, moderate and mild profanities, terms of deity, and a single use of a sexual hand gesture. Social drinking is depicted and a man is seen smoking substance through a water pipe that is inferred to be a recreational drug.
