Pitka (Mike Myers) is the self-titled "Love Guru," an American raised in India who has returned to his homeland to peddle spiritual self-help. When his advice results in the marriage break-up and subsequent professional slump of Toronto Maple Leafs star Darren Roanoke (Romany Malco), as well as a dating disaster for L.A. Kings player Jacques Grande (Justin Timberlake), the fate of the Stanley Cup is suddenly in jeopardy. Get the movie review and more. »

How We Determine Our Grades

After watching a movie with your children or students, we encourage parents and teachers to look for education opportunities to teach with movies. Here are a few discussion topics that can help with lesson plans or teaching in the home.

Why do you think individuals and corporations are turning to spiritual advisors for guidance? Do you think these methods can have long-term benefits?

When a movie or other art form creates a farcical rendition of an actual situation, do you think it is always criticizing it in a negative way? Is it possible to make a farce of something and leave a positive statement with the audience? Why do you think farces are such a popular way of critiquing our society?
