To Razzie The Love Guru You Have To Have Seen The Love Guru
It’s being reported this morning that Mike Myers’s The Love Guru has received the most nominations at this year’s Razzie Awards. From the AP:
Myers’ comedy flop “The Love Guru” led the field Wednesday for the Razzies with seven nominations, among them worst picture and worst-acting slots for Myers, Jessica Alba, Verne Troyer and Academy Award winner Ben Kingsley.
The number of nominations for “Love Guru” was appropriate given what a personal project it was for Myers, who not only starred but also co-wrote and produced the movie, said John Wilson, founder of the Razzies, an Oscar spoof that dishes out “dis-honors” for the lousiest stuff Hollywood dredged up the previous year.
Normally, I am of the opinion that the Associated Press, a news organization established primarily as an information resource, should refrain from editorializing on its subjects. In this case, though, I agree that the number of nominations for The Love Guru was “appropriate.”
