But Guru Pitka makes no sense—one minute he's a cretinous dolt who's never seen a corn dog before, the next he's delivering double entendres with a clever wink. He swings between vainglory and ravenous insecurity in a way that seems uncomfortably autobiographical.Because we all know that (butterphobic) Mike Myers is a dick, the movie sucks in a way that reflects his dickishness.
I'm not saying that the movie's not bad, I'm saying that the ew piece seems calculated - why the sudden hate for Mike Myers. But wait, maybe's it's not all about his character flaws, says Ebert:
Myers is a nice man and has made some funny movies, but this film could have been written on toilet walls by callow adolescents. Every reference to a human sex organ or process of defecation is not automatically funny simply because it is naughty, but Myers seems to labour under that delusion.So he's delusional, but a nice man. Of course, this fat fuck liked The Phantom Menace, so his judgment's questionable.
