When The Love Guru opened in America earlier this summer, Hindu leaders were not amused by Mike Myers's mockery of their spiritual leaders, and they called for a boycott of the film. In truth, no-one will be amused by this crass and humourless tale of self-empowerment, which bookends lack lustre comic vignettes with Bollywood-style song and dance performances of 9 To 5, More Than Words and The Joker by the Steve Miller Band. Marco Schnabel's film isn't mean-spirited, it's just...
