  1. Bright dialogue and finely embroidered performances adorn The Guru like festive beading on a pair of made-in-India bedroom slippers.
  2. 70
    Delightful screwball comedy.
  3. Hits more laughs than it misses and its characters are likable, empathetic people.
  4. Offers precious little inspiration, and the only irony it manages is surely unintended.
  5. 40
    The jabs at the expense of self-centered New Yorkers with more money than sense are so mild they're pointless -- if satire doesn't hurt, what's the point?
  6. Reviewed by: Derek Elley
    40
    A generally entertaining but rather old-fashioned romantic comedy.
  7. Here is a truly unfunny comedy from Universal Studios, which seems determined to prove that Hollywood can be opportunistic and clueless at the same time.
