This morning, I caught the opening chat fest on Regis and Kelly. If I see nothing else on the show (when I am able) this is it; many times the guests do not interest me. However, I love the chemistry between the hosts. Bantering, poking fun, reporting on the headlines, etc. Also the trivia contest in which a caller selected at random attempts to answer a question about a previous show in order to win a fantastic trip. Today’s question: “In which 2008 movie did Sir Ben Kingsley co-star with Mike Myers.” It took me nearly the full 20 seconds to come up with the answer, unfortunately for Christine Neves from Cumberland, IN, she could not come up with the correct answer to win her stay in Gren-ah-da/Gren-A-da (however you pronounce it).
I won’t even go into the details of The Love Guru only by saying that I have heard many poor unfortunate souls who have seen it and have said that they wished that they could have gotten not only their money but also their time refunded. I’m not sure but I think Mike Myers has gone the way of Eddie Murphy who has also added to his list of stinkers this year. Anyone remember Meet Dave? That’s ok, I don’t either; I think it lasted a minute or two in theatres. I’m not sure if even Austin Powers or Shrek can resurrect Myers’ movie career.
