the guru

this movie is basically silly fluff. but the flashy costumes are nice. and the singing and dancing. and the pornography film-making. but heather graham cannot act. do not be deceived by her sexy body. she is a horrible actress. HORRIBLE. i cannot stress this enough.

one of the nice transitions in the movie went from when ramu is leaving india and arrives in america. india=color, life, elephants in the street! new york=really, really grey. it was a good juxtaposition. it was really the only interesting facet to the cinematography.

it could have used more singing. it could have used more dancing. but what are you going to do. it was still fun. and funny. even without the dancing indian turkeys.

heather graham is terrible. and she isn't even that hot. you know you have problems as an actress when you can't even pull off Austin Powers II.

and don't get me started on that "American Woman" video. that's one of the worst things ever committed to film. you have lenny kravitz, one of the great talentless hacks of our time, completely misinterpreting a venerable canajun song, and trying to sex it up by having a bony, vapid "actress" rub her crotch on the top of a winnebago for two and a half minutes. who thought this was a good idea?
