The plot of comedian Mike Myers' newest comedy, The Love Guru, apparently revolves around the Toronto Maple Leafs of the NHL. In fact, in the months preceding the release of the film, the NHL proudly boasted how it "provided Myers and Paramount Pictures unprecedented access and rights."
Since then, however, the NHL has changed its tune.
"The Love Guru? I don't know what you're talking about," said NHL commissioner Gary Bettman.
"Get out of my face," he added, while kicking our reporter in the balls.
It is complete mystery as to why the NHL has denied its affiliation with The Love Guru. The NHL, after all, is North America's poorest professional sports league. This is a publicity opportunity that the Arena Football League can only dream of.
"There are always movies being made about football and baseball - even basketball - but this is one of the only hockey movies I can think of. It's unfortunate that the NHL isn't letting The Love Guru do what Space Jam did for the NBA," said Toronto Star movie critic Peter Howell.
In the mean time, The Love Guru has completely dropped out of the box office top ten. It has only been 3 days since being released. Go see it soon before you miss the opportunity!
