DVD: The Love Guru (12)

Guru Pitka (Mike Myers) is the world's second-best guru, but when he's asked by the owner of an ice hockey team (Jessica Alba) to reunite their star player (Romany Marco) with his estranged wife (Meagan Good), he sees the chance to become No 1 and achieve his ambition to appear on Oprah. What results isn't a patch on the Austin Powers films. Even if jokes about erections, dwarfs and faeces might have you chuckling, you're still likely to find this too low-brow. Justin Timberlake's French goalie Jacques "Le Coq" Grande has his moments, but Sir Ben Kingsley should be embarrassed. Even at 85 minutes, it's a chore – and you're a masochist if you stay around for the deleted scenes to see what didn't make the grade.

DVD: The Love Guru, Retail & Rental, (Paramount)

The frustrating thing about 'The Love Guru' is is that Mike Myers still has expert comic timing, but he's shelved almost every form of humour except sniggering references to genitalia, flatulence and most varieties of bodily fluid: it's perhaps inevitable that the film climaxes with a pair of rutting elephants.

Do ya think I'm stylish? Rod Stewart launches his own range of clothing

Platinum rooster hair, leopard skin leggings and spandex silver vests were just some of the fashion atrocities committed by Rod Stewart, as he strutted his way through the nation's consciousness during the 1970s and 1980s. One of his most popular songs was entitled "You Wear It Well". But many would say Rod, generally, didn't. So perhaps it comes as something of a surprise that, deep into the 21st century, the Anglo-Scottish singer has decided to launch his own clothing range.
