Product Description

Comedy superstar Adam Sandler is back - and funnier than ever - as The Zohan, the finest counterterrorist agent the Israeli army has. That is, until he fakes his death and travels to Manhattan to live his dream...as a hairdresser. Now this skilled fighting machine who used to clip bad guys is out to prove he can make the cut as a top stylist. All goes silky smooth until his cover is blown when he's recognized by a Palestinian cab driver (Rob Schneider). Now, The Zohan must fight to live a peaceful new life in New York in this razor-sharp action-packed comedy from Adam Sandler, Robert Smigel, Judd Apatow and Dennis Dugan.

Amazon.com

If You Don't Mess with the Zohan feels like an extended and crazed sketch from Saturday Night Live, there are reasons for that. Zohan's star and SNL alumnus Adam Sandler is joined by several fellow cast members (in uncredited cameo roles) from his years on the NBC show. But Sandler also co-wrote the film's absurdist script with SNL veteran writer and sometime-performer Robert Smigel. Echoes of a few of their classic skits on the show--built around high-strung Israeli characters obsessed with disco and selling junk electronics out of a New York shop--are in revisited in Zohan and are a lot of fun to see again. Zohan is unbridled nonsense thrown at the wall, but with a sunny disposition that proves surprisingly persuasive. Sandler stars as an Israeli intelligence operative who fakes his death to reinvent himself in New York City as a hairdresser. Putting the lie to assumptions that any man in that professional field must be gay, Zohan routinely provides raucous sexual favors for all of his older female customers. The sight of bottles of gels and hairsprays falling off shelves while the indefatigable Zohan pleasures randy grannies on the other side of a salon wall is pure SNL, and is funnier than it might sound. The silly story involves an old, Palestinian enemy of Zohan, the Phantom (John Turturro), showing up in Manhattan, but everything is really leading to a Big Apple version of the resolution of Israeli-Palestinian conflicts we'd all like to see on a large scale. The film is almost instantly forgettable, and there are many times it veers toward the dumb, but it also sells itself well as a nutty concept. --Tom Keogh

Sandler goes back to his juvenile roots with this one. That is not a bad thing in my book, I find Billy Madison and Happy Gilmore a riot. In this movie, Sandler plays Zohan. Zohan is a tough as nails Israeli intelligence operative who fakes his death because he is sick of all the violence in the Middle East. He goes to America to become a hair dresser because he wants everyone to have silky smooth hair. Not every joke works, but the silly situations come fast and furious. If one doesn't get you, then maybe the next one will. Yes it is pretty stupid and juvenile stuff, but I found most of the movie amusing. If you like his first movies, then this one is for you.

If you were ever a fan of blazing saddles like I am, then you'd see the value in this movie a lot clearer. Blazing saddles used humor to tackle a situation of racism in america that was a major issue that everyone just tiptoed around because everyone was so scared of offending others, but Blazing saddles took racism and punched it in the nose with humor. You don't mess with the Zohan is an exceptional film with slapstick humor all throughout delivered in the same manner that Blazing Saddles delivered. It managed to take the middle east conflict and all the racism and hatred that is there hit it square in the nose, sure there was plenty of stuff some might deem as "Offensive" but I was never a fan of political correctness, it censors us and brings us to a point where free speech is taken away. I salute you Adam Sandler, you made a funny movie, and you managed to tackle a much bigger issue in the process. This movie was art, if people can't appreciate it, then they need to open up their minds some.

Well, clearly, not everyone has the same sense of humor. You've got to walk Disbelief right out the door with "You don't mess with Zohan," but if you just need a fun summer flick and you have a very bent sense of humor, this could be it.

Story in a nutshell: Zohan (Sandler) is tired of the Israeli Army. He busts it to capture a terrorist, the Phantom (John Turturro) and the government merely trades the Phantom back. So--when his next opportunity to go up against his arch nemesis comes up, Zohan stages his own death and comes to America to become a hairdresser. He ends up falling for a Palestinian girl, Dalia (Emmanuelle Chriqui) and realizing there are worse things than his original enemies.

The humor's just as juvenile as you would expect, but if you need a good, hard laugh--and you don't mind gross, this is it. Be warned, you will never look the same way at hummus again!

OK - this is definitely not the greatest comedy movie ever made - but it probably qualifies as the finest comedic film based on the amazing story of an incredibly intrepid, fierce and fearless (was that redundant?) Israeli-Defense-Force commando who secretly dreams of becoming a rich & famous hair stylist in the treacherous War-torn jungle wasteland affectionately known as 'America'!
And in loving homage to that other Legendary (take-no-prisoners) IDF commando Mel Brooks = this film stealthily maneuvers 180 degrees away-from any semblance of 'political correctness' (Bill Maher would be proud!)

I am not the World's biggest Adam Sandler fan (please don't tell that to 'Krav Maga' master-Zohan) - but he's very good/funny in this film! Zohan really comes across as an amalgamation of Rambo + Maxwell Smart* (a surprisingly effective combination!)
And the supporting players are fantastic = particularly the always eccentrically brilliant John Turturro as 'the Phantom' (Zohan's nemesis) and Emmanuelle Chriqui as Dalia (Zohan's Love interest, and number-one supplier of thirst-quenching "Fizzy Bubblech") and the Great Michael Buffer (hero to Boxing fans everywhere!) makes brief but hilarious appearances.

In the Best Spirit of politically-incorrect Mel Brooks approved/certified Comedy ==> sit back and just let yourself enjoy this (but seriously, the Fizzy-Bubblech probably wouldn't hurt!)

note*: of course, fearlessly intrepid, fierce & formidable (and of course funny) Mel Brooks created 'Get Smart' in the swinging-1960's!

Fun Fact = did you know that the popular product 'SodaStream' (the machine that makes carbonated drinks at home) is actually manufactured by a company based in Israel ==> now I know where to get that endless supply of 'Fizzy-Bubblech'!!! (seriously, they should market this as a real flavor - I would definitely buy it!)

This is one of Adam Sandler's better films, but it suffers because Mr. Sandler insists on throwing in what seem to be trademarks for his characters these days (i.e. bedding anything with breasts, making disgusting jokes.) One nice difference was that, rather than having a brief cameo with a single line, Rob Schneider actually had a significant supporting role and he was funny...dare I say, funnier than Sandler. I liked the scene with him driving a cab while on the phone...easily my favorite scene. Sure, the ending had its corny moments, but they remained somewhat unexpected as is typical of an Adam Sandler film. If you can get past the Sandler trademarks previously described, then this is an interesting film that takes a weird look at the Israel/Palestine division. While real life could never be resolved as easily as this film accomplished it, but it's sometimes nice to see such an easy resolution, even if just for a little while. It's a fun film to watch. Enjoy.
