You Don't Mess With the Zohan
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.
Reviews 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
