Product Description

Goofball comedy, that generated some controversy on its initial release, starring Adam Sandler as Zohan Dvir, an Israeli Special Forces soldier who fakes his own death so he can reinvent himself as a hairdresser in New York. He throws himself into his new identity with admirable gusto, romancing his clients by performing 'special services' in the back room - but is eventually recognised and must face losing his newfound life and career. Emmanuelle Chriqui and John Turturro co-star.

From Amazon.co.uk

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 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 favours for all his older female customers. The sight of bottles of gels and hairsprays falling off shelves while the indefatigable Zohan pleasures frisky grannies 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

How do you milk comedy out of the Arab/Israeli tensions??? It's a bizarre subject to tackle, and risks being highly offensive to both sides due to the carnage that's been endured over decades.
As a result, Adam Sandler chooses to almost literally sit on the fence, having his Israeli superspy Zohan fall for a nice Arab girl so that our heroes have a cross-cultural Romeo & Juliet style forbidden romance going on. But with far cruder jokes.
Sandler's Zohan is a very likeable creation, a charming guy who just happens to be a whizz as Israel's top counter-terrorist operative, but who just wants to be a hairdresser. It's when this revelation comes out that he finally decides to up sticks and emigrate to the US, finding great humour in the culture clash, and Zohan's rampant sexuality in an industry where his main competitors are all gay. To his credit this is never milked in an offensive way but is genuinely funny, as are his ludicrous business practices and bad personal style. Comedy is even effectively wrung from the determination of his old Arab nemesis to hunt him down and finish their fued.
If there's one criticism to be levelled at 'Zohan', it's that it treads a little TOO carefully sometimes. In the American set part of the film, you won't hear either Arab or Israeli lament the tension between their countries with the phrase "There's been so much hate!" without immediately adding the line "On both sides!". To a degree this is admirable, and it's very much a film about bringing the two sides together, but not at the expense of the comedy. The humour does get dampened down towards the climax when it risks becoming politically dodgy, but for the rest of the film Sandler manages to make it a very funny and sweet natured movie. An enjoyable film with very likeable characters.

This is totally sababa (do your homework!!).
Those who review it as 'rediculous' should at least be able to spell.....
A totally feel good movie ("disco disco"!!) which has the guts to at least try and make some humour out of the whole sorry lets-fight-to-the-death middle east situation. No mean feat in my humble opinion. Lighten up, you critics. This was fun from beginning to end. Hummus rules OK!!X

Zohan works as a Special Agent and lives with his orthodox parents in Israel.

He wants to give up this life full of dangerous encounters with Palestinians. While in the process of apprehending a Palestinian activist known simply as the Phantom, he fakes his death, hides in a plane bound for New York, and decides to try his hand as a hair-stylist.

He is refused employment initially, but when he offers to work for free, Dahlia hires him as a cleaner. When a hair-stylist quits, Zohan replaces her, winning over elderly female clients, and falling in love with Dahlia herself.

Dahlia's landlord, Walbridge, who has been raising rents regularly, hires skinhead to terrorise the neighbourhood, create misunderstandings between cultures, and drive them out, so as to enable him to construct a new building.....

Yes the film is completely insane, but it's still one of Sandlers funniest movies.

This is because, it's so original, and the sight gags are rife throughout.Sometimes o stupid, you cannot help bu wonder if this man is a genius, or a true loon.

The culture references are on the safe side of offensive, and Sandler plays his wild card by bringing all cultures together at the climax to make everything happy, happy, happy.

And just when you thought things couldn't go anymore bizarre, Mariah Carey pops up as her self, and puts her best performance ever in this.

It raises the laughs because of its over ambitious narrative, but you know you secretly laugh when this is on.

If you are depressed (and explanaition that there are people on the world who are worse off than me doesn't work), if you had a hard day or if you simply want to laugh please watch 'You Don't Mess With the Zohan'.
It is very light film which is full of funny scenes (most of them are not fart jokes). I do undertsand that some people might be taken off because of the picture of the ethnic conflict between Israelis and Palestinians but please do not make to much fuss about it as this film has, you may laugh or not, a message for peace between these two nations. It is Hollywood style made of course but this film is made in USA and that's how they do it.
Anyway - if you want to relax yourself with something that is not going to involve your brain for too much - Zohan awaits... Disco disco...

YOU DONT MESS WITH THE ZOHAN is one of the funniest and most rediculous comedies of the century! Adam Sandler is amazing as a kind of superhero-hair designer! You'll laugh yourself silly with this as there is literally a joke in every sentence! I dont know how they managed to think of so many and manage to fit a storyline in as well! The ending is action-packed, slapstick-filled and hilarious which is just what comedy endings need! You absolutely have to see this as you'll have a hell of a time! 10/10!

Adam Sandler stars as Zohan Dvir, an Israeli Counter Terrorist who escapes Israel to become a hair stylist in New York. Zohan is possibly the strongest person on the planet, quickest swimmer on the planet and quickest drinker in the world and he really will blow you away - literally!!! You dont mess with the Zohan is better than most of Sandler's other work such as The Longest Yard and Mr Deeds but not as good as Grown Ups and Happy Gilmore. BUY IT NOW!!!
