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.
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
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.
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...
This film could have been so bad, but the director/priducer have injected fresh life into old physical comedy...the prime example being where Sandler swims like a porpoise through the ocean...brilliant! That scene could have made me groan with embarassment but clever use of etchnology made it look so outrageous that it was impossible not to laugh.
The pacing of the film is just right and even the scenes with little to no action are well enough scripted to provide a natural break.
Sit back and enjoy a comedy that doesnt take itself seriously one bit!
