You Don’t Mess with the Zohan is Adam Sandler’s latest version of the same movie he’s been making for ages now, except this time instead of being a golfer, millionaire, or waterboy who has a growth experience during his quest for happiness, he’s a nearly invincible Israeli soldier who wants to be a hair dresser…who has a growth experience during his quest for happiness. As expected, the usuals like Rob Schneider and John Turturro are right there along side him.
Aside from the horrendous vaguely Middle Eastern accents, the strange plot, and the occasional Naked Gun-esque slapstick, Zohan isn’t completely unwatchable as long as you don’t expect too much out of it. A lot of the jokes are decent, the movie moves along at a good pace, and Nick Swardson and Kevin Nealon’s parts, although brief, are refreshing. I wouldn’t recommend paying any money for the DVD, but if you download it and you have a couple hours to kill, I’d say go for it. The AXXO rip is here.
