Movie Review: You Don't Mess with the Zohan (English) 66

If it is Adam Sandler, it has to be at least a good comedy. This one is surely enjoyable, but be prepared to take in a big dose of lewd humor thrown into the movie in a great measure at every possible opportunity. In a departure from the good-boy comedy in 50 first dates or a helpless hubby in Anger Management, this time, Sandler plays Zohan, an Israeli Counterterrorist with an unshakable penchant for hair, women and Humus.

Zohan is the perfect weapon that any army would be proud to possess. Blessed with near invulnerability, don’t ask me how, and skills to juggle stuff, jump buildings and even tolerate a piranha in his pants! But, in his heart, it is not war that he wants, but to cut and style hair! While on a mission to capture his arch-enemy and nearly equally skilled phantom, Zohan fakes his death and heads to America to live his hairdresser dream.

Taking on the name Scrappy Coco, derived from the names of two dogs in whose box he travels to America, he tries in futility to find a job at leading salons. Ambling on the road, he bumps into a boy, saves the latter from road rage and gains a living space, thanks to the boy’s mother taking an insatiable interest in Zohan. Yes, you read it right! But that’s just one of the many women that Zohan goes on to satisfy though the film!

Soon, he lands a job in a small salon run by a Palestinian Dahlia (Emmanuelle Chriqui) in a locality where Israelis and Palestinian Arabs ran sundry shops. Skeptical at first to hand Zohan the scissors, Dahlia soon finds her salon become a runaway hit, thanks to the invulnerable weirdo tagging in a quickie for the old women in the back room. It goes without saying that our hero soon falls for the irresistibly pretty Dahlia, who likes him too.

The movie prompts a funny way of solving the middle-eastern conflict when the Phantom who later lands in America following his passion to sell shoes, and our hero join hands to save their natives’ shacks from a local land-shark. The story is predictable, but the humor keeps it going! For the lead, Sandler, also one of the movie’s writers is at his best again. Chriqui a Canadian actress, actually an Israeli by descent is desirable eye candy!

So, if you are one of those who cringe at a comic of virile macho male star romancing old women while giving them a haircut or a shampoo, I suggest you keep away Zohan. As with the majority, if you don’t mind leaving your brains and logic in the refrigerator back home, you are in for a lot of funnies, sometimes weird though, that would leave you rolling on the floor asking for more. Adam Sandler, you’re a killer with comedy!

Rating: 6/10 – Lewd Comedy! Lose your logic, sit back and enjoy the ride!
