A Mossad agent fakes his own death so he can move to New York and become a hair stylist.
You Don't Mess With the Zohan features intermittent laughs, and will please Sandler diehards, but after awhile the leaky premise wears thin.
The ideas and some of the individual bits in Zohan work, but the crudeness of the execution undermines the results.
This moviegoer has no trouble with lowbrow comedy. The problem with Zohan, however, is that it's like a kid who tells you a silly joke, gets a laugh, and immediately tells the same joke again.
It's perhaps not much of a schtick, but it's a cohesive schtick, with the sub-schticks of the entire cast well integrated in support and counterpoint.
Another sloppily concocted and naggingly non-controversial pretext for Sandler to pelvic thrust his way though a succession of increasingly wacky fish-out-of-water situations.
I'm all for politically incorrect humor, but there has to be humor in the political incorrectness, and I didn't get it here.
As a remedy for the Mideast's woes, American pluralism might be slightly impractical; but as a premise for a summer comedy, it's real enough to be funny
Zohan is both exponentially stranger than Larry and about twice as amusing.
Director Dennis Dugan knows his way around shin-whacking slapstick, and Sandler is mesmerizing.
I know someone out there must like these things, because Sandler keeps getting the money to make what is turning out to be the same movie over and over again, but I must not be tuned into his comedy wavelength.
