Zohan Dvir 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 dog-kennel on a plane bound for New York, and decides to try his hand as a hair-stylist.

The headband of the Phantom has the word Phantom written on it in Arabic. In the early scenes, the letters are not connected, whereas later on they are. (All Arabic words when written are connected - if not it is just a collection of letters that mean nothing.) See more »
When utterly dumb humor meets an inexplicable trashy mess ...guess what we get! You Don't Mess with the Zohan . Can't give you any points for guessing though. A sound plot I never really expected, for its a Sandler movie, so just watched for a good laugh. But what a waste of time. The lines are dull, the humor is agonizingly dumb and its so damn sleazy that your eyes and ears hurt. Even Sandler die-hard fans would reject this no good movie.
Folks, can't write more. Will only tell that if you want to watch a good comedy -- you don't mess with this good-for-nothing trash! Watch it at your own risk!
