The opening scene on a beach in Tel Aviv strongly references the film Peeping Toms (1972) starring Uri Zohar, Israel's "bad boy" of the 1960s and early 1970s, who later became an orthodox rabbi. Zohan looks just like Zohar, including hairstyle and wardrobe. See more »
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 »
While it has some funny moments. It has a lot less.
It's one of those movies that would have been great in 1998. But falls short in 2008. Its just the same gimmick that has been done by 'Happy Madison Productions'.
Reminds me of: Chuck and Larry, Strange Wilderness, The Benchwarmers, Dickie Roberts, 50 first dates, Etc.
It's just well.....for lack of a better word. Stupid. It might have you grabbing your sides in 98', but when you watch it, its somewhat like, "OK, let me guess, Rob Schneider is going to pop up and say something dumb with a 'pause for laughter' moment?" Yup.
Is Sandler going to do a stupid voice the whole movie and end on a 'touching theme'?. Yup.
Acting is good, I will give it that. However, if you have seen any Adam Sandler movie, then you won't be surprised with his acting choices. Same choices, different accent.
Nothing against Sandler, his movies were great.......in 98'
I'd wait for DVD,...if that.
