Now, the Zohan must fight tooth and nail to keep his new lifestyle, and in the meantime, try to win the heart of his boss. Can Zohan's dazzling hairstyling techniques save the world?Written by
Throughout the film, Zohan and other Israeli characters use various Hebrew words and phrases, including: Abba (father), Ema (Mother), B'seder (okay), and Yiddish words, including: faygelah (homosexual), tuches (butt). See more »
(at around 45 mins) When Zohan is allowed to shampoo the hair of Mrs. Skitzer, he initially lays her back and visibly moves her long hair into the washing sink. In the very next cut, her hair is outside of the sink again. Then when he pulls the purple cover up over her body, her hair is again back inside the sink. See more »
If your expectations are high going into movies like this, then please, do yourself a favor and never watch a movie again. This is an Adam Sandler movie and we all know what he's like and what type of humor we're going to expect.....and this movie is no different.
I wanted to laugh, and this movie did just that for me and more! Being from Israel, I found his jokes funny and very witty. I don't know if none-Israeli's would find half the jokes funny though.
The movie tried to delve into the whole Israeli-Arab conflict, but it doesn't go deep enough to make much of a point.
See the movie if you wanna laugh, A lot, but don't see it if your looking for a an Oscar movie night.
