Back to the Future

"Sandler goes back to his juvenile roots with this one. That is not a bad thing in my book, I find Billy Madison and Happy Gilmore a riot. In this movie, Sandler plays Zohan. Zohan is a tough as nails Israeli intelligence operative who fakes his death because he is sick of all the violence in the Middle East. He goes to America to become a hair dresser because he wants everyone to have silky smooth hair. Not every joke works, but the silly situations come fast and furious. If one doesn't get you, then maybe the next one will. Yes it is pretty stupid and juvenile stuff, but I found most of the movie amusing. If you like his first movies, then this one is for you."
If only the world could be united with laughter

"Well, clearly, not everyone has the same sense of humor. You've got to walk Disbelief right out the door with "You don't mess with Zohan," but if you just need a fun summer flick and you have a very bent sense of humor, this could be it.
Story in a nutshell: Zohan (Sandler) is tired of the Israeli Army. He busts it to capture a terrorist, the Phantom (John Turturro) and the government merely trades the Phantom back. So--when his next opportunity to go up against his arch nemesis comes up, Zohan stages his own death and comes to America to become a hairdresser. He ends up falling for a Palestinian girl, Dalia (Emmanuelle Chriqui) and realizing there are worse things than his original enemies.
The humor's just as juvenile as you would expect, but if you need a good, hard laugh--and you don't mind gross, this is it. Be warned, you will never look the same way at hummus again!

Worst. Movie. Ever.

"Not sure what's going on with Adam Sandler these days. It seems as if whatever freshness he brought to the tasble early on is gone. Now, its as if he's pursuing what he thinks is comedy. This wasn't justa bad Sandler movie, it was a bad movie period."
Full of sheer stupidity,not sandler's best at all

"Well, my husband bought this and being a somewhat fan of Adam Sandler I figured I would give it a try. I shouldn't have even bothered. I know it is a comedy but the whole movie is sheer stupidity and a bit crude even though I understand it was the unrated version. I liked Sandler's other movies but this one belongs in the trash."
