"I seem to be the opp. of some people. While others think this is one of his junkest films, I find it to be one of the best. It's super funny, like how can you not laugh while watching this film? I don't care for Adam Sandler in general not that my likeing for him would determine how i felt about the movie. Anyway, so he plays a counterterrorist agent who gets tired of all the fighting and wants to instead cut hair. It's more peaceful and no, he's not a fagala or however you spell that funny word. He uses his amazing talents when cutting hair with a little extra for each customer. All the sexaul stuff was sometimes a little too much but watching the action and dancing and other stuff made the film worth it. I really do like this film and it never gets old. If you can't laugh even once while watching, then you must be depressed."

"A "Kumbaya" type of film with a "Can't we all get along" theme that has more than a few belly laughs. Opens with some interesting shots presumably of the Middle East terrain, but possibly a convincing illusion created on a Hollywood sound stage.
In general, I would say that the Palestinians come out on the short end based on the direction of the satire and the stereotypes. And it was hard to gauge why all of the customers of the Arab-owned hair styling shop were all elderly Jewish women. Anyway, if you've got nothing better to watch and want a few chuckles, this one will definitely fit the bill"
