You don't want to mess with the Zohan

This is a comedy film about an Israeli commando who fakes his own death so he can follow his dream - to be a hairstylist in New York City.

There's a lot of glitch in the script - dragging moments and scenes forced to create conflicts. The general plot may be there, but one tends to be lost in the loopholes of unnecessary scenes. Adam Sandler seemed to sacrifice his name when he starred in this film.

Though this comedy film attacks racial discrimination, it too could be guilty of committing the same mistake. The film may actually harm sensibilities without intending it so. Besides, what's the overindulgence on the male genitalia and sex? On a more positive note however, the film does offer a ray of hope for those who want to live a peaceful and productive life, thus reinforcing the myth of "the great American dream".

Rating: 2.5/5
