Movie review: You Don't Mess With The Zohan

If you have seen the trailer for You Don't Mess With The Zohan, then you probably saw many of the best jokes from the movie, but there are still more to be seen and heard. It's not the best comedy of the summer, but I liked it. There are a few very funny scenes.

It stars Adam Sandler, John Turturro, Emmanuelle Chriqui, Rob Schneider and many others. I guess it's a little "risqué", dealing with Middle East and American people, with many stereotypes throughout the movie, but the conclusion is actually quite positive. You don't really see this kind of comedy for the message, but I like how they did made one of tolerance. You know, humour is probably a good way to do it, after all.

The plot is well explained in the trailer, but if you have not seen it, it's about a very skilled anti-terrorist army guy who grows tired of the fighting and move to America (aka the United States) to live his dream of becoming a hair stylist. His idol is Paul Mitchell and after being turned down from his salon, he finds a more modest one to start his new career. Of course, his past will come back to haunt him and he will need to rely on his fighting skills from time to time.

This is obviously an Adam Sandler movie, so keep that in mind when deciding to see it or not... I like him, so I had fun. :-)
