You Don't Mess With The Zohan.

You Don't Mess With The Zohan is a 2008 comedy film directed by Dennis Dugan. It was co-produced and co-written by Adam Sandler, who also stars in the lead. Sandler's production company, Happy Madison, produced the film; and it was distributed by Columbia Pictures.

With it's fake accents, elaborate storyline, in-your-face dialogue; You Don't Mess With The Zohan is solid-entertainment. It pulls jokes at the most unusual things, in the most unusual ways, at the most unusual times. It is satire of the most raw kind. Straight from the acting - Presenting: Adam Sandler, John Turturro, Rob Schneider, Michael Buffer; and cameos by Henry Winkler, Mariah Carey, Kevin James, and John McEnroe; Zohan is a fun ride with moments which can make your tummy ache with laughter.

Negatives come in the form of it's running time- almost two hours, a tad too long. But remembering certain sequences makes it feel worth it. The background score, with a host of middle-eastern tracks, is highly engaging. With everything from hair-dressing to fast-food outlets, from shoe-selling dreams to fake breats; Zohan has a numerous laugh out loud things on offer.

6/10. Yes, John McEnroe has a cameo in it. Believe it!
