I Have To See This


Not since this movie have I so looked forward to seeing a movie just on the basis of a short plot description and cast.

You Don’t Mess with the Zohan

A Mossad agent fakes his death so he can re-emerge in New York City as a hair stylist.

The case includes Adam Sandler (in the title role), Rob Schneider, Henry Winkler (the Fonz), Mariah Carey (rumoured), and some Israeli-sounding-name actors.

Of course, you can imagine that the plot will involve Sandler’s character and the Arab characters in the movie becoming best buddies. It is, after all, a comedy, and an Adam Sandler one at that. But I’m willing to forgive Sandler since he is a real life mensch.

(Thanks to Ace for drawing my attention to this movie, but not for drawing my attention to..errr.. this).

Update: Despite commenter David’s constant obnoxious comments, I have now reread this post and see where there could be some misunderstanding. What I meant by the last paragraph is you can imagine that there will be some moral equivocation, with the ex-Mossad agent befriending some ex terrorists or something of the sort. I did not mean that he will befriend any Arabs, per se, and this is somehow “wrong.”
