You Don’t Mess with the Zohan (2008) – Movie Review

You Don’t Mess with the Zohan released in 2009 and directed by Dennis Dugan. Now everyone has got to love the comedy from Adam Sandler, but this one was a bit off. We at WoodBangers Entertainment are big fans of Adam Sandler‘s work, but this film just didn’t do it for us. It did have his usual comedy style but it seemed a mix between character roles to fill it out bouncing from Little Nicky to Waterboy is about the best way to describe this. We give this film a 3 out of 5 Star Rating, only reaching to 3 because we are fans. We have watched this movie multiple times in hopes that maybe we just were not in that mod at the time to see comedy, but no; it is just the story-line’s focus seem to be a laughter or making a mockery of nationality race issues. Not a good time to put out a film on this sort of issue, when it’s release it was more of the oil steeling time time than usual; making the movie seem to aim towards a picking sides type of thing. But, we all know film isn’t just to point out world issues hidden in comedy based or other genre films. This film had a realistic point showing that we should all just get over the hatred of race and pointing fingers. That point is why we do own this film.
