All goes silky smooth until his cover is blown when he's recognized by a Palestinian cab driver (Rob Schneider). Now, The Zohan must fight to live a peaceful new life in New York in this razor-sharp action-packed comedy from Adam Sandler, Robert Smigel, Judd Apatow and Dennis Dugan.

Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: This moviegoer has no trouble with lowbrow comedy. The problem with Zohan, however, is that it's like a kid who tells you a silly joke, gets a laugh, and immediately tells the same joke again.
Rotten: The ideas and some of the individual bits in Zohan work, but the crudeness of the execution undermines the results.
Fresh: Director Dennis Dugan knows his way around shin-whacking slapstick, and Sandler is mesmerizing.
Rotten: It's a difficult feat to manage irony without antecedent, so rather than opt for knowing caricature -- like, say, Adam Goldberg's The Hebrew Hammer -- Zohan mostly opts for empty farce: topical humor for people unfamiliar with the topic.
Haha Loved it!!!
This movie was the funniest movie of the summer. The story wasn't blown out of proportion too much, the jokes (even though some were racial) were super funny, and sandler was just amazing. I thought the sexual aspect of the movie just added to the jokes even more. Super funny, great buy.
If you like any other Sandler movie, you will like this one.

I LOVED this movie!! I was laughing from start to finish! It's worth buying!
