The high-handed premise doesn't always work in Zohan but you have to admire the chutzpah in trying it.

Nothing about You Don't Mess With the Zohan is profound or profoundly classic; it's both wildly uneven and intermittently entertaining, mostly because it wants to fuse lowbrow comedy with a satiric punch.

It's perhaps not much of a schtick, but it's a cohesive schtick, with the sub-schticks of the entire cast well integrated in support and counterpoint.

As a remedy for the Mideast's woes, American pluralism might be slightly impractical; but as a premise for a summer comedy, it's real enough to be funny

I know someone out there must like these things, because Sandler keeps getting the money to make what is turning out to be the same movie over and over again, but I must not be tuned into his comedy wavelength.

The idea that the unholy trinity of Sandler, regular cohort Rob Schneider, and director Dennis Dugan could re-unite after ...Chuck and Larry begs the question: just how much did these guys sell their souls to get another film green lit?

Warts and all, Zohan adds to a beautiful vision

...the latest in a long line of underwhelming Adam Sandler comedies...

You have to give Adam Sandler some credit: He is trying new things and working to expand his particular brand of juvenile comedy, albeit not always successfully.

The ideas and some of the individual bits in Zohan work, but the crudeness of the execution undermines the results.

I cracked up during a lot of this movie.

This counter-terrorism satire is its own worst enemy. Especially whenever Sandler's whining geek turned combo swaggering assassin hair stylist's too-much-information bulging prosthetic crotch pops up.

Slightly better than most.

An army hero wearing Mariah Carey t-shirts? Yes. Yes. Yes.

Sandler prefers to fall back on cartoonish stunt action, sleazy innuendo and bodily fluid gags. These things may satisfy his core fan-base, but everyone else will leave the cinema feeling a bit cheated.

The worst thing about the film is not that but the constant, feeble sexual innuendos with which Sandler saddles himself.

It helps that this is Sandler's least irritating comedy role: instead of being a whiny misfit, he's a local hero who becomes a fish out of water - Crocodile Dundee with a bouffant mullet.

Images of a thrusting male pelvis haunt the sensitive critic yet.

The ongoing conflict between Israel and Palestine isn't exactly the obvious choice of topic for a comedy - which is perhaps why this film is about as funny as a suicide bombing.

The central character may be a spin on Borat, and many of the jokes a touch familiar, but the whole package is so unbelievably silly, you'll find yourself laughing for at least half the running time.
