    You don't mess with your dream

    You don't mess with the Zohan is another of Adam Sandler comedies. There are few themes in his movies, which are quite strong and humanity and love, beyond material world is definitely one of them. Zohan (Adam Sandler), a top Israeli commando, who captures terrorists at will and is a legend in the force lets a terrorist named Phantom (John Turturro) escape and settles for less glorious life in United States, pursuing his dream of becoming a hair stylist, which no one is willing to believe or support. He is tired of the mindless and seemingly endless fighting going on between Israel and Palestine, where deaths keep on happening. In New York, not getting much success in getting a job in any of the popular salons, including his dream Paul Mitchell, he settles with working at a salon owned by Dalia (Emmanuelle Chriqui) a beautiful Palestine woman. With his unique offering of style and sex to follow-up, he wins the heart of all women in town, who line up in front of the salon.

    In the mean time, the scheming builder with perfectly proportioned girl friend is trying to get the plot to build his new-age mall. Talk about oh-so topical builder threat to small neighbourhoods in big town. The builder even sends fake Arab people to fuel hatred and try to divide the resistance. Ultimately, people realize that, they have to live together in harmony, with love blossoming between Zohan and Dalia.

    Some of scenes are funnily vulgar, but a treat to watch and thoroughly entertaining. Carries a message, that the violence around us is meaningless and can ultimately stop, if people want it. Hmm...isn't this a nice thought to carry home?
