You Don't Mess With the Zohan
This Friday I'll be producing the Cinemascape show on Eastside 89.7FM. The show will feature reviews of Kung Fu Panda, Mike Leigh's Happy-Go-Lucky as well as my thoughts on the comedy You Don't Mess With the Zohan. Adam Sandler stars as Zohan; an all fighting, all killing one man Israelii army. He dreams of becoming a hair stylist in New York so he fakes his own death during an epic battle with his arch nemesis The Phantom, John Turturro, and heads to NYC, scissors in hand. After a few set backs he swallows his pride and gets a job in a Palestinian hairdressers. He romances his clients by giving them "special services" in the back room. As his prowess makes him more and more popular, he is inevitably recognized, and risks losing his newfound life and career as his past comes back to haunt him. To hear me pass judgment on the latest Sandler comedy tune in at 18.00.
