It was my intention to only write bad reviews throughout August. Oops. I didn't hate this film.
In case you missed the massive advertising campaign, this film is about a Middle Eastern anti-terrorist of some renown going to America to become a hair stylist.
This film is fast paced, the dialog was a lot of fun, visually it was enjoyable to watch and the story was great for an action comedy. It provided plenty of opportunities for humorous dialogue and physical humor.
I'm a fan of slapstick and parodies. There are aspects of parody here that touch on politics, holy wars and immigration. The appearance of Saturday Night Live alumnus actually improves the quality of this film, which is good to see.
I hate to say it, but the advertising hurt this movie a little. Some of the best punch lines in the film are right there in the 15 and 30 second trailers.
I suggest this film to anyone who enjoys a good laugh. There's something in here for anyone who enjoys an R or NC17 rated comedy. Oh, and keep your eyes open, there are little jokes in the background.
I wouldn't even mess with the Zohan over the Webernet.
