First Look: Adam Sandler in You Don't Mess with the Zohan
Even after 12 years since Billy Madison first came out, Adam Sandler is still delivering strong, even giving a great dramatic performance in Reign Over Me. Sandler can even do a great job changing his image from the same likeable Jewish face we've come to love into something striking, like in Reign Over Me and now in this. His next film is titled You Don't Mess with the Zohan and is written by three comedy greats: Knocked Up's Judd Apatow, SNL's Robert Smigel and Adam Sandler together. In it, Sandler plays an Israel Intelligence Agency operative, and he looks quite convincing, at least for a comedy.
The plot follows the exploits of a Mossad agent, played by Sandler, who fakes his death so he can anonymously move to New York and become a hair stylist. The photo comes courtesy of JoBlo, so send some love their way, too!
You Don't Mess with the Zohan is directed by Dennis Dugan, who previously directed I Now Pronounce You Chuck and Larry, The Benchwarmers, Saving Silverman, and Big Daddy. The film arrives in theaters next year on June 6th, 2008.

seems like the cards are set in motion, the only thing left is the question if dennis dugan can actually make the same magic he did with big daddy and not crap like saving silverman and the other movies he's directed lately.

this P.O.S. proves, once again, that Hollywood is desparate to create a Jewish super hero

I thought the movie was very poorly written, weak story line, lots of porn and very degrading to mature women. It's soft porn. What really got me is there were kids that looked like 9 or 10 watching it. Come on that should have been R rated. Most of the movie was all about him having sex with elderly women, the movie in my opinion was a bomb. I'll never watch a Adam Sandler movie again.
