Some of the jokes in the film are directly related to an old Saturday Night Live sketch, titled "Sabra Price is Right". The sketch aired on May 9, 1992 (Saturday Night Live (1975) season seventeen, episode nineteen, "Tom Hanks/Bruce Springsteen") and the show was hosted by Tom Hanks. The specific jokes include the recurring "Disco! Disco! Good! Good!" saying, as well as "No-no-no-no-no-no". Also, the entire sketch revolves around bidding on cheap electronics that the host claims to have "Sony guts", or a variation of that brand, very similar to the electronics store salesmen in this movie. The SNL sketch included many of the actors who appeared in this movie - Adam Sandler, Rob Schneider, Robert Smigel, Kevin Nealon, and Chris Rock. See more »
(at around 10 mins) When Zohan and Phantom are fighting in the water outside of the Lebanon stronghold, Phantom grabs a Piranha out of the water and lets it bite his neck. Not only are Piranha only native to South American rivers, but are also freshwater fish. The water in this scene would have most likely been the Mediterranean Sea, which is saltwater. See more »
I've liked pretty much every zany Sandler movie since Happy Gilmore. His zany antics and crude childish humor are a perfect escape for a fun movie night.
I was expecting this with Zohan but instead I was treated to the same crude sex joke about 27 times. OK OK I get it he bangs old ladies...it stopped being funny after about 20 seconds....time to move on.
The whole Arab/ Israeli thing was done poorly..was unfunny and really annoying. The last half of the movie should have been left on the cutting room floor.
It was like the directors and writers got bored after creating the first 45 min of the movie and just found the quickest way to fill up the next hour with meaningless garbage.
Avoid this tripe...even a 12 pack won't make it seem funnier.
