Adam Sandler has a crack at solving the Arab-Israeli conflict in this often-inspired comedy. He is the genial Zohan, Israel's top Special Forces soldier whose dream is to be a hairdresser in New York. He fakes his own death and winds up in the Big Apple, where he eventually gets a job in a Palestinian-owned salon. However, his true identity is discovered and he soon finds himself in a showdown with his arch-enemy, terrorist 'The Phantom'. Despite its sensitive subject matter, the film's plea for tolerance and Sandler's clowning make for a film that is both deeply silly and surprisingly thoughtful.

12 Classification

This film has one use of strong bad language, frequent moderate sex references, and racial and cultural stereotyping that may cause offence.

"Some of them saw a clip from Wakolda (The German Doctor) on TV recently and really wanted to watch it. So I thought I’d take a chance, not expecting them to watch the whole film but the majority were absolutely gripped. "
