You Don't Mess With the Zohan
Source: Catholic News Service
Typically vulgar Adam Sandler comedy centers on Zohan Dvir, a lethal Israeli commando who abandons an illustrious army career in order to fulfill his dream of becoming a New York hairdresser. Perhaps the best that can be said about this inanity is that a message of intercultural harmony and understanding seeps through the sex-related raunchiness, rendering it less harsh and marginally less offensive than Sandler's last effort, "I Now Pronounce You Chuck & Larry," also directed by Dennis Dugan. Pervasive sexual content (much of it involving senior citizens), numerous sexual references (many spoken in Yiddish), countless obscene gestures, frequent crude and crass language, rear male and female nudity, some toilet humor, mildly disparaging racial and religious slurs, and a modicum of action violence. The USCCB Office for Film & Broadcasting classification is O -- morally offensive. The Motion Picture Association of America rating is PG-13 -- parents strongly cautioned. Some material may be inappropriate for children under 13.
