Sucked. All the funny parts are in the previews.

1/5

"What about it?" "Oh nothing, itís cute. We have five."
"Th-thousand."
"Yes five thousand."
"Donít question it."

It's Adam Sandler, how good can it be?

I dunno, I kinda like Adam Sandler.... In fact hes pretty much the main reason i went to see this movie, to be quite honest I personally think this is just about (if not THE) worst movie he has been in...

Nah, Click was far worse. This had it moments, although they were few and far between

Insanely over the top, but it made me laugh hard a couple of times.. pure silliness.

I liked Click 100x better than this one.
Don't Mess With the Zohan was just awful.

If all else fails, call someone a troll.
that can be fixed... / ∆

To be honest I liked Click more than this too, although I would say Click is his second worst movie....

Terrible. Terrible. TERRIBLE. Movie was just mind-numbingly stupid.

Click was so much better. No comparison.

Cheesy and typical Sandler movie. Some amusing parts, other than that, it sucked

2/5

Me and my wife saw it because her parents decided to take us to see it in the dollar movies one boring day. Wow what a piece of crap (and I thought it would suck). Yes the best parts are all on the commercial, and those parts didn't even look funny either. Sad.

Regardless of if we are right or wrong, history will form its own opinions.


If your not willing to die for democracy then you shouldn't be allowed to enjoy it.

Even though the movie was funny, it was not Sandler's best work (I think Little Nicky and Happy Gilmore were his best). I like that there were parts where they played on the Jewish and Palestinian stereotypes, and in the end work together (more or less).

Refusal to comprimise only succeeds in driving the devil's bargain. However, when one comprimises one's morals, they become the devil's bargain.

I actually loved this movie! But then I've been to Israel and I'm Jewish so all of these jokes made so much sense to me. And every one of my Jewish friends loved it too.

10/10

You guys probably just didn't understand the references as well as I did.

Bad. I wasn't expecting much, but it was still much worse than I thought it would be.

It's just not funny.
