You Don't Mess with the Zohan is an outstanding Adam Sandler action-comedy, hilarious almost throughout and refreshingly original with its unusual subject matter (Israeli counter-terrorist fakes death to become a hairdresser in a Palestinian salon in New York). Even if you're not a huge Sandler fan, you're likely to find plenty of laughs in this one, and if you like him, you'll love this. On Blu-ray it comes with an interesting package - the video looks a little processed and not quite as real as it should, but the audio sounds superb, and with the release brimming with extras, there's very little to actual disappoint fans here (how many people are going to be watching this movie for shiny visuals?) and this one comes recommended as a blind buy. It's one of those few movies which actually live up to the expectations brought on by the excellent trailer - so if you have any reservations, go check that out, and then add this one to your shopping cart.
