Roger Ebert This is a mighty hymn of and to vulgarity, and either you enjoy it, or you don't. I found myself enjoying it a surprising amount of the time, even though I was thoroughly ashamed of myself.
Adam Nayman Zohan’s why-can’t-we-all-just-get-along exhortations are disarmingly sincere, but they’re also couched so deeply in Sandler-brand comic mediocrity that the gesture barely seems worth it.
Peter Travers It's the Middle East crisis played for laughs, and it gets a few until the movie backs off its bolder notions.
A crass, wildly uneven, and surprisingly unfunny comedy that scrapes the bottom of the barrel of ''lowest common denominator'' with its broad stereotypes and caricatures, bad direction and a plot that would have worked best, if at all, as a 3 or so minute skit on Saturday Night Live.
Tomatometer You Don't Mess With the Zohan features intermittent laughs, and will please Sandler diehards, but after awhile the leaky premise wears thin.
What the People say
13004 Netizens It's one of those movies that would have been great in 1998. But falls short in 2008. Its just the same gimmick that has been done by 'Happy Madison Productions'.
