Don't Mess With The Zohan Trailer
Sandler turns gun-toting hairdresser
What do we learn from the new trailer for You Don't Mess With The Zohan, which you can see at JoBlo here? Primarily, Adam Sandler has been hitting the gym and he wants you to know about it. Also, this film might not be very funny.
The trailer looks like it might not be finished, particularly because the editing is very strange. There's no rhythm to it, just a rather random assemblage of clips, some very long and some very short. We get the story explained – Sandler plays a Mossad agent who trades in his guns to become a hairdresser – but there's very little comedy. Unless you count Adam Sandler in his pants, waggling around. Which we don't.
The film's got the Judd Apatow name stamped on it and Sandler's capable of being very funny, although he's by no means reliable, so this has a good shot at being fun. But this clip's doing nothing for us. What do you think?
UPDATE: For reasons of fair comparison, here's the previous trailer, which is much funnier. We may have missed this a couple of weeks ago. Why? I don't know. Some mysteries will remain forever unsolved, like the Lindberg baby and how Donald Trump's hair does that.
