Interview: Adam Sandler on You Don’t Mess With The Zohan

Since making the transition from TV and stand up to movies in the mid-90s, Adam Sandler has become one of Hollywood’s biggest comedy stars.

Films such as Happy Gilmore, The Wedding Singer and Big Daddy have all been big hits whilst he has also starred in more discerning projects such as Punch-Drunk Love, Spanglish and Reign Over Me.

His latest film is You Don’t Mess With The Zohan, a comedy in which plays an Israeli commando who tires of fighting terrorists and packs it all in so he can travel to America and fulfill his dream of becoming a hairdresser in New York.

I spoke to Adam recently about the film and his career, which you can listen to here:

Trailer: You Don’t Mess With the Zohan

Here are some clips and the trailer for the new Adam Sandler comedy You Don’t Mess With the Zohan:

It is a suprisingly funny film – despite the fact that, like a lot of Sandler comedies, it descends into third act slapstick madness.

Some of the social/political humour was actually quite ballsy, think Munich crossed with Happy Gilmore and you’ll get some idea of way this film mines the Arab-Israeli conflict for humour.

Despite some predictable lapses into ‘why can’t we all get along’ territory, I found myself laughing at some of the gleefully nonsensical elements.

Sandler’s comedies don’t always do that well outside the US, but perhaps this one might buck the trend.

You Don’t Mess With The Zohan opens in the UK on August 15th and is out now in the US
