Right around when Adam Sandler‘s hair goes from ‘fro to flaming in the latest trailer for his summer hairdresser bomb-edy You Don’t Mess with the Zohan, I started to cringe as if locked inside a salon/prison. When the sight of Sandler quietly handling guns makes you wax nostalgic for his flop Bulletproof for its entire duration, something is wrong. The parts here with the great Shelley Berman do the trick, but then I started remembering what funny is and funny is Mr. Berman on Curb Your Enthusiasm. Lastly, is there really room in this mixed-up world for Sacha Baron Cohen’s BrÃ¼no (2008) and Sandler’s Zohan?
Will jocks show up for two loud comedies with blow dryers as laff accessories? Will you? I feel like I have hairspray in my mouth after watching this, like when I hear C.C. Music Factory at the dentist’s office.
