Ken Berwitz

I've been in Chicago at a convention,  and got about 20 minutes' sleep in the last three nights (or so it seemed).  Despite this, the minute I got home (early this evening) my wife and friends of ours roped me into going to a movie.  I barely had time to unpack

I had no doubt I would sleep through the movie.  Not only did this not trouble me, I was looking forward to it.

But they dragged me to see Adam Sandler's new movie, "Don't Mess With The Zohan".

If there is a dumber or more bizarre movie in Hollywood history I haven't seen it.  But it was so ridiculously imbecilic that it was funny.  Hysterically funny.

This is the kind of movie where you sit in the theater and shake your head that anyone could even think of putting it on film, let alone actually doing so and releasing it to the general public.

But I'll tell you this much;  in almost two hours I never fell asleep for even one second.  And a lot of that time I was laughing out loud. 

A palestinian Arab terrorist opening a chain of "Muchentuchen" restaurants?  An Israeli mossad guy (I think) giving it all up to become a hair stylist in New York City and relentlessly having sex with old ladies?

Think of "Don't Mess With The Zohan" as Borat with a circumcision.

Do yourself a favor.  Just go and see it.  You probably won't know why you're laughing half the time, but you won't stop laughing for the entire movie.

And now I'm going to sleep.  Good night.
