Terrific premise, terrible execution. That's the problem with Zohan, about an Israeli supersoldier (Sandler) who moves to New York City and reinvents himself as a hairstylist. Sandler, who cowrote, molded his body into killer shape but left the script flabby. Many gags are amusing at first—Zohan insists on finishing each styling by bedding his elderly clients—but barely tolerable by their 15th appearance.
