A: An Israeli counter terrorist (Adam Sandler), with dreams of becoming a hairstylist, fakes his own death so he can escape to America and work for Paul Mitchell.
Q: Who’s in the movie?
A: Adam Sandler, Emmanuelle Chriqui, John Turturro, Nick Swardson, Lainie Kazan, Ido Mosseri, Rob Schneider, Dave Matthews, Michael Buffer
Q: Is this movie worth the price of admission?
A: Proceed with Caution. If you're already a fan of Adam Sandler's style of humor, the quality of this one may surpass your expectations... It's almost like they tried to make a good movie this time.
Q: Will this movie make me laugh?
A: It's broad as hell, but if you allow yourself to go along with the ridiculousness, a lot of it kind of works.
Q: Will this movie make me cry?
A: There is something inspiring about the far out concept that the solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict can be found in the subtext of an Adam Sandler comedy.
Q: Will this movie be up for any awards?
A: Wouldn't it be funny if it were?
Q: How is the Acting?
A: Adam Sandler's Israeli accent is so strong and consistent that I would actually believe him if he told me he'd been to Israel. Dave Matthews' performance finally convinced me that he really is serious about pursuing this acting stuff. Meanwhile, Ido Mosseri gives the kind of breakout performance that could set him up to corner the market on funny looking, funny guys of Israeli descent. Look out, Ben Stiller!
Q: How is the Directing?
A: Nothing all that surprising here. Dennis Dugan is Adam Sandler's go to guy. He's been creating that hacky look, for years now. But at least this movie is a vast improvement on I Now Pronounce You Chuck and Larry, which blew chunks of fire and fake gay love.
Q: How is the story/script?
A: It includes a number of jokes that are pretty darn clever, which we can most likely credit to Judd Apatow. It also includes a number of feats never before accomplished by a phallus, which I assume is the loving work of Robert Smigel, who regularly proves his adoration of phallus flaunting in his work on The Ambiguously Gay Duo, on SNL.
