At What Scene Did You Walk Out of "You Don't Mess With the Zohan"?

We don't review motion pictures here - but we need to make an exception for this outstanding film - outstanding in its awfulness.

If the title role of Zohan was not an ostensibly Israeli character, there would be zero reason for me to mention this artless dreck.

Suffice it to say that in our opinion there will be no Oscar nominations for Adam Sandler this year unless the Academy adds a category for Worst Actor in a Nauseating Role.

"You Don't Mess With the Zohan" is by far and away one of the most bizarre and obnoxious films of all times, rivaling "Idiocracy" as the most tasteless satirical film in recent memory.

We put a question - a poll - to you our readers who tried to view this film: at which utterly pointless and obnoxious scene did you walk out?... wish you could walk out?... were sorry you took your wife, husband or date to see the flick (or G-d forbid, the children)?

Paradoxically I have to add that if any of you were able to stomach the nonsense, there were some zippy lines and funny scenes.... but phooey, don't go!

I have yet to find a reason to walk in.

Maybe he's looking for a Razzie Award. Like smud said, I won't walk out since I won't go in first.

Tough to beat Idiocracy at its own game, but I'll take your word for it.
