Adam Sandler Demonstrates How Far He's Fallen Since 'Happy Gilmore'new

Beginning encouragingly with a bit of charming stupid-funny, You Don't Mess with the Zohan rapidly disintegrates into blank-staring, brain-cell-destroying inanity, alighting, occasionally, on the rarest flowers of slap-yourself-on-the-forehead-because-it's-so-stupid funny and then, about 12 minutes into the two-hour-long slog, it settles into illimitably stupefying, comatose-inducing and transcendentally dimwitted, anti-funny.

All You Can Eatnew

Adam Sandler is perfect in the role of the put-upon husband in Spanglish. Despite wonderful performances, the film about a crumbling marriage never quite works.
