Zohan (Sandler) is an Israeli counter-terrorist agent who has had enough of the constant fighting between the Palestinians and the Jews. After capturing the most wanted Palestinian terrorist, The Phantom (Turturro), Zohan is angry to find him out of prison shortly after capture, due to a prisoner exchange deal between the two waring governments. With dreams of becoming a hairdresser in the States, Zohan fakes his death and flees the Holy Land.

Reason #40 Why Readers Love Widescreen Review:
I love your magazine and am a subscriber! In order of priority, I read Widescreen in order to: 1) Read about home theatre equipment technology that is on the cutting edge.

As an example, when I saw that the DVD Forum Adopts HD-DVD Format (Feb 04), so(delete) I canceled my plans to buy a recordable DVD player, as I can see High Def DVD players are just around the corner. For the same reason, I am also limiting my purchase of movies on regular DVD as well. 2) Read DVD movie reviews, so that I can see whether a DVD is worth buying or not. If a movie receives poor Widescreen ratings on Picture and/or Sound, I probably will not buy the DVD. Rounders is one of my favorite movies, but I refuse to purchase it based on your poor ratings. 3) Home theatre configuration advice. Thanks and keep up the great work.
