Zohan Banned From Arab Nations

Zohan
Allah be praised! It looks like Zonhan has been stopped in his tracks and will be unable to corrupt the youth of many Arab states thanks to censorship. We get the following scoop from the professionals at Variety:

Arab auds won’t be getting the chance to mess with Adam Sandler after his laffer about the Palestinian-Israeli conflict “You Don’t Mess With The Zohan” was blocked from Arab cinemas.

While censorship has eased slightly across the Arab world in recent years, a number of subject matters remain taboo. Anything attacking religion is generally a no-no everywhere in the region, while sex is a problem in the more conservative Gulf states, although not an issue in socially liberal Lebanon. The country, for example, was the only Arab country to allow the theatrical release of “Sex and the City.”

Many were not happy with the Zohan after they shelled out money to see his film. It received little praise, and the word on the street was that it was hurting. Many are no doubt championing the Arab states for making the correct decision.

Regardless of how good or bad the film is, I still think people should have a chance to see it if they want to. No governing body should be able to dictate what Adam Sandler films we can or cannot watch.

  1. He makes fun of Arabs and Jews, and himself. Actually, if you were paying attention, the message of the movie is that it’s time for the Arab-Israeli conflict to come to an end.

    And yeah, it was a hysterically funny movie for anyone who likes Adam.

  2. Your not arab you insensitive prick ! You don’t know how it feels ! !

    How would you like it if Adam Sandler made a movie about caucasians acting stupid and humiliating them.. huh… huh??

    wait a min……… never mind…

    Well said.

  4. this is crazy. next their gonna boycott every comedy. people need to stop taking things seriously and learn when we are just joking

  5. I would support the ban if there were to be a clause that the ban would be lifted once Adam Sandler’s comedies improve in quality.

  6. It’s getting to the point where you can’t make fun of fleas because the fleas will boycott the movie – sheesh!!

  7. :( The Arab Nations are so fucking stupid!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :(

    Anyway, I haven’t seen this movie yet but a friend of mine liked it. I have seen some of his other movies and a couple of them has been good.

  8. I never really agreed with any censorship… KInda like with I Am Curious Yellow… because of sexual content… but it was the same decade that brought about adult films which still baffles me why they we so whatever with it…

    Oh and something on the whole thing with the boycotting of Tropic Thunder… I wanted to get on earlier and say this… but I was watching a kid who is 18 but has the mental compasity of 10… but we are talking and just goofing around talking about random things and I mentioned a person I forget who but he called them retarded… So that just slaps that whole boycot thing in the face hahaha…
