Zohan is both exponentially stranger than Larry and about twice as amusing.New YorkerJune 16, 2008

I'm all for politically incorrect humor, but there has to be humor in the political incorrectness, and I didn't get it here.New York Magazine/VultureJune 09, 2008

The idea that the unholy trinity of Sandler, regular cohort Rob Schneider, and director Dennis Dugan could re-unite after ...Chuck and Larry begs the question: just how much did these guys sell their souls to get another film green lit?Reel Film ReviewsOctober 24, 2008
