Trivia / You Don't Mess with the Zohan

  • Actor Allusion:
  • Dyeing for Your Art: While much of Zohan's physical prowess was the result of stuntmen and serious suspension of disbelief, Sandler got into the best shape of his life (with a full-on six pack and Heroic Build) to play the Israeli Super Soldier.
  • Fake Nationality: Most of the Palestinian characters in the movie, who are portrayed mainly by Jewish actors.
    • Italian John Turturro as the Palestinian Phantom.
    • Canadian Jew of Moroccan descent Emmanuelle Chriqui as Dalia.
    • Half Jewish Rob Schneider as Salim.
    • The only actor on cast who is actually from the region is Israeli Ido Mosseri, who plays Uri.
