* AcceptableTargets: Arabs and Israelis are shown to be NotSoDifferent, but rednecks are still fair game.
* AlternateAesopInterpretation: While the movie's finale is listed under SpaceWhaleAesop on the main page, it could just as easily be interpreted to mean "Ancient hatreds should be left behind when moving to a new place for a new start."
* CrowningMomentOfAwesome: "Yes. My feet uppercut!"
* CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming: [[spoiler: The film's climax, when a three thousand-year-old ethnic hatred is conquered... at least in America]].
* EarWorm: Ace of Base's "Beautiful Life". Also, the jingle for Phantom's restaurant commercial. "Everyone is going to Phantom's chewy ''Muchentuchen'', for the food the heroes eeeeeeeeeat..."
* HilariousInHindsight: A court ruled a store cannot be named "Going Out of Business" sometime after the movie came out.
* [[MexicansLoveSpeedyGonzales Israelis Love the Zohan]]: This film is more than likely to get quite a few laughs from Israelis, if only for the [[ShallowParody grossly inaccurate parody]] of ''anything'' Israeli-related.
* MisBlamed: Despite many critics accusing Sandler of ripping off ''Film/{{Borat}}'' with his portrayal of Zohan, WordOfGod is that Zohan's personality (and even much of his background) is pretty much directly taken from one of Sandler's former hair stylists.
* NauseaFuel: Watching this movie may turn you off hummus.
