    Our Verdict:
    Green Tea says:
    Adam Sandler's movie is always been appealing. Though this movie is like the Israeli's pride, don't get it wrong, it's not a movie about Israel. Two months-off its American release, this movie is kind-off "old" but anticipated. The themes centre around the divided intention between the duty for the country or for oneself. Soldier-turn-hair-stylist is something of a fresh idea and brings in an interest. Never mind about the scrappy plot, not making sense story line, sexism appearance or stupid and bad-accent dialogue, this is Adam Sandler's movie and his Avalon hairstyles, no need for making it the right sense at all. Besides, this is another go through, sit tight and laugh my throat out kind of movie. Adam did it again, but it is not the best he ever had!! If sexism is noy uour type, then this movie is not your type. I wonder why the censorship gave it a linear (U) though I would gave it a (18PL)
