He has played a slacker going back to school to convince his father that he is his rightful successor in "Billy Madison", portrayed an aggressive golfer with a powerful slapshot in "Happy Gilmore" and turned from a irresponsible slob to a man with new mission in life in "Big Daddy". Now, he is about to present moviegoers with another distinct character, a Mossad agent turned hairstylist, through his upcoming comedy "You Don't Mess With the Zohan". The question that remains is whether he could achieve the similar box office success with "Zohan" like what he did with "Big Daddy" or even top it.

With the teaming up of Sandler and established filmmaker Judd Apatow, it is apparent that "Zohan" is aiming to deliver the best comedy film of 2008. However, it seems that critics are divided in two giving out mixed reviews for the Columbia Pictures' movie.
