About two weeks before Judd Apatow's next comedy film makes its debut in the theaters across the U.S., "You Don't Mess With the Zohan" held its world premiere on May 28, 2008. In the celebration of the film's first exclusive screening, red carpet was rolled down at the Grauman's Chinese theatre in Hollywood, California.
Though the special event wasn't as star-studded as the "Sex and the City" New York premiere, it still made noteworthy with the coming out of the comedy movie's stars, naming some were Adam Sandler, Rob Schneider, Lainie Kazan, Emmanuelle Chriqui and Nick Swardson, and the filmmakers, including co-writer Apatow and executive producer Robert Smigel. The red carpet was also made unique with the existence of barber chair on a section of it with the background of wig shelves.
Aside from those cast members, other notable Hollywood stars walking down the red carpet to join the celebration also included David Hasselhoff, Kevin James, David Spade, Anna Faris, Lucy Lawless, Emma Stone and Teresa Palmer.
On the other story relating to Sandler, the leading actor of "Zohan" has been announced to be the recipient of the coveted MTV Generation Award at the 2008 MTV Movie Awards which will be aired on Sunday, June 1. Commenting on the works of 41-year-old, MTV Networks President Van Toffler spoke nothing but good things about them stating, "A thirtysomething waterboy, a brokenhearted '80s wedding singer and a rejected hockey player turned pro golfer...now that's an impressive resume."
Directed by Dennis Dugan, "Zohan" follows a story of an Israel Intelligence Agent who fakes his death to pursue his dream of becoming a hairstylist. The Mossad agent then moves to New York City and takes off the challenging new task, learning how to be a good hairstylist. When he finally gets a grip on his new job, his past catches up with him. The Columbia Pictures is set to hit the big screen on June 6.
