Rating & Content Info
Why is You Don’t Mess With The Zohan rated PG-13? You Don’t Mess With The Zohan is rated PG-13 by the MPAA The MPAA has rated You Don't Mess With the Zohan PG-13 for crude and sexual content throughout, language and nudity.
In this story of an Israeli counter-terrorist who comes to the United States to pursue his dream of becoming a hairdresser, Adam Sandler’s script offers his usual non-stop litany of sexual innuendo, derogatory remarks and comedic violence. Nearly every scene in this film has references to sexual activities, anatomy or scatology. His character is always portrayed with a large bulge in his pants, which is the focus of repeated jokes and comments. One scene depicts a man and a woman having sex while partially clothed. In other scenes, women are seduced by a man who then takes them to a closed room and then sexual sounds are heard. A man is seen completely naked from the rear in at least three shots, and from the front with objects covering his genital area. Women are seen in bikinis. Violence is played for laughs, but includes non-explicit terrorist shootings and explosions. A man’s hand is cut off, and we see the dismembered part moving around on the floor. A man uses supposed combat techniques to injure people, including breaking their fingers and twisting their bodies into pretzel shapes. A man stabs himself in the leg with a pair of scissors. Multiple derogatory terms are heard toward ethnic groups and homosexuals. Other language includes one clear sexual expletive and another word that is repeatedly spoken with an accent so it sounds like a sexual expletive. Other crude words for sex are included, along with frequent scatological terms, terms of deity, other moderate and mild profanities, and crude anatomical references. Animal cruelty is depicted, with characters punching a cow, eating live baby chicks and kicking a cat around like a hackey sack.
