Zohan Missed on This

The Dyson the Zohan should have used.

The Dyson the Zohan should have used.

Netflix delivered “You Don’t Mess with the Zohan” the other day.  If you like weirdness and can deal with a movie on its terms and not yours, you, like me, will enjoy Zohan in spite of yourself.

However, someone in the props department needs a stern talking to.   The movie is about a supersoldier’s quest to leave his past life behind and become a hair stylist in America.  Early on, he takes an entry level job in a salon sweeping the floors, and the joke here is that he gets every…single…hair, usually before it hits the floor.

At one point, he switches from broom and dustpan to a Dyson DC16 hand vac, vacuuming the client during the cut.  The DC16 has a cool, high-tech look unlike anything else on the market, so it’s a great choice for a movie.  But Zohan was using the standard DC16, and therein lays the problem.

Everyone knows that if you want a handheld for vacuuming hair, the one you want is the DC16 Animal hand vac.  That model has a motorized brushbar specially designed to pick up hair.

It’s the kind of thing that can really ruin a movie.
