You Don't Mess with the Zohan

Deliberate mistake: When Zohan and Phantom are seen on the Palestine beach competing about which one is the tougher, they let themselves get bitten by a piranha to prove their point. While piranha are by legend very vicious fish, its presence here is a two-fold mistake, for a) piranhas are found in South America, and b) they are fresh water fish. (I know that this is for pure humour, but the writers should have picked a rabid crab or something; that would be more appropriate for the setting.).

Continuity mistake: During the opening credits, Zohan walks surrounded by girls. On the far left of the screen is a girl with a green bikini and large sunglasses. When the angle changes she's suddenly moved to the far right end of the screen.

Trivia: Paul Mitchell actually died in 1989. As an inside joke, the man portraying him when he talks to the Zohan on the phone is his business partner John Paul Dejoria. Dejoria has been the face of the Paul Mitchell company since Paul Mitchell's death, which has caused many people to believe that Dejoria is Paul Mitchell.
