The gist: A positively pimpin’ Jewish detective has to try and save Hanukkah from being destroyed by the newly appointed, totally corrupt Santa Claus.
Naughty or nice: NAUGHTY! I mean, it satirizes both Christmas and Hanukkah. Also, it features around eight days worth of openly sexual innuendos, violence and general stereotypical offensiveness.
Why it gets us in the spirit: It’s a highly unique take on the festive season that celebrates those of us who are sick of all these overzealous, G-rated Xmas flicks and or don’t celebrate the thing to begin with.
Magic moment:When the Hammer (Adam Goldberg) waltzes into a Nazi bar and plows down the antisemitic inhabitants with two humungous shotguns and a “Shabbat shalom, motherfuckers!”
Santa sighting: There’s a whole bunch and they ain’t pretty. Santa is depicted as a dirty, greedy, spoiled douchebag. Needless to say, he’s played by a red-suited Andy Dick.
Accompanying carol: Why, the Hebrew Hammer theme song, of course! “Who’s the certified, circumcised dick that’s a sex machine to all the chicks? Hammer, Amen!”
Perfect present for:Your Jewish BFF. Or anyone who likes their blaxploitation films to keep it Kosher.[youtube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3VDs5OPa7Ng]
