Storyline

Mordechai Jefferson Carver, aka the Hebrew Hammer, is an orthodox Jewish stud who goes on a mission to save Hanukkah. When Santa Claus's evil son Damian is pushed over the edge by his father's liberal policies, he does away with the Christian patriarch. Subsequently stepping into his father's role, Damian launches a campaign to eradicate the Jewish Holiday. The Hammer joins forces with Esther Bloomenbergensteinenthal, the gorgeous and dangerous daughter of the leader of the Jewish Justice League; and his brother-in-arms Mohammed Ali Paula Abdul Rahim, the head of the Kwanzaa Liberation Front, to topple Santa's evil progeny and to save Hanukkah for future generations of Jews. Written by Sujit R. Varma

Trivia

The original script called for a cameo from US Senator Joe Lieberman (I-Con), but Lieberman turned it down, so the role went to former New York City mayor Ed Koch, who was recruited at the last minute by one of the producers. See more »

Goofs

When the Hebrew Hammer travels from Ben-Gurion Airport to Jerusalem, the road in the desert is bisected by yellow lines. Roads in Israel, however, are bisected by white lines. The scene was actually shot in the Joshua Tree desert in California, and the actual road from Ben-Gurion Airport to Jerusalem is a major highway, not a two-lane road. See more »

Hebraic hilarity--I could watch it repeatedly
26 December 2003 | by (Greenwich Village, NY) – See all my reviews

I can't get over this movie. I watched it once (on Comedy Central), and despite the fact that the sides were cut off (it was not made for TV), and the many expletives were deleted, and I had to skip through commercials, I thought it was brilliant and hilarious. I've made tapes of it to share with my non-cabled friends. Now it's playing in theatres, and I'm tempted to see it again.

Now, maybe you've got to be Jewish to love this film, and maybe you've also got to have been brought up in a Catholic town (as I was), and maybe you've got to have felt the sting of everyone else celebrating Christmas while you've got this lousy holiday based on a rather tepid myth (the Chanukah story), but, even if the movie was made just for me, it was a great movie. I give it a 10.
