user submitted pictureThe Hebrew Hammer arrived from Netflix yesterday, starring the surprisingly studly Adam Goldberg (who delivered our favorite line from Dazed and Confused: “I’m just trying to be honest about being a misanthrope”) as a tough rebel heeb saddled with the task of saving Chanukah from a sadistic Santa (played as a coke-snorting psycho by the ever-disturbing Andy Dick- not exactly a stretch.) All in all, it’s a hilarious piece of satire that’s already a cult classic, so any self-respecting Jewish hipster ought to view it a few times for the quotables.
Also on the DVD is the original short by director Jonathan Kesselman, not to be missed.
