You can only credit the director for so much, it takes the talent from in front of the camera to really pull a film together. The feeling that actors have when doing a project definitely comes through the screen and onto the audience. Take Stepford Wives for example. You could tell that Kidman had no excitement on doing this project, and it consequently was horrible. I was never interested in Kidman's character because if she didn't care, why should I bother. This was not the case with The Hebrew Hammer. Goldberg was having a blast playing this zany yet kind character that cares more about his faith than anyone in the entire world. His eyes told the story, and allowed us to really follow this "leader" blindly into uncharted territory. I am an enormous fan of Andy Dick, not only does he carry my name, but he also bring to the screen his one style of comedy. He is notorious for being who he is, and while others may find him annoying, I only see him as comic genius a la Robin Williams.Read more ›
If you do not like satirical humour, directed at *everyone*, DO NOT buy or view this movie.
If you loved Monty Python's "Life of Brian", "Meaning of Life", or Mel Brooks triumphs such as the "The Inquisition" and "Springtime for Hitler" musical numbers, and other such wonderful potshots at people who take themselves WAY too seriously, then this is a movie for you.
I am very very happy that this is finally being released, just in time for some celebratory viewing during Hanukkah.
If you want some good humor, and feel like taking a break from a hectic day, watch this!
This film pulls no punches and is equal-opportunity when it comes to poking fun. So if you're ready for some political incorrectness and a lot of laughter, this is the movie to see!
i'm a jew who was raised mormon (pray for me) so somethings were lost to me specificly. but i have that friend, the orthodox jew, who has the overbearing, stereotypical, jewish mom. and he is now the woody allen type neurodic. then this movie made total sense. and it was funnier then ever. all of my jewish friends had that mom. and so did the hebrew hammer.
this movies is full of the stereo types, and every stereotype has a bit of truth to it (or they wouldn't exist in the first place), and this movie used them all. but not to alienate any one specific group. it starts and ends with a multicultural colaboration.
i loved this movie. it was funny, it's not pc, it pokes fun at everyone. it was not meant to be taken seriously. and at the end, everyone learns a lesson. just the way a holiday movies should be.

It's camp! It's crazy! It's a must for people who love Jewish humor and especially for those who treasure Chanukah, even if it isn't a "high holiday" as the Hebrew Hammer's... Read morePublished 2 months ago by Wordmonger
Perfectly Silly in the tradition of Mel Brooks. Lots of ethnic jokes made in the spirit of good friends making fun of each other or Phyllis Diller making fun of herself. Read morePublished 2 months ago by Luca Boyd
