The Hebrew Hammer

The irony of Jesus being Jewish is he'd likely celebrate Hanukkah over Christmas.

However, this comedy speaks to the other Christmas mascot.

Bullied as a kid for his beliefs, Mordechai grows up to protect Jews from persecution as The Hebrew Hammer (Adam Goldberg).

When his services are needed by the black community to help stop Santa's son (Andy Dick) from eradicating Kwanzaa, Hammer is hesitate until he learns those plans include Hanukkah as well.

Backed by the leader of the Kwanzaa Liberation Front (Mario Van Peebles), the chief of the Jewish Justice League (Peter Coyote) and the chief's daughter (Judy Greer), The Hebrew Hammer hunts down Damian.

With a surprisingly funny performance from Andy Dick, The Hebrew Hammer is a self- deprecating spoof of every religious observance in December with the streetwise sensibilities of a 1970s blaxploitation film.

Besides, without Kwanzaa and Hanukkah decorations retailers would have half of a shelf to fill.
