When Andy Dick's Damien Santa decides to wage war against Hannukah-celebrating Jews and Kwanzaa-observing African-Americans, the fate of the non-Gentiles is put in the hands of detective Mordechai Jefferson Carver (a.k.a. the main character in Jonathan Kesselman's The Hebrew Hammer). Described as part man, part street, and 100 percent kosher, the Hammer (Adam Goldberg) rallies his Christmas-free compadres for international battle, meets total babe Esther Bloomenbergensteinenthal (Judy Greer), and sets out on a profanity-laden, not at all PC adventure.
Whatever the hell you celebrate, you're welcome to attend FilmBar's screening of the 2003 Jewsploitation comedy at 812 North Second Street. Though, with a nod toward the unorthodox, show-goers are encouraged to sport their best/worst ugly holiday sweater for a chance to win a Hebrew Hammer prize pack. Tickets are $9 to the 21-and-over screening at 6 p.m. Sunday, December 22. Visit www.thefilmbarphx.com or call 602-595-9187.
