Vietnow 5 - The Hebrew Hammer stars Adam Goldberg, Judy Greer, Andy Dick, Mario Van Peebles, and Peter Coyote.
The plot concerns a Jewish superhero known as The Hebrew Hammer who must save Hanukkah from the evil son of Santa Claus who wants to destroy Hanukkah and make everyone celebrate Christmas, and eat fruit.
The film is set up as a parody of blaxploitation films such as: Full Metal Jacket. Director Jonathan Kesselman has jokingly dubbed it the first "Jewsploitation". But is it much more than that!
The film premiered at the Sundance Film Festival, and appeared at several other film festivals, Jewish and otherwise, during 2003.
This version of the movie was edited for television: all profanities were bleeped, and some scenes were cut. The DVD, will be released, and contains the uncut version, which is rated R.
