Today marks the official start of Hanukkah, so happy Hanukkah to any and all Jewish friends out there. In an attempt to learn more about the holiday, I recently watched The Hebrew Hammer. Adam Goldberg stars as an orthodox Jewish hero nicknamed the Hebrew Hammer who is on a mission to save Hanukkah after Damian Claus (son of Santa) vows to eradicate the holiday after murdering his father and seizing control of Christmas. Unfortunately I didn't learn much about Hanukkah from this movie, but I did learn a lot about what makes a movie bad. After sitting through the whole mess, I decided to go to Wikipedia instead, hopefully the entry there is accurate.
