Chanukkah isn't over yet! There's still time to celebrate those eight crazy nights with "the baddest Heeb this side of Tel Aviv" for free on SlashControl.The Hebrew Hammer, starring the only dude who could make modified side curls sexy, Adam Goldberg, is a comedy that takes its cues from '70s movies like Sweet Sweetback's Baadasssss Song and Shaft and but has more in common with take-offs on the Blaxploitation genre like Black Dynamite.

Mordechai Jefferson Carver (Goldberg) and his buddy Mohammed Ali Paula Abdul Rahim (Mario Van Peebles*) band together with Hebrew hottie Esther Bloomenbergensteinenthal (the adorable Judy Greer, aka Kitty Sanchez from Arrested Development) to fight Santa's wayward son, played by Andy Dick. Can Morchechai and his buddies save the tribe from a boozy Santa Jr. in an ugly sweater? Will Esther and Mordy make it a double mitzvah on the Sabbath? Maybe! Watch it on SlashControl now.

* Mario Van Peebles' father Melvin wrote, directed, produced, and starred in Sweet Sweetback's Baadasssss Song, and Mario played the young Sweetback in the movie. Mario also adapted his father's book How to Get the Man's Foot Outta Your Ass into an homage and sort of documentary by the same name, otherwise known as Baadasssss! Mario Van Peebles played his dad in the movie.
