The Hammer is a hilarious new comedy starring and written by The Man Show's Adam Carolla about a guy who's dull life as a construction worker is getting worse every day until he knocks out a prize fighter in the ring. Thus begins his quest for Olympic gold, despite he's quite old and no longer a professional boxer. Like Meet Bill before it, here's another guy's movie about a guy whose life is just falling apart. Adam Carolla may actually bring something unique to this movie, but also like Meet Bill, this could go either way. It doesn't look like anything I'll fall in love with, but it could bring a few laughs. What do you think?
Watch the trailer for The Hammer:
The Hammer is directed by Charles Herman-Wurmfeld (Kissing Jessica Stein, Legally Blonde 2) with a script by Kevin Hench ("The Man Show", "Jimmy Kimmel Live!") and story by Adam Carolla. The film premiered last year the Tribeca Film Festival but without much buzz. The Hammer arrives in very limited theaters on March 21st. A small version of the poster for the film is featured below.
User comment: By: Tom BrazeltonThat Ozzie guy I think was on the reality show Carrola did a few years back where he remodeled his childhood home, or something?
Actually, I think "Ozzie" will be the funniest thing about this movie.
Spider, you cant compare this movie/actor to BORAT? really? apples and oranges dude. The only thing that is similar about this and Borat is that they both have fat, stubby side kicks. Oh wait Carolla doesnt, NOTHING similar. Sorry Spidey, you should probably get one of your "senses" checked out.
User comment: By: SpiderLooks like quirky, low budget fun with a few laughs. "Borat" had a handheld camera, low budget looking trailer too and it hit big. On the other hand, Adam Carolla is untested and unproven in all areas of film, but he does have some funny moments being himself. It would be interesting to see if Jimmy Kimmel and/or Dr. Drew Pinsky get a cameo in this movie. Adam Carolla's 'Dancing With The Stars' stint should attract some publicity to this flick.
User comment: By: OwlBoyIt looks amazingly bad based on that poorly made trailer. Adam Carolla appears to not be able to act in a very broad way.
User comment: By: JoseThe film looks horrible. The trailer isn't that great. I just don't know about this one at all.
