Movie Review - The Hammer

What kind of movie do you want? Sports movie? Underdog movie? Comedy? This movie is all of these and more! Bring your lady along, the love story is in there too, and that part is cute. It's been a while since I've really laughed out loud during a movie. I am the kind of person who laughs to myself, doesn't really give the "ha ha!" sort of laugh, but I definitely was during this movie.
Are you a fan of Adam Carolla? If so, you should definitely go see this. You already know what to expect in terms of the type of humor. Typical Adam humor fills this movie. But beyond that, there are plenty of scenese of good visual comedy. One scene that sticks in my mind shows Adam doing jumprope in the gym when his lady friend walks in and watches him. He's jumping along to the tune of The Mighty Mighty Bosstones playing "Rascal King," and he starts to show off a little bit for his girl (Heather Juergensen). The scene cuts to watching Adam from her perspective, and since she's just standing in the gym, there's no music. It's hard to describe, but you really have to see it to appreciate how funny it is.
If you are in one of the markets where this movie is playing, then go see it!!! To find out if it's playing near you, go to
