Hands-down the funniest movie I have seen since Superbad! Adam Corrolla must be a comic genius. I always thought he was over-shadowed by Jimmy Kimmel on the awesome Man Show (though his "Ask Mr Hardware" bits were always the best), but I guess when the subject matter is this close to home (carpentry and boxing), Adam Corrolla really owns the material and makes it his own. Could have done w/o the love story (felt tacked on), but his performance in the ring very believable.

A wonderful, watchable entertaining movie- Best you've seen

"Carolla and Juergensen have a hit here! The Hammer, loosely based on Adam Carolla's real life as a simple carpenter -- before the his top-rated morning radio show, before his turning-point friendship with now Tonight Show host Jimmy Kimmel, before The Man Show -- is an authentic view into the dreams, doubts and struggles of an average guy trying to make a better life for himself in the tough world of boxing without losing his ethics. Carolla's trademark wit will keep you laughing through the entire movie; the boxing scenes provide enough action for guys; Juergensen as the smart love interest hits just the right note; the entire film simply amuses, delights and charms. Buy This Classic Movie! You will love it regardless of whether you know who Carolla is. I just saw this movie Friday and can't stop smiling and recommending it. Mainstream reviews are uniformly positive; Ebert & gave it 2 thumbs way up!"

"When I heard this was an independent film project by Adam Carolla, I assumed it was going to be at least fun to watch and since I'm a fan of Adam I decided to support him by watching this movie. Let me just say that this movie is the funniest movie I've seen in a long time. Make no mistake with The Hammer, it wasn't simply "better than expected", it is genuinely a great movie, very funny, and very fun to watch.

It's the perfect movie to buy on DVD, because many people haven't seen or heard of it, so when you've got people over at the house looking at your DVD collection, The Hammer is one you're going to convince them to watch every time."

"Dear online movie review diary,

Went to San Diego opening weekend to see a movie starring the Aceman, Adam Carollla. Wait, only two 'L's in Carolla.

Delete! Delete.

My two regrets about the movie are that I only saw it once, and that my hero Tom Brady isn't in it. As it is, it is only the funniest, wittiest, and best movie of the year, be it independent or studio-driven. If you doubled down and added some Brady, it is the perfect film, bar none.

Don't make the same mistake I did, online movie review readers. Buy two copies of the DVD so you can see it twice. It is that funny. Then send one copy each to the Aceman and Tom Brady, asking that they sign and return. When you don't get either copy back, buy another copy for future enjoyment.

P.S. - G.S. Go Sox!"
