Synopsis: Rapping fool in parachute pants returns to hometown and spontaneously breaks into song-and dance-numbers as he rids the community of drugs.
Blurb From the VHS Jacket: “M.C. HAMMER has slammed right past the title of mere ‘rap master’ to become one of the new decade’s top entertainers... ‘PLEASE HAMMER DON’T HURT ‘EM’ is no simple clip compilation, or breezily constructed mix of concert shots and backstage interviews.”
What Did I Learn?: 1) (M.C.) Hammer didn’t really dance so much as jump around a lot.
You Might Like This Movie If: You grew up watching ‘Hammer Man on Saturday mornings:
Really?: M.C. Hammer convinces the neighbourhood drug kingpin to: a) shut down his crack houses, b) stop selling drugs and c) spend a huge chunk of his fortune on charities and a benefit concert by yelling at him.
Rating: Preachy, pretentious and preposterous. 1/10 stars.
