The Dukes of Hazzard only works during the chase sequences, and just sits there the rest of the time. There are some moments of inspired visual lunacy, but that's it.

There's really nothing to enjoy here other than a lot of stale dialogue, and a pitiful grab for a franchise.

Good, stupid fun.

If rubber-burning car chases and short shorts are your thing, this is the summer remake for you.

You can't say those involved in the film didn't have fun -- sure looks like they had a blast. Shame is as an audience we can't say the same.

Hillbilly Heaven, if you even want to go there.

The movie goes extra lite on the comic fluff, while doing the usual heavy handed thing when it comes to hayseed caricatures.

This must rank as one of the most hollowly formulaic hot-weather blockbusters ever let out of the can.

Don't bother with this movie. If you're just itching for more Dukes, stick to the original series on DVD.

...you can't say the movie isn't lively, like a big old-fashioned Warner Bros. cartoon.

Jay Chandrasekhar (of the unfunny comedy troupe Broken Lizard) directs without wit or style.

Whether you find all this inane or offensive will probably depend on whether you buy the Dukes' defence of 'never meaning no harm'; either way it's pretty hard going.

The only thing The Dukes of Hazzard has in abundance is hate.

Instead of the promised lighthearted tone of the TV series, the big screen update avails itself of its PG-13 liberties and comes stuffed with a barnful of profanity and enough marijuana references to satisfy even the most stoned out Cheech and Chong fan.

It's got a few laughs and some impressive car chases, but mostly, it's just a puzzling jumble of gags and exhaust fumes.

Não é apenas sem graça; é, também, moralmente ofensivo, sendo povoado por personagens desprezíveis, ignorantes e preconceituosos (o que inclui os 'heróis').

A spirited, high energy romp that is naught but yee-haw nonsense, The Dukes of Hazzard is a rev a second.

[Jessica Simpson] literally couldn't act if her life depended on it - she appears to only be there to provide eye candy and, frankly, she's not all that attractive in the first place.

It's either hell being a hillbilly or a hell of a lot of fun being a hillbilly. Here, it's hell.

Comes reasonably close to [being] finger-licking good.
