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

Folks from this side of the Mason-Dixon line may be more forgiving of this sometimes fun, if often mindless, bit of entertainment.

Sure, it's simple but for a longtime Dukes of Hazzard fan, it's a funny and nostalgic dose of Southern comfort.

You can't blame the millions who will fantasize about Gen. Sherman burning the movie's negative, but when it comes to the home market, this will be a good one for its target audience to pass out to.

Delivering exactly what it promises -- car chasing, girl gazing and yee-hawing -- it takes the high road to low art by remaining faithful to the TV series that spawned it.

Fans of the television show will find a lot to like here. So will fans of the Broken Lizard comedy troupe.

It boasts a few good laughs, a few cool action sequences and a few gratuitous eye candy shots that will have Nick Lachey punching holes in a wall.

Injecting enough solid laughs and car chases to make Dukes precisely what it is - an uncomplicated Friday night distraction.

There were two big boobs I wanted to see in this movie, and they weren't Johnny Knoxville and Seann William Scott.

It's simple, kinda crass and more fun than jumping into the creek while Daisy is skinny dipping.

This is one unusual case in which aiming for a middling C grade turns out to be A-plus work.

A decent-enough rambunctious Southern-drive-in sort of time-waster.

Big dumb fun. You can actually feel yourself getting stupider while watching it- but it's such a sunny, upbeat, eager-to-please movie, the silliness becomes infectious.

"The Dukes" are back... and the film happily hits the right balance between stupid and fun: you know, everything we loved about the television show.

Assuming that someone was determined to remake this mediocre but iconic TV show, this is probably as good as it's going to get.
