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.

Anyone who doesn't love the Dukes and their repetitive adventures won't find much of interest, and anyone who does is better off watching old episodes on CMT.

The Dukes of Hazzard feels like Hollywood's last idea, a wan desperate wave of red meat redneck humor marketed to red state America.

Burt Reynolds fired his agent after Boogie Nights. If he has a lick of sense in his head, he'll kill his agent after Dukes of Hazzard.

Flatter than a two-lane blacktop, the movie is awfully unfunny, which it compensates for by being awfully loud.

It all backfires worse than the General Lee before a tune-up by Cooter.

Heck, suck the exhaust fumes from a 1969 orange Dodge Charger. But whatever you do, no matter how big a fan you were of the show, do yourself a favor by skipping the movie.

I hated this movie. It represents everything that's wrong with the studio system.

Features low-rent humor and high-speed chases.

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

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.

Considering how funny it could have been -- either as a faithful big-screen adaptation or as a winking parody -- this sloppy mix of both styles is a disappointment.

Super Troopers, Club Dread, and now this. Chandrasekhar cannot be stopped.

So loud, so long, so dumb.

A lunch box in cinematic form: another half-assed excuse to slap a label on something and shill it to the crowd.

The remake truly represents the most evil of Hollywood ideals, and tarnishes a south-of-the-border television treat that is still standing over 25 years later.

This foolhardy Hazzard upgrade may be appealing to its TV fans. Or it could just remind you how ridiculous it was the show ran for six seasons in the first place.
