The Dukes of Hazzard Reviews

April 22, 2008
Good, stupid fun.
February 9, 2006
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.
September 26, 2005
It's got a few laughs and some impressive car chases, but mostly, it's just a puzzling jumble of gags and exhaust fumes.
August 8, 2005
I hated this movie. It represents everything that's wrong with the studio system.
August 7, 2005
After the first chase scene, it's obvious that Scott and Knoxville don't have enough charisma to carry the film, or to even make anarchic destruction and evading the law into something if not sexy at least endearing.
August 5, 2005
The Dukes of Hazzard does such a textbook job of pandering to Bubba Q. Public that it ought to run for political office.

Like most movies based on old television shows, Dukes is all concept, with a few jokes written into its crevices.
August 5, 2005
So loud, so long, so dumb.
August 5, 2005
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.

August 5, 2005
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.

August 5, 2005
The Dukes of Hazzard is just plain awful.

August 5, 2005
In stiff competition for the lamest thing ever put on celluloid.

August 5, 2005
The Dukes of Hazzard feels like Hollywood's last idea, a wan desperate wave of red meat redneck humor marketed to red state America.

August 5, 2005
For a movie that posits itself as a celebration of rebel excess, Dukes is pretty tame.

Why fans of the series would pay good money to see something they can see free in TV reruns escapes me.

There's no reason for these good ol' boys to be in a movie this bad.

August 5, 2005
In lieu of a movie, we get a series of car chases rudely interrupted by the occasional smattering of dialogue.

August 5, 2005
Amazing. Incredible. Unbelievable. Astonishing. Painful. All these words come to mind in just the first 10 minutes of viewing this film, none of them in a good way.

August 5, 2005
Purports to be a remake of a TV show but is more accurately a remake of Jessica's vapid modeling career.
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/4
August 5, 2005
The storyline is so dumb and predictable it wouldn't have even made the grade for an episode of the original TV series.
August 5, 2005
The Dukes of Hazzard is a cheap, greasy time at the multiplex.

August 5, 2005
Has some of the same fratty energy as Wedding Crashers.

The Dukes of Hazzard aims awfully low.

Not even a sexy, toned and blossomed blond can distract from the vapid ugliness that is The Dukes of Hazzard.

August 5, 2005
Hard to imagine a movie more mind-numbingly pointless and instantly forgettable.

August 5, 2005
There's a stink coming off the big-screen Dukes of Hazzard that even fans of the TV series (1979 to 1985) won't be able to shake out of their nostrils.

August 4, 2005
This is one unusual case in which aiming for a middling C grade turns out to be A-plus work.
August 4, 2005
A decent-enough rambunctious Southern-drive-in sort of time-waster.
August 4, 2005
The Dukes of Hazzard is the latest evidence that, for Hollywood studios at least, there can never be too much of a mediocre thing.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/5
August 4, 2005
Motorheads who want nothing more than a handful of chase sequences may enjoy The Dukes of Hazzard, but everyone else should observe the cautionary yellow flag.
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/4
August 4, 2005
A movie about absolutely nothing (eat your heart out, Seinfeld), based on a show made when your target audience wasn't even born yet. And they say Hollywood is running out of ideas.
Full Review | Original Score: D
August 4, 2005
The film is marginal for what it is -- a takeoff on a farce. There are only so many layers of sendup until the movie simply spins in the mud, kicking up gravel but going nowhere.

August 4, 2005
With no plot, character or dialogue worth experiencing, let alone remembering, the film merely occupies space on the screen and hopes for the best.

Straight viewing could result in brain damage.

August 4, 2005
A weird, moonshine-and- marijuana-fueled yee-haw fest based on the '80s TV show.

August 4, 2005
It's as dumb as a bag of hammers and as cheesy as, well, macaroni and cheese. But it's a movie that knows how inconsequential it is at the outset and doesn't care much whether you can party with it or not.

August 4, 2005
As a salvo in the culture wars, Dukes of Hazzard is a dud, and as an actual movie it doesn't rate much higher.
August 4, 2005
It's every bit as bad as you thought it'd be. Only worse.

A lame-brained, outdated wheeze.

August 3, 2005
A comedy that knows just how smart to be about just how dumb it is.

August 2, 2005
Assuming that someone was determined to remake this mediocre but iconic TV show, this is probably as good as it's going to get.
August 2, 2005
Prepare to witness an amazing feat of filmmaking: Shocked and delighted will you be to see real Hollywood actors and real musicians outperformed by your favorite inanimate objects!
August 1, 2005
Nowhere to be found here is any of the goofy charm of the original.
