Dammit, I hate being so easily amused. Iím not saying
that because of that Iím going to recommend "The Dukes of
Hazzard," ah hell no, even though I did get a good chuckle,
but before you hand over your hard earned cash for a ticket
for this flick, youíd better be doing so expecting some
pretty bad dialogue that might make you laugh or groan, you
wonít see nearly as much of Jessica Simpson as you figured
you might have, and expect an hour and a half movie that
could have been turned into your standard one hour episode.
The Dukes of Hazzard
A Movie Review
The basic story goes like thisÖ
Bo and Luke Duke return to the screen, this time played
by Stiffler and Jackass. Okay, Iím sorry, that joke is too
easy. Seann William Scott plays Bo and Johnny Knoxville
plays Luke. Theyíre running moonshine for Uncle Jessie
(Willie Nelson), usually one step ahead of the Sheriff, and
always messing with the plans of Boss Hogg, this time played
by Burt Reynolds. As this story goes, the Duke boys canít
figure out why one of the townís most famous sons has
returned to race again in their little road race, nor why
Boss Hogg is going around planting problems on farms so that
the county can confiscate them, including Uncle Jessie's
farm. So itís up to our heroes, along with Daisy (Jessica
Simpson), to figure out what is going on, and of course, to
save the day with only seconds to spare. In doing so they
wreak havoc with a safe, make their way to Atlanta to get
some soil samples studied, hook-up with some college girls,
and piss of the neighborhood gang members with their car
sporting the Confederate Flag and soot covered faces (yes,
that is the kind of humor you can expect).
This movie isnít rocket science, isnít meant to win any
awards, and pretty much has as cheesy a story as one of the
television episodes that I barely remember. The dialogue is
pretty inane, the car chases donít really break any new
ground, but for some reason I actually liked Scottís and
Knoxvilleís portrayal of the loveable Bo and Luke Duke.
Sure, they turn this movie a little more risquť, complete
with college girls in skimpy outfits, some bong usage with
said college girls, and some smoking of something with the
Governor, but hell, it's not 1980 anymore.
I will agree with most critics and say this movie is
pretty useless, but I did laugh a little. In the end Iíll
give it 1 Ĺ stars out of 5. The teens around me seemed to
find it funnier, and I am easily amused, so take what I say
with a grain of salt. You will get exactly the dorky movie
you probably expect if you go and see "The Dukes of Hazzard,"
so just sit back and enjoy that.
Thatís it for this one! Iím The Dude on the Right!!
