I thought this movie was Okay. It had it's funny parts, stupid parts and just boring parts. It's the kind of movie that's fun to watch once and that's about it.

Really Bad (and this from a fan of the show)

"I was a fan of the original TV show, but don't remember much of it, since I was in grade school at the time and haven't caught any reruns on cable. For sentimental reasons, I gave the "Dukes of Hazzard" movie a chance. It was worse than I thought it would be. It's not a good bad movie, just a bad movie. On the original show, I seem to recall that bad guys were the dumb ones and the good guys mostly did not act like morons. Here, the situation is reversed. All the while, the South is portrayed as the irretrievably backward place that it is not (which was pretty silly in the 1980s when the show was on, and it is even sillier now). The "Dukes of Hazzard" plays more like an episode of Knoxville's "Jackass" than the old TV show. The Duke boys are unsympathetic and self-destructive, and the stunts are not good enough to make up for a terribly unfunny script. Jessica Simpson carried herself rather well, I thought, and looked great doing it. But the film is truly bad. Fans of the much funnier "Super Troopers" will spot some of that movie's actors here (this film and "Super Troopers" have the same director). And anyone who went to LSU will recognize the campus (which subs for the University of Georgia.) But for the most part, this movie is dumb minus the fun. Spend your money and time on something else."
NOTHING LIKE THE TV SHOW EXCEPT FOR THE STUNTS

"The stunts were cool. That is the only good thing that could be said about this movie. The movie was garabage and not worth watching. All of the characters need their mouths washed out with soap. Nobody in the original series would have used God's name in vain. This movie had unneccessary filthy language throughout. Not suitable for children. An extremely bad excuse for what could and should have been an awesome movie. I was embarrassed and wish I had not wasted my money on something I will never watch again or let anyone borrow. Are there any decent people in Hollywood anymore that make good, clean, fun-loving, silly shows without being filthy? The Dukes of Hazzard TV series was successful because it was mostly clean fun!!!!! This movie should have been the same but sadly was not!!!!!"
HAZZARDOUS Material--Stay Away!

"I'd like to offer some serious film criticism, but this movie really doesn't warrant spending any real time thinking about it. So let's just take a look at the "film" for entertainment value. I smiled exactly once--and that was at a minor character played by James Roday. This film represented everything that is wrong in Hollywood today. Yet, of course, it was a hit--sending out the message that American audiences will embrace anything and that studios should keep making trash. I, in all honesty, could not imagine ANYONE being even slightly amused by the antics of the Dukes. Loud and obnoxious, the greatest sin is that it's not even good enough to be "dumb fun".
