The General Lee is back and so are the Duke boys in this big-screen adaptation of the hit TV series, brought to you by Jay Chandrasekhar of the Broken Lizard comedy troupe. Set in the "present day," the story follows Bo (Seann William Scott) and Luke (Johnny Knoxville) as they cruise around Hazzard County and wreck havoc in their classic 1969 Dodge Charger. Together with their scantily clad cousin Daisy (Jessica Simpson) and moonshining Uncle Jesse (Willie Nelson), the two good old boys battle the corrupt county commissioner Boss Hog (Burt Reynolds) when he and local Sheriff Roscoe… More

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Good, stupid fun."
‑ Jonathan Rosenbaum, Chicago Reader
"I hated this movie. It represents everything that's wrong with the studio system."
‑ Richard Roeper, Ebert & Roeper
"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."
‑ Joshua Starnes,
"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."
‑ Garth Franklin, Dark Horizons
"This must rank as one of the most hollowly formulaic hot-weather blockbusters ever let out of the can."
‑ David Noh, Film Journal International
"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."
‑ Ben Walters, Time Out
"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."
‑ Eyder Peralta, Houston Chronicle
"There's really nothing to enjoy here other than a lot of stale dialogue, and a pitiful grab for a franchise."
‑ Felix Vasquez Jr., Cinema Crazed
"Hillbilly Heaven, if you even want to go there."
‑ Kam Williams, Upstage Magazine
"Don't bother with this movie. If you're just itching for more Dukes, stick to the original series on DVD."
‑ Mary Lasse, Christianity Today
"It's got a few laughs and some impressive car chases, but mostly, it's just a puzzling jumble of gags and exhaust fumes."
‑ Keith Phipps, AV Club
"The Dukes of Hazzard does such a textbook job of pandering to Bubba Q. Public that it ought to run for political office."
‑ Joe Williams, St. Louis Post-Dispatch
"If rubber-burning car chases and short shorts are your thing, this is the summer remake for you."
‑ Leslie Felperin, Film4
"The movie goes extra lite on the comic fluff, while doing the usual heavy handed thing when it comes to hayseed caricatures."
‑ Prairie Miller, Long Island Press
" can't say the movie isn't lively, like a big old-fashioned Warner Bros. cartoon."
‑ John J. Puccio, Movie Metropolis
