Consensus: A dumb, goofy, and vacuous adaptation of a TV show where plot is simply an excuse to string together the car chases.

Good, stupid fun.

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

Joshua Starnes

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.

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.

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.

There's really nothing to enjoy here other than a lot of stale dialogue, and a pitiful grab for a franchise.

It's got a few laughs and some impressive car chases, but mostly, it's just a puzzling jumble of gags and exhaust fumes.

Joe Williams

The Dukes of Hazzard does such a textbook job of pandering to Bubba Q. Public that it ought to run for political office.

Leslie Felperin

If rubber-burning car chases and short shorts are your thing, this is the summer remake for you.

A stupid, idiotic, ridiculous film that has no reason to exist apart from to cash in on a classic TV Series. Dumb, meaningless fun when your bored at best.
