The Dukes of Hazzard

Critics Consensus

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

Movie Info

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 P. Coltrane (M.C. Gainey) threaten to take away the family farm. John O'Brien has the lone writer's credit on the film, though additional uncredited rewrites were handled by the Broken Lizard gang. ~ Jeremy Wheeler, Rovi

  • Good, stupid fun.

  • 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.

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

  • Seems to take pride in being as loud, obnoxious and moronic as humanly possible.

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

    Aug 8, 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.
