Entertainment Weekly
It's trash, all right, but perfectly skewed trash -- a comedy that knows just how smart to be about just how dumb it is.

Variety
Loud, silly but kind of lame-brained fun with car chases aplenty, "Dukes" faithfully plays like an extended episode of the series, albeit with an additional gallon or so of fuel-injected raunchiness.

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

Manages to rocket along at full speed. At the same time, however, the movie feels as if it's not going anywhere at all.

The Hollywood Reporter
A bigger-louder-dumber take on that good ol' CBS hillbilly hit, the movie version of "The Dukes of Hazzard" starts off on the wrong foot and keeps heading, appropriately, south.

There's nothing wrong with Simpson's performance that a head transplant wouldn't cure, and the grinning Reynolds looks Botoxed into immobility.

Village Voice
Dukes insults not "family values," as the original Cooter claims, just general intelligence. Yee. Haw.

L.A. Weekly
Director Jay Chandrasekhar (Super Troopers, Club Dread) does a fine job with the car jumps. Just try to wake up whenever you hear "Yee-haw."

ReelViews
Straight viewing could result in brain damage.

Dallas Observer
The movie's so unfunny, it almost appears to be that way on purpose, kind of like an Ingmar Bergman film.
