The Dukes of Hazzard (2005)
Not a great movie, but not a bad one either
The Dukes Of Hazzard wasn't a bad movie unto itself, but it wasn't a masterpiece ahead of its time. I to was a fan of the original series, I own season 1-5 on DVD and watch the reruns of it on CMT or where ever they may air, but I didn't have a huge problem with it. Broken Lizard could have done a lot worse than what they did with it, it was just a movie which was unrestrained free to say or do whatever they wanted and go in direction thy like to see. If Broken Lizard and Jay Chaz (or however you say his name or spell it) wanted to, he could have made this the biggest piece of white trash garbage that he wanted it to be, he could have made Daisy Duke a complete dits and Bo and Luke white trash, barefoot country bumpkins who never left Hazzard and gone to the big city. I thought the movie was very entertaining, it didn't make me double over with laughter, but it was what it was which was a "leave your brains at the door" type of movie which isn't that bad. Most people wanna say that it was disrespectful to the original series, but let us not forget that the first season of the original series had Bo Duke making a joke about how if he and Daisy weren't related he'd marry her and she cracks back by saying "That's never stopped anyone in this family before" and another having Boss Hogg convince Bo and Luke to transport a dangerous criminal and not caring if they got killed. Yes the characters in the movie could have stayed truer to the characters of the TV show, but for what its worth it wasn't as bad as I or maybe everyone else thought it was. The movie had some hit and miss moments but over all I would watch on TV or maybe buy it on DVD if it was on sale because as I said it was a very entertaining movie, not a great Oscar award winning movie of course, but just something fun to watch.
