The Dukes of Hazzard Movie Review
Not even Jessica Simpson may be worth it. "Dukes of Hazzard," a film adaptation of a television show that, frankly, never needed to be adapted, is a lackluster comedy at best, not necessarily intolerable to watch but not very good at all, either.
The movie focuses on Luke and Bo Duke, played by Johnny Knoxville and Seann William Scott, who take on a bunch of corrupt cops and Boss Hogg (Burt Reynolds) in their small hick town, and... well, that's about the entire plot. That's all fine and good, but the movie really isn't all that funny despite the talent involved - if you consider Scott and Knoxville talent.
This is one of those movies that was made because of the television show but little thought was put into actually making the movie worthwhile. It is never terrible but has so little to offer that you might as well just not watch it. Sure, Jessica Simpson looks hot as Daisy Duke, but she looks hot elsewhere. You might as well just download a few pictures of her and you'll be good to go.
"The Dukes of Hazzard" could have been worse, but it could have been much, much better. Simpson in a bikini is not enough to save this boring film.
