Although I found the first 1/3 engrossing, the second third of the movie went downhill, and the final 1/3 was just plain boring.

The result is of course that it is tiresome and boring instead.

With it's few flaws, it's still a pretty enjoyable movie for any action/comedy fans, or fans of the original series.

My wife is a huge Dukes of Hazzard fan, and I enjoyed it as a kid as well.

The story is a bit unique as it tells the story of how the towns folk started off before the '79 series made its debut, surrounded by the typical Dukes of Hazzard cliché'd plot.

The main reasons I have for not liking this thing at all are 1) predictability - just about everything in this movie goes by the book, and is terribly formulaic 2) the acting - over the top, not very believable 3) the writing, and some of the lines are particularly unbelievable and off putting.

I have only seen bits and pieces of episodes from the original television series and, though it certainly is not the most intelligent piece of televised history, it is still a classic show that is entertaining.

Fun film but rather disjointed .

Please don't waste your time!

This new movie, even with it's minor profanity (which would have worked better omitted, in my opinion), was still a funny and enjoyable movie.

save your money for a really good movie.

Not a true Dukes of Hazzard movie, waste of time, waste of potential.

The scenes they do use seem entirely disjointed.

The two stars are quite bland, and Joel Moore as their mechanic friend Cooter is more annoying than funny.

Don't waste your time you will instantly regret investing any amount of time viewing this p.

The series trademark car chases and jumps are automatically slightly entertaining though.

In Australia this film went straight to DVD and I must don't waste your time watching this.
