Film Critic Quote of the Day

"[Dukes of Hazzard] is a stool sample in movie form, proudly trashy and juvenile and lacking even the lowest sorts of invention. Incredibly, it makes the original CBS series—a weekly rehash of the then-current hit film Smokey and the Bandit—seem charming in retrospect...In place of the TV series' willful innocence, director Jay Chandrasekhar substitutes a contemporary equivalent of Laurel and Hardy/Three Stooges slapstick, including a scene where Bo clings to safe that's being dragged by a car, a moment where Luke teases Bo by attacking him with a blowtorch, and numerous groin injuries"
