But it has Burt Reynolds, Willie Nelson AND a Basset Hound
So this was supposed to be a 400 word review of the new Dukes of Hazzard movie. Unfortunately, Blogger was undergoing "routine maintenance" during the six o'clock hour earlier tonight and my post was deleted when I hit "publish." Here instead is a short review and a series of Dukes-related links.
It's hard to hate a movie that features Willie Nelson tossing jars of flaming moonshine at squad cars. The makers didn't go the post-modern route, stayed true to the original series and, with the exception of a tremendously misguided sequence in Atlanta, this is a future late night hipster classic. It's so bad it's gone back to good only to head back to bad only to grazes good again before making another pit stop at bad and finally landing a few feet within the Good County line.
