Hoping to buck the recent trend of movie remakes based on old TV showz being Box Office Busts, DUKES is counting rather heavily on Jessica Simpson's bust to make it a Box Office Bonanza. If you even bother 2 see it, let us know what YOU think!

I wouldn't judge too heavily on it right now. Remember that Johnny Knoxville and Seann William Scott are part of the film, too. I LOVE Jessica Simpson a lot, however.

Well, the one thing that's going for the movie is the accurate casting.
The only one who can size a movie up by its trailer.

I don't think "Dukes Of Hazzard" is going to be terrible. True, some of the trailers aren't gut-bustingly funny, but that's the good of it though. You show all the funny stuff, it spoils the movie.

We'll just have to see how the reviews fare.

Did anyone catch the interview with the guy who played Cooter (his name is Ben Jones) on the Daily Show?  He was livid about the film and wanted everyone to boycott it.  The show also interviewed the NAACP leader about the film.

Could the movie be as entertaining as that interview?

Amazingly, 13% of American film critics actually gave DUKES good reviews ...Conversely, 87% SLAMMED IT. But if you think about it, more than one-in-ten reviews compiled by WWW.ROTTENTOMATOES.COM  actually LIKED this lame-brained, lotsa-stuff-blowin'-up-real-good, libido-driven drivel. WOW!

FYI: Here's a LINK to the Rotten Tomatoes page 4 DUKES:

I think they're only using Jessica Simpson for the movie to make people actully see it. Seems odd, but it's working...

It's not working THAT well -- Rankings for DUKES on B.O. Mojo ( http://www.boxofficemojo.com/movies/?id=dukesofhazzard.htm ) have 46.9% giving it a D or F, rating, leaving it barely in the year's Top 100. Meanwhile, over at The IMdB, it's getting a below-average 4.3 out of 10 points, and at least one User Comment refers to DUKES as "an absolute disgrace!" (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0377818/ )...

Glad to see that MOST movie-goers aren't being duped by DUKES!!

James Berardinelli slammed this piece of hog-slop but good in his REVIEW, boy howdy!  Here's a LINK check it out for yourself: The Razzies even get a mention!

I just saw elsewhere on this forum that Jessica Simpson in this film and Ashlee Simpson in UNDISCOVERED are not only Ultra-UN-Talented Siblings, but also could BOTH be nominees side-by-side as Worst SUpporting Actress of 2005...COOL!

Okay, I think we can OFFICIALLY call this one TOAST -- According to Box Office Mojo, it's per-screen numbers for Tuesday, September 6 were...$48! That works out to less than 8 PEOPLE in each theatre ALL DAY (with an average of five showings in each theatre).

So...will DUKES be out on DVD this coming Tuesday, or the one after that??

...And when DUKES finally comes out on DVD (like, next Tuesday??) let's hope they have anought respect for the film-makers to offer it in Letterbox...

Oh, wait, the kind of people who'd rent or BUY this kinda crap think "Letterbox" is something you hit with a baseball bat while hanging out your car window roaring down a country road roaring drunk!

NEVERMIND!
