Just A Good 'Ol Boy

Growing up as a seven-year-old, playing outside until dark with the neighborhood kids then sitting back to watch an episode of the Dukes of Hazzard on a Friday night, the movie version should be critic proof as Southern crack.

Here's some of the reviews:
The San Francisco Chronicle's respected movie critic, Mick LaSalle, called it "The worst movie so far in the 21st century" and rated it close to the worst of all-time. I actually, recommend reading this review, because, ironically, it reminds me of those flowery and viciously hyperbolic reviews you'll only see in bad movies or sitcoms.

Mike Clark of the USA Today called it "a is what it is" kind of movie, which made me wonder is he a critic of films or of what people will actually like.

"White-faced mintrel show" is what A.O. Scott of the New York Times called the "Dukes of Hazzard".

What all of them clearly mentioned is that the film is unfunny and Jessica Simpson shows more ass and less screen presence than any other actress in a PG-13 flick.

In that case, I'll be there!

The best song yet. I laughed, I cried, I stroked my salami at the thought of Jessica Simpson doing the slobber boogie on my bonophone.
