Worst Movie of the Year

By Debbie Schlussel
Dukes of Hazzard. Horrid. Like being forced to watch “Hee Haw” for four hours straight. Save your money. If you are seeing it for Jessica Simpson, watch her video. She spends less time in the movie than in that–for good reason. Worst actress: Jessica Simpson.
I guarantee this movie wins the 2005 Razzie and so does she. More proof that some things from the 70s should never make a comeback.

I real feel sorry for Burt Reynolds. He has stated in the past his regrets over turning down the James Bond role and, later, turning down the “Terms of Endearment” role that Jack Nicholson later took and won an Oscar with. I wonder what this film will do to his career.
I have not seen this film, partly because the previews absolutely sicken me. I loved Dukes of Hazzard when I was a kid. Believe it or not, not because of Catherine Bach but because of the sheer humor: how Bo and Luke wear the same outfits each episode, how the car never seems to suffer damage despite all the endless jumps and scrapes, the incredible ineptness of Roscoe P. Coltrane and Boss Hogg.
As a Christian, I find myself deeply disappointed in Jessica Simpson. I don’t understand why she chooses to degrade herself and women in general by starring in films like this and posing the way she did for Rolling Stone.
If this movie’s primary selling point is Daisy Duke’s sexuality, it may very well flop. Sex is used often to sell films, but films that rely too much on sex and nothing on acting, script writing, storylines, etc., traditionally do poorly at the box office.

At least “Hee Haw” had a few good Chet Atkins tunes.

Atleast “Hee Haw” had a few good Chet Atkins tunes.

Well, “has” might not be the best word for Mr. Reynolds.
I’d rather spend my time watching REAL films with excellent story lines, excellent plots, camera work, etc. My favorite is the Al Pacino and Robert De Niro crime drama “Heat”. Ridley Scott’s “Alien” was good also.
