Now I can't honestly say I never watched the original series. It did have Catherine Bach in it. And she was wearing those Daisy Duke shorts most of the time. And I obviously watched it enough that the phrase "'Bout then the Duke boys decided to give Boss Hogg a run for his money" is in my head whenever a buddy and I are going to do something stupid.
Despite that early exposure, I know that I will not be exposed to the latest film version of the Dukes of Hazzard.
I will also make some bold predictions that none of the following will ever be said about the movie:
- Feel Good Hit of the Summer
- a taut, psychological thriller that will keep you guessing until the very end
- a performance so textured and nuanced that Oscar will come calling
- rich, luxurious cintematography
I could be wrong, but I'll bet I'm not.
