Is It Any Good?

Kids say (2 ):

This ABC Family resurrection of the old t-and-a-and-car-crash staple The Dukes of Hazzard is just as raunchy, sexist, and titillating as you might expect. It serves up lots of eye-candy along with erroneous messages about body image and teen relationships.

Viewers may be alarmed at how emaciated Daisy looks. She's just one of several women who are judged for their appearance and sexual availability. An older woman at a carnival who expresses interest in Luke is called a "psychic whore." In short, this is the kind of movie that casts a former Real World cast member (Treshelle Cannatella) as Luke's love interest.
