Buy it... if you want a loyal musical representation from the film, with near-parody Southern rock and bluegrass styles that do the General Lee proud.

Avoid it... if you find anything involving The Dukes of Hazzard to be just slightly ridiculous.

The Dukes of Hazzard: (Nathan Barr) You really have to wonder how such terrible films like this can actually turn immensely huge profits. It's frightening to think what people in India think of America and its inhabitants when this film plays overseas ("these people currently rule the earth?"), and it's almost as frightful to think what American city-dwelling liberals with college educations think about it either ("these people still exist?"). Based on the the popular television show of the same name from 1979 through 1985, The Dukes of Hazzard is about two cousins who run a moonshine business and another one who waitresses in a bar, all of which happens in the backroads of Georgia. The whole point of The Dukes of Hazzard was to exhibit "General Lee," a 1969 Dodge Charger with the Confederate flag painted on the roof. It flies over ditches, rivers, and ravines, outruns angry semi-truck drivers, and eludes police in every mind-boggling fashion... never seeming to break all that moonshine that they're trafficking. Redefining the word "hick" for the modern era (the setting of the film has been updated to modern times, including the mandatory NASCAR race scene), the film puts Willie Nelson and Burt Reynolds in funny, smaller roles. But most of the attention in The Dukes of Hazzard involved the brainless Jessica Simpson, who does justice to the "land of short shorts" with her own physical specimen of a body on display. Ironically, when the film got trashed by nearly every reputable critic, one of the gripes about it was that Simpson's appearances in those infamous shorts are far too few. The lameness of the show didn't stop director Jay Chandrasekhar (whose family, just to make a connection to the comment about India above, is from Southern India) from translating that lameness directly into the film; in fact, he seems to have intentionally done so in every regard, including the musical score. This is his second collaboration with composer Nathan Barr, whose credits include Club Dread and Cabin Fever. And Barr, too, sounded like he had a whole lot of fun with this project.
