Movies opening this week

The Dukes of Hazzard (Johnny Knoxville, Seann William Scott, Jessica Simpson, dir. Jay Chandrasekhar)
My review in Las Vegas Weekly
You know, I just don't have the energy to complain about endless remakes of TV shows or how Hollywood has no ideas or how an entire movie appears to be constructed around a car and Jessica Simpson's ass. This movie isn't worth the effort. I will say this, though: I, unlike many critics, have a fondness for the Broken Lizard guys, and I am happy that they are getting the chance to make another movie after Club Dread bombed, and that it's a buddy comedy set in ancient Greece. If they had to whore themselves out making this movie to get there, well then I'm okay with that. Wide release
