Ah, To Be A Variety Film Critic...

Two of the more choice sentences from the review of Dukes of Hazzard by Variety's chief tv critic Brian Lowry [subscription required] :

Urban box office appears unpredictable, but hicks don't figure to nix this sticks pic.

In that respect, credit Dukes of Hazzard with managing to make a juvenile romp with free-spirited rednecks go down as smoothly as a slug o' moonshine on a hot August night.

Can you believe people get paid to write this way?
