Just the BAD ol' boys?

I can't say that I'm shocked, but the forthcoming "Dukes of Hazzard" movie has drawn some serious flack from at least one star from the classic TV show. Ben Jones, who played Cooter the mechanic on the show (and who later became a Georgia congressman), is now urging fans of the show to avoid the big screen version. After reading the script, Jones published his opinion on the upcoming film. A sampling of his thoughts on the level of sleazy and crude humor in the film:

"It's one thing to do whatever movie they want to do, but to take a classic family show and do that is like taking 'I Love Lucy' and making her a crackhead or something."
