Cooter Says No

Ben Jones, a former Georgia congressman who played the wisecracking mechanic Cooter on the popular series "Dukes of Hazzard" from 1979 to 1985, is urging fans to skip the forthcoming movie version, calling it "a sleazy insult." He said profanity and sexual content in the film make a mockery of the family-friendly show. "Basically, they trashed our show," said Jones in an open letter to fans on his Web site. He read a script of the Warner Brothers movie, which is scheduled to be released next month. "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."

Well, I wasn't going to see it anyway...
