"The Music Was Then, The Time Is Now!"|The Music Was Then, The Time Is Now!
The Dukes, (Chazz Palminteri and Robert Davi) a Doo Wop group, were on top of the world at 17, now are struggling for survival in 2008. Their manager (Peter Bogdanovich) is desperately trying to get them work but is met with failure at every turn. Finally pushed to the extreme, they pull a heist only a fool would attempt, which leaves them even more desperate. When all seems lost, they find themselves. Underneath the laughter, The Dukes is a film that explores the intricacies of re-defining yourself; not only dealing with lost fame but applies to anyone whoever found themselves at the bottom of the mountain looking up where they once were; and how, in changing times, to hold onto your true self .

"this unpretentious indie dramedy has much to recommend.  Joe Leydon, Variety
"From the Emeralds doing "Acapella" to Davi himself taking the lead on "So Much in Love," The Dukes is damn near impossible to resist.  Peter Travers, Rolling Stone

Editor's Note
In this heist comedy, a pair of doo-wop singers called the Dukes (Chazz Palminteri and Robert Davi) have seen better days. They can no longer support themselves on just their music, so they take a chance, hoping to raise their income by stealing a huge amount of gold from a dental lab. Since they lack experience, there's plenty of laughter and learning for the Dukes as they attempt the theft. In addition to his starring role, Davi wrote, directed, and produced this film, which also features Peter Bogdanovich, Miriam Margolyes, and Melora Hardin.

3 stars out of 4 -- "[A] potent directing debut for actor Robert Davi....Davi offers a moving portrait of a man caught in the process of trying to reinvent himself....THE DUKES is damn near impossible to resist." 11/27/2008 p.135

ReelViews 7 of 10
In recent years, I have complained about the inability of movies to close strongly. Numerous films with promising beginnings and middles have fallen apart at the end. Thankfully, that's not the case with The Dukes, where a satisfying final half-hour redeems the mediocre 60 minutes that precede it. After starting with a lackluster introduction and a by-the-numbers heist sequence, the film concludes with an upbeat and appealing final act that recalls Big Night. And, in something of a surprise for a movie germinating from the pen and camera of perennial bad guy Robert Davi and starring Davi and Chazz Palmineteri, The Dukes has a big heart and no penchant for violence. The rating is a soft PG-13, making this entirely suitable for family viewing. Not since David Lynch went G has there been such an unlikely cinematic occurrence...The Dukes is a labor of love for Davi and, in order to get it made, he had to go the independent route. This sort of simple story, with no pyrotechnics or big-name stars, is not the kind of thing Hollywood funds anymore. The return on investment, if there is one, is too low. Davi's inexperience as a director shows. Some of the transitions are sloppy (especially one surrounding a dream sequence) and he displays an inordinate fondness for lazy Susan shots (where the camera spins in circles around a group of characters). Overall, however, it is competently assembled and it gives us an opportunity to see this rogues gallery of tough guys playing ordinary, blue collar individuals. Due to its limited distribution pattern and the fact that it is being released into theaters during the heart of the competitive holiday market, The Dukes may be hard to find on the big screen, but it's worth keeping an eye out for once it reaches DVD. - James Berardinelli
