Product Description

Amazon.ca

The teaming of Johnny Knoxville (Jackass: The Movie) and Seann William Scott (Dude, Where's My Car?) as well as the presence of the '70s-flavored car chases that were a specialty of the TV series guarantees that The Dukes of Hazzard will be even more lowbrow than the CBS TV series (1979-85) that inspired it. However, this brain-damaging comedy is more "rehash" than "remake," as good ol' Georgia boys Luke Duke (Knoxville) and his cousin Bo (Scott) are frequently upstaged by the General Lee, the Confederate-flagged '69 Charger that they drive, jump, race, and fly in as they smuggle moonshine for their Uncle Jesse (Willie Nelson). Meanwhile, cousin Daisy Duke (Jessica Simpson) is reliably available to model her short-shorts (aka "Daisy Dukes") and awesome figure (and let's face it, Simpson's talents pretty much begin and end right there), while corrupt honcho Boss Hogg (Burt Reynolds, who should know better) recruits a local NASCAR star to advance his wily scheme of converting Hazzard County into a strip mine. Director Jay Chandrasekhar (Super Troopers) manages to mine some good-natured humor from the movie's oval-track detour and a few colorful supporting players (notably Kevin Hefferman as the Duke's pal Sheev). Otherwise, consider yourself warned: The Dukes of Hazzard is shameless Hollywood product at its most forgettable, trafficking in shameless white, rural Southern stereotypes. If you can make it to the end, there's a blooper reel to reward your endurance. --Jeff Shannon

The Dukes of Hazzard truly earns a place in the hall of shame of terrible, ill-advised remakes of previously popular TV shows. Maybe, if you've never seen the show, you might think the movie is OK; the rest of us can only sit and cringe while Hollywood basically makes a mockery out of everything the show was about. The script is bad in and of itself, but the casting is a total disaster. I don't mind Johnny Knoxville and Seann William Scott so much, but Jessica Simpson is no Daisy, Burt Reynolds is almost the antithesis of the real Boss Hogg, Willie Nelson turns Uncle Jessie into some coarse country comedian you can't begin to respect, and Roscoe - what the heck happened to the Roscoe character? James Best was one of the real stars of the television show; he made most of the comedy happen, and most kids included a Roscoe P. Coltrane impression in their comedic repertoire. I've never even heard of M.C. Gainey, but he could never even begin to fill Best's shoes, even if the script had actually given us a character remotely similar to the original. Maybe Burt Reynolds wanted to hog all of the bad guy spotlight; I can't think of any other reason why the Roscoe character would be treated with such contempt and neglect by the filmmakers. And why is Lynda Carter even in the movie?

Calling this modern Bo and Luke good old boys is stretching the point a bit; these guys actually should be in jail for all of their shenanigans. Heck, the costs of all the property damage they inflict on Hazzard (not to mention Atlanta - which brings up another point: I'm almost sure the TV show was set in North Carolina and not Georgia) should be enough to bankrupt the county. There's really nothing good about either one of them, especially in terms of their treatment of women.

This movie is a waste of time and is an insult to the original Dukes of Hazard characters. Jessica playing Daisy is an insult, and Bo and Luke appeared as a bunch of college students would act on spring break. A complete insult to the original TV series.

5.0 out of 5 stars The drive for five... March 21 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Nope, this ain't going to win the Golden Palm at Cannes, but if you are looking for a rollickin' piece of entertainment, this could jest fill the bill.

Knoxville and Scott just knock it out of the park all the way through, but the mighty supporting cast, including Jay and Kevin from Super Troopers (Jay even directs the movie) are just outstanding. In fact, David Koechner as mechanical genius Cooter along with giants such as Burt Reynolds (as Boss Hogg) and Willie Nelson really make this an ensemble cast, where everybody is a star. Great to see Lynda Wonder Woman Carter in there also.

Special mention to the superb M.C. Gainey as Sheriff Roscoe P. Coltrane and James Roday, who almost steals the show as BIlly Prickett, backed by the hilarious Michael Roof as Dil Driscoll.

As for Jessica Simpson as Daisey Duke... holy Toledo... Just watch it...trust me...
