From Amazon.co.uk

The teaming of Johnny Knoxville and Seann William Scott 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 show that inspired it.

However, this brain-damaging comedy is more "rehash" than "remake," as good ol' Georgiaboys Luke Duke and his cousin Bo 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, played by Willie Nelson.

Meanwhile, cousin Daisy Duke--Jessica Simpson--is reliably available to model her short-shorts and awesome figure, 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, previously behind Super Troopers manages to mine some good-natured humour from the movie's oval-track detour and a few colorful supporting players. Otherwise, consider yourself warned: The Dukes of Hazzard is shameless Hollywood product at its most forgettable, trafficking in shameless white, rural Southern stereotypes. --Jeff Shannon

Synopsis

The Dukes of Hazzard follows the adventures of "good old boy" cousins Bo (Sean William Scott) and Luke (Johnny Knoxville) Duke, who with the help of their eye-catching cousin Daisy (Jessica Simpson) and moonshine-running Uncle Jesse (Willie Nelson), try and save the family farm from being destroyed.

The Dukes of Hazzard is quite an achievement - a $53m film that's worse than any given episode of a downmarket 25-year old TV show. The plot is serviceable enough but the mindless fun is rarely to be found and the casting is pretty atrocious: Johnny Knoxville is more passenger than protagonist, M.C. Gainey's Sheriff Roscoe is a bland thug, Michael Weston's Enos tiresome, a seemingly ideally-cast Willie Nelson just seems to be waiting for the check to clear and Burt Reynolds, stuck in some purgatory where he's doomed to relive his old movies as a bit player in remakes and imitations, is a curious choice for Boss Hogg to say the least but does have one good moment with a heckler and a hundred dollar bill. You know a film is in trouble when Seann William Scott and Jessica Simpson are the most charismatic screen presences... But worse than the script or the casting is Jay Chandrasekhar's hopeless direction: seemingly born with no conception of comic timing, unable to do much more than basic two-shots and seemingly clueless as to how to shoot a car chase let alone the couple of decent stunts in the film, he seems determined to sap the film of any signs of life before they materialise. There are a couple of neat post-modern moments revolving around the Confederate Flag and Daisy's stereotypical role in every episode, but no film that makes you pine for the days when Hal Needham was directing this sort of thing (and badly) can be a good thing.

Ok, lets be honest here. Regardless of whoever star in the new Dukes of Hazzard movie, they can never come close to emulating what was achieved in the TV series. When you come to watch the movie, it is best to try though it may be difficult to forget about what was done before. If you can, you will find an extremely enjoyable film, that blends comedy and action together Smokey & the Bandit style with a few nods to the TV show thrown in along the way. The plot which has be said is extremely thin on the ground sees cousins Bo,Luke,Daisy and their Uncle Jesse fighting to keep hold of their farm from the greedy town mayor, Boss Hogg who wants to use the land for coal mining. Johnny Knoxville and Seann William Scott make a reasonably good pairing as Bo & Luke - much of the comedy moments stemming from their verbal bickering. Jessica Simpson does what Jessica Simpson does best as Daisy Duke - look good in bikinis, short skirts etc. On the down side Willie Nelson has very little to do and Burt Reynolds is completely wasted as Boss Hogg. But forget all the human stars. The real star of the movie is of course the General Lee which has never looked better and the car chases & stunts are as good as anything produced in the TV series.
Highly recommended overall but for all you fans out there, if you really want to be picky & make comparisons with the TV show I would say that:
1. There is a bit of swearing - eg: Uncle Jesse swears in one scene - something that would NEVER EVER happen in the show.
2. Sheriff Rosco P Coltrane is the disappointing character and brings none of the humour to the movie that James Best did in the show.
3. There is a lack of the family values that was evident in the show - in the movie Uncle Jesse is as much a lawbreaker as his nephews.

This film is certainly aimed as a feel-good film. it has the typical structure. an aim (to win the Hazzard county race), a dilema that gets in the way and a solution that they solve/win both.

Although it has a cliche structure, you manage to not see it through the humour and the chaos the film has.

I found the funniest bit when they're pretending to be Japanese scientists when they had to find out about the coal.

Overall a good film, and i'd recommend you watch it! :)

By Martin Turner HALL OF FAMETOP 100 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 31 May 2009

When I heard they were remaking the Dukes of Hazzard, I groaned inwardly, and refused to watch it on the big screen. But, at home on the TV (the way The Dukes Of Hazzard are in any case meant to be seen), it really isn't as bad as I expected.

Basically, what you've got is Willy Nelson as a very creditable Uncle Jesse, a Dodge Charger that really does have the look and feel of the General Lee, and an Enos who really is quite reminiscent of the original. Sean William Scott does a good enough job as Bo, and Johnny Knoxville as Luke, to not bother you. Jessica Simpson isn't _quite_ cut out to be Daisy, but she sort of makes sense in context. M.C. Gainey, who was a guest star in the original series, is ok as Rosco P. Coltrane, but Burt Reynolds as Boss Hogg is really an entirely different character from the short, fat, and ludicrously self-important Sorrell Brooke that we all knew and loved to hate.

Actually, it really is the Boss Hogg character that distances this movie from its original. 'Our' Boss Hogg was greedy but not really evil. He would occasionally call a truce with the Dukes when someone really nasty turned up, and, over the seven series, it turned out he had a lifelong rivalry which was a kind of friendship with Uncle Jesse. Burt Reynolds's Boss Hogg, though, is unremittingly evil -- something which the director makes absolutely clear when he burns Rosco's nose with shrimp tongues which he has pulled out of boiling water.

The other thing which separates this from the original is the slowness of the plot, and the amount of explanation that the director seems to think we need.
