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.

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.

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! :)

"Hey. You Anus?"
"No, that's Enos, Mr. Prickett."

This is a light American-style comedy like "Hot Shots", "Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back" and such. Unlike those, though, I actually watched this one to the end, and watched it again.

Hazzard is a sleepy smalltown in the US state of Georgia - you know, the kind of place where police officers are actually polite to the people.
One of the movie's heroes is a gorgeous Dodge Charger nicknamed "General Lee". It's driven recklessly along the country roads, fields and hills by testosterone-bursting Luke Duke, accompanied by his no less adventurous cousin Bo. Luke has won the local traditional car race four times in a row. Only one other man has ever done that - Billy Prickett. He's become a big star by now, but this year he's returned to his hometown to race against Luke.
Things are made much more complicated by the local sheriff who passionately hates the Duke family. The latter aren't exactly model citizens, and this time it really looks like the local law enforcement has got them by the balls. But Bo and Luke just won't be discouraged. They set to fight against the overwhelming odds and are determined to do whatever is necessary to save the family from utter disaster.

Many things they do are impossible, and some things are quite cliche, and those dozen bare breasts are really implausible under those circumstances. But it's still one hell of a good movie. Very funny, very captivating, very satisfying.
Maybe one reason to that are the fabulous characters. They are too many to describe them all here, but one to stick out is undoubtedly Daisy, played by a Jessica Simpson. (She's mainly a singer, as I found out.) Not only is she gorgeous-looking (much more so than on Jessica Simpson's photos I've looked up).
