This review is from: The Dukes Of Hazzard: The Beginning [DVD] (DVD)
A lot of people hated the first movie in 2005 starring Johnny Knoxville but at least in that film they got it half right; the car stunts were spot on.
Sadly this straight to DVD 'prequel' is everything people feared the first movie might be. They were wrong then, but they're right now. This is the worst hollow cash-in, moron-audience targeting pile of steaming horse puckey you've ever seen. Bo and Luke seem to have a combined IQ of 25 and yelling yee-ha at naked women (yes, naked; funny I don't remember seeing that on the TV show, or the movie for that matter) and played by nobody actors who should be thoroughly ashamed for the rest of their lives. Daisy Duke as a nerd? Are you kidding me?
The plot is made up of Bo and Luke driving like frat party drunkards and inadvertantly crashing in on women in the shower/sunbathing topless etc. If they didn't eventually get the general lee you'd wander how ANY of this crap had ANYTHING to do with The Dukes of Hazzard. The only jump they do is a bad CGI jump over a tiny gorge. This in itself is inexcusable.
I don't mind remakes. I like to think I have an open mind. I even liked the first film (when they were in the car at least), but this is pure drivel from the deepest depths of hell. If you know anyone who remotely likes this 'film' get away from them as soon as possible.
