Pretty good Dukes Of Hazzard Prequel
12 June 2001 | by (Arkansas, USA) – See all my reviews

I really did like this movie. I actually saw it way before it was ever considered for making into a TV show. I immediately saw the similarities a few years later, when it became The Dukes Of Hazzard. The real kicker for me was when I saw it not long ago again on Cable and found it was filmed right around where I now live. (within a ten mile radius of my home!!!!!)
