Tom Wopat and John Schneider revive their 80's characters as, once again, the "Good Ol' Boys" rise up against corruption in the South, this time in the form of a businesswoman (Stevens), with the help of some friends from the old series.
You know, I grew up in the Dukes' era, and I was mildly surprised at how good of a job director Lewis Teague did with this film. I know that the original series has some corny plots by what we see nowadays, but, for those of us who grew up in that time, there wasn't one of us alive who enjoyed the original series without picturing themselves behind the wheel of the General Lee. (I had to mention the car - after all, it was the car(s) that made the jump, not those boys.) A little older, perhaps, but the actors walked in and picked up on their original characters like they've been doing them for the last twenty years.
