Very Enjoyable! There's no spoilers unless you haven't watched the movie!
My first opinion of the Dukes of Hazzard: Hazzard in Hollywood when I read the reviews and before I saw the thing actually for myself was the show would basically suck. This wasn't the case for me.
Of both Reunion movies, Hazzard in Hollywood is the one I enjoyed the most. It had a lot of things that I saw the Reunion! movie lacked. First of all, the Reunion movie did have a lot of car scenes, but they were all achieve footage. If they can't make the scenes match, why bother? Sure, they did have archive footage in the original series, but it at least matched! Second of all, the reunion movie was about the race, but then they tied in Enos and Daisy's wedding. We actually think they're gonna pull it off this time, but no such luck. It's Daisy this time that gets cold feet. I don't know about y'all, but I don't see Daisy as one to get jittery. Then we find out in the beginning of the movie that Daisy had a bad marriage and when the fellow shows up, I'm expecting a fight breaking out between Bo, Luke and L.D., but all Bo says is "You've done enough." Not what I expected, to say the least.
Hazzard in Hollywood had Bo lusting, which is a basic in the series; Luke was a tiny bit out of character, but he's getting older and doesn't like the big stunts he use to do when he was younger (which is understandable, because he was doing this in the 6th and 7th season); Daisy was more outgoing in Hazzard In Hollywood, which is kind of like Daisy's character; Rosco's funny, Cletus is silly, Enos has this new twist on him that I liked. I can see all the city girls calling him a "Stud Muffin" because it's something they're not use to. He's a different culture to the one they're use to. Boss and Uncle Jesse are Marjory missed and you can tell it. But to complain that Jesse wasn't as missed as Boss Hogg is absurd. You could tell they were thinking about him. He is mentioned throughout the show. One thing I dislike about both of the movies is the house. The first one it's a 2-story house and the second one it isn't even seen. I like the second one better of the two because if you can't get it right, don't do it at all.
All out of all, I like the second movie better. It has more of the elements that I missed. The show is a more of a place to go if you want to get 100% Dukes, but if you want to see the cast get together and it's not a documentary, watch Hazzard in Hollywood.
One more thing and I think I'm done. Luke's goatee could be formed out of his maturity. Uncle Jesse always had a beard and mustache, maybe Luke thought he should have one. He is the head of the household now. I'm not a fan of goatees, don't get me wrong, but maybe there's an unmentioned motive behind the goatee. There's a lot of unmentioned motives in the series.
