Trivia

Seann William Scott openly regretted making the film. While most critics say it was too crude compared to the original, Scott actually felt that an R-rating would have "allowed me, Johnny and Jay to make a more enjoyable film." See more »

Goofs

When the cousins are confronted in Atlanta by a group of men for having the rebel flag on their car, Luke's window is up about four inches. As the gang approaches the car, he begins to roll the window up from a completely down position, and he gets it to that approximate four inches before the aggressor puts his hands on it. When told to get out of the car, he slides out and sits up on the door sill without ever having rolled the window back down. See more »

Not Brilliant, But A Whole Lot Of Fun
8 August 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Okay, so a lot of people are going to tear this film apart. And they are right to do so; after all, it certainly isn't a very intelligent film. In fact, it is a relatively idiotic film. But it's also a fun film.

When Jay Chandrasekhar stepped up to make a film about this old TV show, obviously he looked at the series and said, "Well, it's not very intelligent, is it? But I can see the appeal. After all, it is a whole lot of fun."

And that's how he made the film. He took a fun show from the early 80's and made it into a fun show for the new millennium. Don't go see this movie if you're (God forbid) expecting to see sultry Jessica Simpson displaying an IQ bigger than her cup size. Or if you're hoping that Johnny Knoxville will be playing an environmentally-minded action hero. After all, the guy's big break was a show called Jackass...that should tell you something.

Folks, we're going back to Hazzard County. Moonshine, dirt track auto-racing, and lots and lots of inbreeding. Is any of this sinking in yet?

This is just a show about a family of bootleggers who have a really fast car and fight some of the dumbest criminal minds East of the Mason Dixon line. If you want something brilliant, this isn't it. But if you want to sit back, laugh, and have a good time, head on down to Hazzard County, where the girls wear short shorts, the moonshine flows like honey, and you can do your hot cousin if you want to.

Also, expect some cameos from the boys of Broken Lizard, and a throwback to Chandrasekhar's other big hit "Super Troopers". After all, the comedy is in the same style.
