While appearing on a Dutch TV talk show to help publicize her appearance as Daisy Duke in this movie, Jessica Simpson acted as a magician's assistant when she was sawed in half by magician Hans Klok in an illusion called "Clearly Impossible". In 1981, original Daisy Catherine Bach also took a turn at being a magician's assistant when she was sawed into six by magician David Copperfield in his fourth "The Magic of" TV special. See more »
Luke Duke slides out of the car window to shoot his bow and arrow and doesn't have a bow with him. Then he has a bow and shoots at the cops. When he slides back into the car, he no longer has his bow. See more »
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.
