The car that Bo finds in the water is clearly not a Dodge Charger. When he's by the door you can clearly see the door has a window frame. Dodge Chargers have frameless windows. See more »

Fun film but rather disjointed
4 March 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This movie is rather entertaining but has some glaring flaws.

To start with if we are to believe that this version of the Dukes tale is "the beginning" then the story should begin at an earlier time instead of the present day.

Additionally, the story isn't particularly compelling and doesn't reveal anything new about the origins of the Dukes of Hazzard but is instead another opportunity for the star of this franchise, the General Lee, to shine one more time which it indeed does. Humor and silliness is abundant and the eye candy is there but one is left with the feeling that this movie wasn't properly executed which perhaps explains why Warner's decided to skip releasing this at the box office.
