Cousins Bo, Luke and Daisy are sent to Hazzard County, Georgia for the first time to live with their Uncle Jesse. Jesse is a farmer and a moonshiner and is constantly battling his old rival Boss Hogg who is the corrupt city commissioner of the small town. This film is a prequel set before the time period established in the 1979 Hit TV Series. Written by
In this film, the General Lee's first jump was Hogg's Ravine, which was really big and nobody had jumped it before. This jump is based off the creek that made the first jump in the show, and was seen many times. See more »

As seen on UniMas, this film was exploitive, sophomoric, & overall offensive.
I watched this, meaning I yielded to the many promos on the Spanish-language network UniMás. But I think the commercials had shown all of the good parts, because what I was watching was an unpleasant experience. Now, as a "Mystery Science Theater 3000" fan, I rate "Dukes of Hazzard: The Beginning" a star higher than most films that were on that show (or on "RiffTrax") because there was some professionalism in the making of the film (despite the fact it's a straight-to-DVD movie). As a kid, I grew up w/ the original TV series on my television although chances are my parents were watching, so I wasn't really a fan. & I had no interest in watching the cinematic remake starring Johnny Knoxville, Sean William Scott, & Jessica Simpson. But this prequel just was too juvenile for my taste. None of the lead actors were recognizable, not even April Scott as Daisy Duke. How ruined was her film career after that? Not even appearances in commercials? I did notice the guy from "Rocketman," the villain from "Happy Gilmore," & Willie Nelson. I assume getting high (or drunk) was no offense during filming; I had to wonder who WASN'T under the influence among the cast & crew. I would guess the actresses; beer or pot might contain a few calories or gluten that would damage their nubile figures & get cut from the movie, even the elderly-by-this-film's-standards Sherilyn Finn. Also, this movie does fit the standards of watching it on TV in Spanish; whatever resembled a plot was a mere excuse for car chases. So in conclusion, "Dukes of Hazzard: The Beginning" is trashy for an un-devoted fan like me. For the true Duke fans, this is a real abomination & must be avoided entirely.
