In this prequel re-telling of the famous 1979-1985 TV series of the same name, the teenage mischievous Duke boys, cousins Bo and Luke (Jonathan Bennett and Randy Wayne), are arrested for reckless driving and possession of illegal fireworks. They are sent to live with their Uncle Jesse (Willie Nelson) at his farm in rural Hazzard County in an unnamed southwestern state. Bo and Luke's orphaned dowdy cousin Daisy (April Scott) soon joins them hoping to find a place in her life. Jesse is also a moonshiner who struggles to make ends meet and soon employs a willing Bo and Luke to be his runners to deliver his 'special' White Lighting whiskey to all parts of the county after observing their driving skills using a fixed-up orange-painted 1969 Dodge Charger which they named 'The General Lee'. But it doesn't take long for Bo and Luke to find a worthy opponent in the form of the cigar-chomping J.D. 'Boss' Hogg (Christopher McDonald), the corrupt city commissioner of the nearby small town and ... Written by Larry B.

This is not as bad as the rating at all!
23 January 2009 | by See all my reviews

I have never seen the TV series, so I don't have any preformed idea about how this move should be. This movie's rating is too low for its good work, that is for sure. This is the reason why I wrote this comment.

Those two main characters are pretty good looking, so they are nice just to look at. And their acting skills are not bad at all, pretty natural, not faked. Their southern accents sound real which made this movie a little more fun to watch.

This movie can be timeless, because it didn't mention any special time or year. Of course, you shouldn't expect everything they did in the movie can really happen in real life. If you just watch it for the fun, then you will enjoy it as much as I did. And I also like the extra short video "Dukes in drag". It reminded me of the movie called "Sorority boys", those two Dukes looked much better than the sorority boys.
