In Georgia's dusty Hazzard County, the close-knit Duke cousins, Bo and Luke, deliver Uncle Jesse's fine moonshine. Zooming down the rough backwoods on their powerful muscle-car--the tangerine 1969 Dodge Charger, General Lee--the boys easily outrun the corrupt county commissioner Boss Hogg's forces, and his loyal henchman, Sheriff Roscoe P. Coltrane. However, when the clan of moonshiners are left with nothing, only Bo, Luke, and Daisy Duke can save their farm, as the day of the annual road rally approaches. Can the Dukes of Hazzard beat Hogg's champion, Billy Prickett, save the day, and their beloved home? Written by Nick Riganas

Can't you people just rate this movie with honesty..?
8 August 2005 | by saketrickSee all my reviews

This is not an awful movie. It's not a great movie, or even a 'very good' movie, but it is not an AWFUL movie.

This movie was directed by the same man responsible for "Super Troopers" and "Club Dread" -- they're fun movies, and full of ridiculous humor, but not great .. Club Dread especially was a real let down .. This movie is better -- A lot better, I think .. But how come Club Dread has a 5.3/10 and this movie has a .. 4.3/10 ..? Club Dread wasn't a box office hit, and there's no reason to show "hate" toward the movie .. unlike The Dukes of Hazzard. Apparently 526 (at the moment) have a good reason to "hate" this movie, as they chose to rate it "awful" instead of being honest and helpful to the NICE people who visit this site .. and just give it an honest rating .. so that some people can actually get a good idea of how good/bad this movie really is.

A lot of people reviewing/rating this movie on IMDb seem to think it's their responsibility to STOP people from seeing it .. to them, I say this: "Well, we're sorry you used to watch the show and were offended by this fun piece of crap, but you know, it's not really as bad as you say it is! I wouldn't even call this a waste of money. It's too much fun to just outright HATE it .. !"

High Points: Sean William Scott, Willie Nelson, Jessica Simpson somehow not annoying the hell out of me, all the chase sequences, Burt Reynolds being a bad**s villain, director cameo, the jail scene -- memorable line there: "Don't you know you're not supposed to wear white after labor day!" *Boss Hogg stops in his tracks for a moment* .. etc. etc. etc.

Low Points: Slow plot development -- not to mention a silly plot anyway, some stupid physical comedy, occasional bad timing, rednecks everywhere, etc. etc. etc.

In conclusion: See this movie to spite the old whiny b***ards.
