In 2005, Warner Bros settled a lawsuit filed by representatives of film producer Bob Clark. Lawyers for the producer claimed that when the studio bought the rights to Clark's film Moonrunners (1975) in order to make The Dukes of Hazzard (1979) TV series, they bought the TV rights only, not the feature film rights. The lawsuit attempted to hold up release of this film. The settlement amount was reportedly $17.5 million. See more »

Rosco P. Coltrane:
You're fixin' to fix it? Boy, you couldn't fix an election if your brother was the governor.

There are bloopers, interlaced with Willie Nelson performing on stage, during the closing credits See more »
Unrated version includes more swearing from the Dukes, dialogue extensions (like Cooter asking for a BJ from Daisy for the fixing of the General) and some scenes where the sorority girls are topless. See more »
The Dukes of Hazzard Movie took something that was great and made it worth no more then a big pile of dog crap!!!!!!!!!!!
I am a huge fan of the original Dukes of Hazzard TV show, so I was really happy when I found out that it was going to made into a movie. Well all of my excitement disappeared quickly during the first five minutes of the movie. In that short time I realized that the director and writer of this movie really screwed up the whole point of the original TV show. For anybody who has seen at least one episode of the Dukes of Hazzard, they know that Uncle Jessie is a very respected man who was a very strong father figure to Bo, Luke, and Daisy. He would give the world if it would save his family from getting in trouble. Heck he gave up running Moonshine so Bo and Luke would not spend the rest of their lives in prison. Well in the movie all Uncle Jessie is a old man who rather smoke weed, run moonshine, or cuss all day then do anything else. Willie Nelson's version of Uncle Jessie was definitely not the strong Christian father figure who kept the Duke family together by teaching them great morals and being that positive role model in their lives--like Denver Pyle was. I can safely say that the late Mr. Pyle would be greatly upset if he was still with us today, to see how bad Hollywood has turned the DOH into a sleazily trashy film. I officially am boycotting this horrible mockery of what was and is still today a great family orientated piece of American History, the Dukes of Hazzard TV show. THANKS FOR ROYALLY SCREWING UP THE DUKES OF HAZZARD. It is very clear to see that you have not seen the show, and never understood it and what made it so great in so many people's eyes over the years. You should be ashamed of yourselves for making such a horrible movie with so much trash and crap in it that it is not even funny. You had a great opportunity to make a great clean family film that still would make a lot of money in the theaters. This movie did not need all of the cussing, sexual references, and drug related stuff to sell it. The original Dukes of Hazzard concept would of been more then enough to sell this movie. Evidently the director and writers of this film do not understand how much of a following the original show still has today twenty something years after it's debut. If they did they would understand that they are only hurting themselves by destroying what made the original show so great. I can guarantee that all of the die hard Dukes of Hazzard fans will not buy this movie when it comes out on DVD/VHS because you really screwed it up so bad.
