Trivia

Seann William Scott openly regretted making the film. While most critics say it was too crude compared to the original, Scott actually felt that an R-rating would have "allowed me, Johnny and Jay to make a more enjoyable film." See more »

Goofs

When the cousins are confronted in Atlanta by a group of men for having the rebel flag on their car, Luke's window is up about four inches. As the gang approaches the car, he begins to roll the window up from a completely down position, and he gets it to that approximate four inches before the aggressor puts his hands on it. When told to get out of the car, he slides out and sits up on the door sill without ever having rolled the window back down. See more »

C'mon folks it's The Dukes of Hazzard NOT Citizen Kane
31 August 2005 | by See all my reviews

I'm a huge fan of the Dukes of Hazzard TV show. And I really enjoyed this flick. I enjoyed myself here a lot more than I did with other summer blockbusters.

It's funny hearing people rail against this movie with excuses like "lame plot" and "it's much cruder than the show." Does ANYONE remember the crudeness of the humor in the pilot episode? Daisy makes incest jokes and Bo says that Luke had probably fathered half the kids in the orphanage. The only reason it was cleaned up is because it changed to and earlier time slot.

And as far as the plot goes. It was the perfect Dukes plot. In fact as a remake it probably stays truer to the source material than any TV show that has migrated to the big screen.

While Sean William Scott and Johnny Knoxville aren't EXACTLY like their small screen versions, they do a great job and work very well together. I wasn't too keen on Burt's Boss Hogg though. And I would have like a little bit more incompetence from Sheriff Roscoe. In the movie Roscoe is a little... scary.

And who didn't have a smile on their face as the General Lee is racing through the streets of Atlanta and the back roads of Hazzard?

Folks, allow yourself to enjoy a movie that is just an excuse for nostalgia, bikinis and car chases, you won't be sorry. It's just a great dumb movie!
