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

This movie is supposed to take place before the 2005 film. In the beginning of the 2005 film, General Lee had no confederate flag, and the 01 was sloppily painted on there. It was made to look like the original later on in the film. In this film, it says it always looked like it originally did. See more »

I don't see what all the fuss is.
It's probably because you're missing 99% of your pants.
And the other 1% is covering your magic parts.

I was a die hard fan of the original TV series 3 decades ago, I never missed a show, and even watched the Coy and Vance episodes. I enjoyed the 2005 movie as Knoxville and Scott did a great job as Bo and Luke (the rest of the cast left much to be desired).
This new movie, even with it's minor profanity (which would have worked better omitted, in my opinion), was still a funny and enjoyable movie. The story is a bit unique as it tells the story of how the towns folk started off before the '79 series made its debut, surrounded by the typical Dukes of Hazzard cliché'd plot. The movie keeps you entertained with a good amount of action, car chases down the dusty roads of Hazzard County, crooked cops and shine runners. A typical 70's country environment all set in a modern day environment which seemed out of place for some parts of the movie.
Everyone did a fine job acting their respective roles, even though I still don't enjoy Willie as Uncle Jesse, he did a much better job in this move than he did in the '05 movie.
With it's few flaws, it's still a pretty enjoyable movie for any action/comedy fans, or fans of the original series. It's like coming back home again.
