Storyline

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.

Trivia

In the scene at the town square where Boss Hogg is about to give an election speech, the narrator says that Boss Hogg's favorite saying is "Vote early and vote often." This saying actually exists and is attributed to "Big" Bill Thompson, the notoriously corrupt mayor of Chicago during the 1920's who was bought off by Al Capone. Whenever possible, Capone would rig the Chicago elections in order to ensure Thompson's victory. See more »

Goofs

When they take the General Lee for it's first drive you can see the back window being fine, then during the drive there's a shot of it being broken out, but when they arrive back it's whole again. See more »

Quotes

Daisy Duke: [after being whistled at by numerous people in jail] I don't see what all the fuss is.
Luke Duke: It's probably because you're missing 99% of your pants.
Bo Duke: And the other 1% is covering your magic parts.

good movie
7 March 2007 | by tweeter_716See all my reviews

This one is better then the one that played at the movie if you liked the TV show you will like this movie.Its got every thing the show had and a little more. the movie was funny and Willie nelson does a good job once again. Cant wait for it to come to DVD so i can add to my collection of dukes.And daisy's hot as ever course jessica simpson is pretty out but this chick fit the part. The boys playing bo and Luke did a good job. Even thou in the TV show bo was not that dumb but it made the show funny so i suggest to sit back if you haven't seen it yet and grab some beers and order a pizza cause this movie is worth the watch . I hope there will be a part 3 cause the dukes live on.
