Editorial Reviews

When mischievous teenaged cousins Bo Duke (Jonathan Bennett, Mean Girls) and Luke Duke (Randy Wayne, ABC's Sons and Daughters) are arrested, both boys are paroled to the care of their Uncle Jesse (Willie Nelson) in Hazzard, sentenced to a summer of hard work. It's not long before the Duke boys learn of Boss Hogg's (Chris McDonald) plans to foreclose on Uncle Jesse's farm. Together, with help from their frumpy cousin Daisy (April Scott), Bo and Luke vow to save the family's property and its storied history of producing the best moonshine in all of Hazzard. Driving through Hazzard in the "General Lee" blasting its famed Dixie horn, the Duke boys join forces to make Boss Hogg's life miserable, concocting one crazy scheme after another.

3.0 out of 5 stars Trying to be objective March 16, 2007
Format:DVD
I watched the DVD of this last night, and I've been mulling over my feelings about it today, on and off. I feel a bit split down the middle about it. Ok, my initial reactions when viewing this was that it was a travesty, in Hazzard terms. The main thing that's wrong with it is the change in tone of the attitudes and depiction of *some* of the characters. Bo and Luke were always clean cut well meaning boys. They may not have been mensa candidates, but they had their smarts. The problem with this film and the previous film is that they are depicted almost like morons. I thought the casting of the two leads was ok though, better than the previous movie. The next problem is Uncle Jesse. Willie Nelson looks the part and is an OK substitute for Denver Pyle, but that's it. The fact that he isn't an actor really shows and he's patently unable to embelish the character with any of the warmth that Denver brought. Uncle Jesse never told any crude jokes in the original series either. It really lowers the tone, if you have to have crude jokes and swearing at least limit it to just Bo and Luke, leave Uncle Jesse out of it. Uncle Jesse was the heart and soul of the Dukes Of Hazzard, he was the Obi-Wan of the series.Right on to the other cast members, I thought they were OK, you're never going to find replacements for Sorrell Booke and James Best, but I thought Christopher Macdonald did quite a good job of Boss, better than Burt Reynolds anyhow. The actor that played Rosco was an interesting choice, OK I suppose, but no James Best. The girl that played Daisy, she was a bit on the thin side, but I still would.

Apart from the crudeness and some of the jokes I thought the story line was OK. It still felt like the Dukes of Hazzard in this sense.

2.0 out of 5 stars HOLLYWOOD RUNS OUT OF IDEAS ONCE AGAIN March 13, 2007
Format:DVD
Please, please, please, leave the Dukes alone. After it took over a year and a half to finally accept the first Dukes remake for what it was worth, along comes this slop. Thanks to todays society and brainless filmmakers they have turned a darn good action packed family T.V. series into an adult oriented movie. Don't get me wrong, I love seeing all of the nudity, sex, profanity, and violence on the big screen but not if they ruin a classic series to do it. I grew up with the original Dukes of Hazzard and it gave me great joy to buy all seven seasons on DVD so that I could show my 6yr. old and 3yr. old what quality television really was. I never thought that I would be telling my kids to close their eyes during scenes from a Dukes of Hazzard movie. Rent this movie first. It does have a few funny scenes, but not $20 worth. The poor General Lee is only allowed to do one jump and it is so poorly done that it looks like a hotwheel car flying through the air. I hear that Hollywood is also remaking The A Team, Knight Rider, and Dallas---GOD HELP US ALL!!!!!!!

1.0 out of 5 stars Worst prequel ever August 7, 2007
Format:DVD
Avoid this piece of garbage at all costs. It is horribly acted and none of the characters are even like they were on the tv show much less that stupid movie with Jessica Simpson.

1.0 out of 5 stars At least they got the car right March 5, 2007
Format:DVD
This movie only gets 1 star, for getting the make/model/color of the General Lee right. Everything else was horrible. I got to see the whole movie on the ABC Family channel, where it definitely did NOT belong. This movie had lots of adult themes and situations and was not appropriate for children under 13. I feel bad for the grown-ups who loved and cherished the Dukes series when they were little and were excited to show their children this movie (which aired on prime time Sunday night) only to have to change the channel 15 minutes into the movie because of the language or the content.

For those who haven't seen "The Dukes... Beginning", don't waste your time. It's just a slightly watered down version of the 2005 movie. They've dumbed down the cousins even more, and slutted up Daisy real nice. If you liked all the T & A from the 2005 movie, this'll be right up your alley. I'm sure for this "Unrated" version, it'll probably be much worse. For those of us who remember what southern gentlemen the Dukes were and how much of a lady Daisy was, this is an insult to our childhood memories.

Format:DVD
Surely, there must be a way for all of us fans of the real Dukes of Hazzard to get together and stop Hollywood from making these stupid movies that spit upon the traditions of the television series. Maybe you're wondering why I would even bother to watch this straight-to-DVD "prequel." Well, I'll tell you - I just had to see if it could possibly be even worse than the first movie (and, uh, April Scott was looking mighty fine on the DVD cover). Much to my surprise, I think this film might actually be a smidgen better than the first one. That's not to say that this one doesn't stink like all the manure on Uncle Jessie's farm, though, because it does. It did make me laugh a time or two, though, so I think I'm being rather generous in giving the film two stars.

Apart from Willie Nelson, this film sports an all-new cast, with Jonathan Bennett and Randy Wayne taking on the roles of Bo and Luke, respectively. Both cousins, who haven't seen each other in several years, are sent to work on Uncle Jessie's farm in order to keep them out of trouble (Luke's a pyromaniac and Bo's an all-around menace to society). Daisy (April Scott) is also there, but she surely isn't the Daisy I was expecting. This Daisy is a good girl who dresses in frumpy clothes, does basically nothing with her hair, and can't get any man to notice her (except for hall monitor Enos). The movie's halfway over before she transforms herself and breaks out the Daisy Dukes I know I was looking for. Even then, she's no Catherine Bach, but she's certainly prettier - and a much better actress - than Jessica Simpson. Christopher McDonald plays this younger version of Boss Hogg.

This movie is about the Dukes before they ever got on Boss Hogg's bad side. However, you guessed it, it also shows how they get on Boss Hogg's bad side. Read more

3.0 out of 5 stars Ok, but didn't love it.
I loved the original series, and the two subsequent movies, IMO, just make a mockery of the series. But it was still entertaining anyways.
