The Dukes of Hazzard: Reunion! (1997) revels in all the basic pleasures of this classic good ol' boy TV series: fast cars, bar fights, police cars colliding in midair, and pretty girls who bend over a lot in cutoff shorts. Almost the whole cast reunites--Bo Duke (John Schneider) has become a racecar pilot; Luke Duke (Tom Wopat) has become a smoke jumper; and Daisy Duke (Catherine Bach) has become a motorcycle-riding PhD in ecology. Along for the ride are Cooter (Ben Jones), who's become a congressman, Enos (Sonny Shroyer), who's become an L.A. police detective, and Uncle Jesse (Denver Pyle), who's just the same ornery old coot he ever was. A wily con woman named Mama Jo Max (Stella Stevens, star of the original Nutty Professor and the original Poseidon Adventure) has teamed up with Sheriff Rosco (James Best) to turn the beloved local swamp into a theme park, and the Duke boys agree to drive the General Lee (the show's trademark red Dodge Charger, which was more popular than the human stars) in a race to protect the endangered land. Naturally, there are double-crosses on top of double-crosses and all the down-home high jinks you could ask for. Written by the creator of the original show, Reunion! doesn't have a lot of surprises, but who watches The Dukes of Hazzard for surprises? This is comfort television, pure and simple, and fans of the show will take plenty of comfort. However, the less said about Hazzard in Hollywood (2000), the better. This hodgepodge of contrived plotting, clumsy dialogue, and inane supporting characters hoped to revive the franchise with a new recurring villain to replace the late, lamented Boss Hogg (Sorrell Booke), but the results are dismal--which only highlights how successfully Reunion! captures the flavor of the original show. --Bret Fetzer

Overall, This DVD set is a must for the overall Duke of Hazzard fan and a reminder of when TV was wildly good to the last drop :)
Since the actor that played Boss Hogg had passed away The Dukes of Hazzard Reunion movie has Rosco as the new Boss of Hazzard. The family members have grown up with Daisy off to collage, Luke a fire fighter and Bo a nascar driver returning to town to try to save Duke farm and the local swamp from a land scheme of Rosco and and big city con artist. It has all the elements one expect from the television show plus Enos asking Daisy to marry him.
The second movie has the town trying to save up enough money to build a new hospital when a visiting con man suggest taking the recordings of all the people who played in Hazzard over the years and re master the music to sell on a Hollywood label. To prevent the hospital from being build another con man with a grudge to settle has hired muscle to steal the tapes. What more the Russian mob and chop shop gangs are all in it for themselves. It's laughs a plenty as those still living like it the 1970s enters L.A's 21st century.
THE DUKES OF HAZZARD: REUNION aired in 1997 and it catches us up with what the Dukes have been up to (and there are some surprises; I didn't see Cooter's career change coming). With Boss Hogg having passed away, a new conniving no-good-nik steps into Hazzard County. Bo, Luke, and Daisy (and Cooter and Enos) return to Hazzard only to find Uncle Jesse in deep trouble and despised by just about everyone, at that. Josephine "Mama" Max has come to town, and she aims to build a theme park, except that the Dukes' swamp land stands in its way. Uncle Jesse ain't selling, and this is costing the good folks of Hazzard an assortment of jobs promised to them by Mama Max. Thus, the ill will towards Uncle Jesse, y'all.
A contest is proposed, to take place at the Homecoming Festival: an overland moonshine race between the General Lee and the only car that ever whipped the General. If the General wins, Uncle Jesse wins a thousand dollar prize. If the General loses, Uncle Jesse grants Mama Max access thru his property. Now if only the Dukes can find out whatever happened to the General. And then deal with Mama Max's underhandedness. And her nasty goons.
LAPD officer Enos Strate comes to town, and I'm glad he's getting respect. Enos still has his eyes on Daisy, and this time Daisy is eyeing him back. This bodes for possibly the biggest wedding ever in Hazzard. This is the kind of movie, by the way, in which Daisy Duke can ask the villainess, Mama Max, to help plan for her wedding... and Mama Max accepts. This is also the kind of movie where people have things like rattlesnake chili cook-offs. And, because you're not thrown off enough, Cynthia Rothrock shows up as a hillbilly martial artist competing in the annual Tough Person Contest. On the other hand, some things are immutable. The Hazzard County speed traps; Bo wielding that bow and arrow; the bar brawl at the Boar's Nest; Rosco P. Coltrane (now Boss Rosco) just being ridiculous. The Dukes are back, still making their way the only way they know how. But that's still just a little bit more than the law would allow.
Three years later, country comes to La-la-land in HAZZARD IN HOLLYWOOD. Hoping to make enough money to build a hospital in Hazzard, the Dukes make their way to Hollywood to sell tape recordings of famous country singers who've performed in past Hazzard County hoe-downs. And then a thug with an eye patch starts taking potshots at them. The Mad Russian Igor, a Los Angeles crime lord, wants those tapes, as well. And then, as if the Dukes aren't already neck deep, Rosco P. Coltrane gets involved with a loan shark.
Pitting the Dukes' countrified sensibilities against the urbanity of Los Angeles isn't anything new. Enos Strate had his own short-lived series back in the day when he first transferred to the LAPD. There was even an episode in ENOS in which Bo and Luke visited Enos in LA. It's no surprise that Bo and Luke and all get the best of the Angelinos (those cholos never stood a chance) and manage to adapt to their more cosmopolitan environs (it's their movie, after all). In LA, the oblivious Enos is a babe magnet, Daisy is a fearless stunt woman, Bo and Luke attend a block party hosted by vatos, and that the Russian crime lord is hooked on country line dancing. There is new love and lost love. Toby Keith sings. John Schneider sings a duet of a Merle Haggard ballad. Mac Davis is the Balladeer and he's on screen and isn't too shy about breaking the fourth wall. Just a normal day for them Dukes.
No special features on these discs. That sucks.
Of course for the die hard fans there's still "Enos" to be released plus the animation show but for me my collection ends here and i'm happy to have all 7 seasons plus this dvd with the tv movies.
