What's more fun than 10 in the tank and four on the floor? Tom Wopat, John Schneider, Catherine Bach and more of your Dukes of Hazzard favorites together again! In Reunion!, folks come home to Hazzard and discover a plot to turn Hazzard Swamp into a theme park...leaving the swamp critters high and dry. Before you can say wait a durn minute, the cousins are back in the General Lee, tearing up the roads to stop the nefarious scheme. Then they head west for Hazzard in Hollywood and a big-time recording deal. It turns out the deal includes a Russian mobster, a sultry songstress from the 'hood, and a beautiful blonde vice'mayor with the hots for Enos. Double the Dukes - double the down home fun!]]>
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 :)
The Dukes of Hazzard aired on CBS from 1979-1985. I was born almost to the day five months before the series finale aired on February 8, 1985, thus ending the Dukes Of Hazzard tv series. Prior to the ending of the show, two spinoffs were aired "Enos" from 1980-1981 and the animated series "The Dukes" in 1983. Needless to say the Dukes of Hazzard was in its prime during the late seventies and early eighties with three television programs and countless memorabilia from toy cars to bedsheets.
There is no doubt that this show spawned millions of fans throughout its run. I can remember having some toy cars from the Dukes as a child that my parents no doubt bought before the show ended. I was formally introduced to the Dukes of Hazzard in 1996 when the Nashville Network (TNN) started airing re-runs. The re-runs lasted until 2001, when the network was purchased by Viacom, thus becoming the National Network and later on, Spike TV. Needless to say, I became a fan and was hooked. Later on in 2002/2003 I had the honor of meeting Ben Jones who played "Cooter" on the Dukes and had the pleasure of visiting his museums and gift shops in Gatlinburg and Nashville, TN. I have collected Dukes memorabilia ever since, ranging from autographs to personal memoirs.
Anyway, The Dukes of Hazzard: Reunion! and the Dukes of Hazzard: Hazzard in Hollywood were aired during the time that the show was being re-ran on TNN. They were both ratings successes.
The Dukes of Hazzard: Reunion! which was made in 1997 features the original cast, sans Sorrell Booke (he passed away in 1994) getting together to stop a greedy business woman who wants to build an amusement park in Hazzard swamp. This telefilm was written by Gy Waldron who created the original show. It has the same vibe as the series and is a whole lot of fun.
Hazzard in Hollywood which aired in 2000 features all of the Hazzard gang heading to Hollywood in an effort to raise money to build a new hospital in Hazzard. This one was fun too and feels just like an episode of the original series.
Congratulations is in order to Warner Bros. for releasing these films. This is timeless entertainment folks, the like of which we will never see again. They need to make a few more Dukes movies with the original cast. The audience has never left. The Dukes of Hazzard is now being aired nightly on CMT for a whole new generation to enjoy. Yeee-Haaa!!
These TV movies are really an extension of the series, and serve as a continuation of the DVD sets, complete with similar menus. (Though there are no scene selections menus.)
In "Reunion!," the original cast returns in their roles (with the exceptions of Sorrell Booke and Waylon Jennings). The Dukes and Cooter battle the plans of a land developer to turn Hazzard Swamp into a theme park. Meanwhile, former deputy Enos Strate finally asks Daisy Duke to marry him.
In "Hazzard Goes To Hollywood," the town responds to an offer for three million dollars towards a new hospital by raising a half million on their own. Deciding to sell the tapes of live country music performances recorded in Hazzard, the Dukes (now minus Denver Pyle as Uncle Jesse), Rosco, and Cooter head to Hollywood to make a deal. However, things get complicated...
The video quality on these DVDs is excellent, probably just as good as they could have looked when they first aired. I did note that "Reunion" ends a couple seconds short during the Warner Brothers logo, but who cares about missing that?
The DVDs have no special features, except that Disc 1 ("Reunion!") opens with trailers for the 2005 "Dukes of Hazzard" movie, the direct-to-video "Dukes of Hazzard: The Beginning," and the TV show on DVD. In addition, the DVDs are also subtitled and closed captioning.
Great release! If you love the original Dukes of Hazzard show, buy this DVD set! There's rumors that if this sells well, Warner Brothers will release the Dukes spinoffs "Enos" and "The Dukes" animated series!
