The Dukes of Hazzard Star_onStar_onStar_onStar_on 4.0 4.0 from 1 reviews

Yee-haw! The '70s TV show jumps (literally!) onto the big screen. Good ole Georgia boys, moonshinin' cousins Bo (Scott) and Luke (Knoxville) Duke try to keep their Hazzard County family farm from corrupt county commissioner Boss Hogg (Reynolds), with the help of Uncle Jessie (Nelson), Daisy (Simpson), and Cooter (Koechner). But then, you knew that, because that was the plot of every episode. This version is a little less lighthearted, but it is funny (thanks to script doctoring by the Broken Lizard troupe), and doesn't take itself as seriously as the show. What it does take seriously are the car chases and stunts, which show off the General Lee, the Dukes' beloved 1969 Dodge Charger, to great effect. If you were a fan then, especially of the General, you'll be pleased. If not, you're probably wondering why they bothered at all.

I never watched the show but I liked the movie. Bo and Luke are hotties and southern boys. They are cousins who always find themselves getting into trouble. The boys help their uncle Jessie run a Moonshine business and the Sheriff is always trying to catch them in the act. Bo and Luke drive recklessly around in their sports car they named General Lee. Meanwhile, A corrupt local county commissioner doesn’t care for the Dukes and want to evict them from their farm. So Bo and Luke come up with a plan to save their farm. At one point they end up in jail, then escape in a car chase from the cops! The commissioner’s scheme doesn’t fall through and the Dukes get to keep their farm in the end.
