Dukes of Hazzard DVD Review

Dec 27, 2006

You may have never seen the original Dukes of Hazzard TV show, but that doesn't mean this flick is only good for the 'rents. With Seann William Scott, Johnny Knoxville and Jessica Simpson rounding out the cast, this flick has serious potential. So does it get two thumbs up or fall face first in the mud? Get our review right here!

Dukes of Hazzard - Hillbilly Hijinks

Bo and Luke Duke are cousins who are closer than brothers. They are completely inseparable, and are always getting into crazy predicaments together. They tear up the streets of Hazzard, Georgia in Bo's 1969 Dodge Charger called The General Lee and make the ladies swoon wherever they go. But, there are a couple people in Hazzard that would like to see lock up the Duke boys and throw away the key - namely Georgia Commissioner Boss Hogg and his lackey Sheriff Roscoe P. Coltrane.

Dukes of Hazzard - Crime Fighting Duo

Bo and Luke may not look like your average superheroes, but they're definitely crusaders of justice. When these kissin' cousins find out that Boss Hogg (played by Burt Reynolds) is going to strip mine their farm and several other farms in Hazzard for coal, they do everything in their power to stop him. Boss Hogg throws a lot of wrenches in their plan though and that's where most of the laughs come in. Seann William Scott (who plays Bo Duke) and Johnny Knoxville (who plays Luke Duke) pull of their parts perfectly. Their southern charm and hillbilly antics will have you laughing through the whole movie! And let's not forget the boys' eye-catching cousin Daisy Duke, played by Jessica Simpson. Everywhere Daisy goes, the men of Hazzard follow. And she's not just a pretty face - she lends a hand whenever she can to get her fave cousins out of trouble.

When the Dukes aren't chasing after girls, they're being chased by the police! The General Lee is an indestructible machine that is put to the test time and time again. Flying through the air over collapsed bridges, freeway onramps and anything else that gets in the Duke boys' way. There's even a backwoods, Indy-style race that pits Bo against world circuit racer Billy Prickett. The car chases scenes do tend to drag a little, but if you're into high-flying action, you won't mind.

Dukes of Hazzard - DVD Features

If you loved the movie, you are going to love the DVD extras! Deleted scenes, gag reels and a Jessica Simpson music video are all included on this disc. You'll also want to check out the many featurettes like Daisy Dukes: The Short Short Shorts and How to Launch a Muscle Car 175 feet in 4 Seconds.

Dukes of Hazzard - Bottom Line

If you're looking for a deep story, with complex characters, Dukes of Hazzard isn't a flick you want to check out. But if you're up for exciting car chases, silly storylines and good ol' country music, then grab your cowboy boots and head on down to the theater. Jessica Simpson probably won't win an Oscar and Seann and Johnny definitely won't be walking away with Golden Globes, but Dukes of Hazzard is a great, feel-good flick that'll have your toes tappin'. You may even wanna see it more than once!
