The Beginning or Perhaps The End
As for it being a new Dukes adventure, NOT SO! More of the same "save the farm" high-jinks by new faces, with the exception of Willie Nelson recast as Uncle Jesse. There is a whole new twist on the birth of the General Lee, oddly it delivers a great one-liner by Bo as it is being pulled from a pond. But if you are a Dukes of Hazzard fan like me, this is what entertains us. We don't care much about previous film experience of the actors or over duplication of the plots. Shucks, just give us some jump and chase scenes with the General and we are in our best homegrown, county boy (or girl) heaven. Unfortunately the language and some scenes might be too strong for some viewers. But that is why the ratings are provided on the DVD box. Keep the little Dukes and Dukettes away from this one. I have seen three versions so far, the mildly edited Premier on television, the Un-rated and the (R)rated versions. The new Daisy Duke delivers a visual knock-out punch in the later half of the film and the producers apparently are banking on that stimulus. I do recommend this film for all Dukes of Hazzard fans, not so sure it will increase the ranks on it's own merits but it will certainly provide some variety in between the re-runs and the DVD box sets we probably all have and watch. But I'll take any new Dukes of Hazzard film anyway or anytime.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
