Description: Cousins Bo (Seann William Scott) and Luke (Johnny Knoxville) Duke, with the assistance of their sexy cousin Daisy (Jessica Simpson) and Uncle Jesse (Willie Nelson), must save the Duke family farm from destruction by the town's corrupt and evil commissioner Boss Hogg (Burt Reynolds). Their efforts constantly find the "Duke Boys" eluding authorities in "The General Lee", the boys' orange 1969 Dodge Charger that keeps them one step ahead of the dimwitted antics of the small southern town's Sheriff Roscoe P. Coltrane (M.C. Gainey).
Comments: Okay, so a lot of people are going to tear this film apart. Perhaps people take their movies way to seriously. Which is unfortunate, because this is not a serious film. It's a fun film.

When Jay Chandrasekhar stepped up to make a film about this old TV show, obviously he looked at the series and said, "Well, it's not very intelligent, is it? But I can see the appeal. After all, it is a whole lot of fun."

And that's how he made the film. He took a fun show from the early 80's and made it into a fun show for the new millennium. Don't go see this movie if you're (God forbid) expecting to see sultry Jessica Simpson in an Academy Award winning role. Or hoping that Johnny Knoxville will be playing an intelligent environmental hero in a sleek super-action blockbuster reminiscent of the Matrix.

Folks, we're going back to Hazzard County. Moonshine, cajun crawfish, dirt track auto-racing, shotgun weddings, and inbreeding. Is any of this sinking in yet?

This is just a show about a family of moonshine bootleggers who have a really fast car and fight some of the dumbest criminal minds East of the Mason Dixon line. If you want something brilliant, this isn't it. But if you want to sit back, laugh, and have a good time, head on down to Hazzard County, where the girls wear short shorts, and the moonshine flows like honey.

Also, expect some cameos from the boys of Broken Lizard, and a throwback to Chandrasekhar's other big hit "Super Troopers". After all, the comedy is in the same style.
