Dukes of Hazzard
Short plot summary

Bo (Seann William Scott), Luke (Johnny Knoxville), Daisy Duke (Jessica Simpson) and Uncle Jesse (Willie Nelson) are back from the cult TV series of the 1970's (not quite as culty as Starsky and Hutch).

Boss Hogg is planning to do the dirty on the population of Hazzard via the method of strip mining the place, the only hope is those moonshinin' Duke's.

What our panel of critics thought

"I have never said yeehargh in my life, but you know something? I might just try it after this movie... "

"Reasonably mindless, yet it's a great drive. Just switch off your mind and enjoy the ride."

"Johnny Knoxville is perfectly cast."

"The video for These Boots Are Made For Walking is excellent."

"Seamless integration of CGI pragmas with live action."

"It's a Knoxville Knockout!"

Please tell me the ending. SPOILER

Boss Hogg's (Burt Reynolds) plan to divert interest in Hazzard County, while he gets a court to award him permission to strip mine Hazzard, is foiled by our heroes.

Bo Duke wins the 70th Annual Hazzard Road Rally and then goes to the court house where he meets up with Luke and a crowd to stop Boss Hogg's evil big-hatted machinations...

Other comments

If you like the idea of this movie then you will not be disappointed. Fast driving, crazy stunts, some very good comedy, some very sexy moments (on the DVD release that is, cert 15).

A very satisfactory updating of the almost-cult TV series.
