Put up your Dukes
Woke up today and went to see "The Dukes of Hazzard." Surprisingly, it was pretty darn good.
I was a big fan of the "Dukes" TV show back in the day — I had a Daisy Duke poster in my room and a General Lee toy car. I didn’t expect the movie to be any good, though.
Well, my expectations went out the window. It’s a funny, well-made film. The car scenes are incredible, and the references to "Super Troopers" and "The Usual Suspects" are hilarious. Seann William Scott — AKA Stifler of "American Pie" Fame — and Johnny Knoxville do a nice job in their roles as Bo and Luke Duke, respectively.
And of course, there’s Jessica Simpson. But this is a family site.
It’s not the funniest movie I have seen this summer — that distinction belongs to the instant-classic "Wedding Crashers." But "Dukes" is worth a trip to the theater.
