Dukes of Hazzard – General Lee is Back!

Set in present day, the story follows the adventures of Bo (Seann William Scott) and Luke (Johnny Knoxville) Duke, who, along with their eye-catching cousin Daisy (Jessica Simpson) and moonshine running Uncle Jesse (Willie Nelson), look to save the family farm from being destroyed by Hazzard County’s corrupt commissioner Boss Hogg (Burt Reynolds). They’ll also have to stay one step ahead of the dimwitted antics of the small southern town’s Sheriff Roscoe P. Coltrane (M.C. Gainey).

Ok service is back to normal now, apologies to my regular readers who aren’t into blogwars and flaming, but well who wouldn’t enjoy a bit of that now and then..

I shall approach the topics again of Malaysia and Singapore and Asia in general soon..

For anyone that wasn’t aware, Dukes of Hazzard[/url] is a well known TV series from around 1979, around my parents generation.

I grew up seeing the re-runs though (Along with Starksy and Hutch and the series from my generation like the A-team!)..

Who didn’t have a little orange General Lee when they were growing up 😀

In all honestly the movie isn’t very true to the orginal series, it’s very slapstick, a lot of sexual humour and the crusaders for good become a pair of dumbass rednecks (Knoxville and William Scott).

In saying that however, I did laugh my ass off. This movie got slated on IMDB running at about 4/10[/url] but I really enjoyed it, it was plain hilarious, extremely stupid and fun, if you are looking for something deep and meaningful, or totally true to the original series don’t look here. Scott basically plays his patented Stifler character all over again.

Uncle Jessie wasn’t Uncle Jessie he was Willie Nelson, the boys weren’t really like the Dukes, and Daisy although a little flirtatious in the series becomes an outright slut in this movie. Although that’s a good thing, Jessica Simpson is basically smoking hot in this movie.

It was cut heavily and it is pretty rude, so don’t take your kids to see it.

If you want to see a completley stupid movie that’s a whole lot of fun, go and see this. The outtakes are very funny.

I’d say it’s worth a watch, especially on Wednesday when the tickets are only 7 bucks!! And yeah I still love the new GSC in 1-Utama.

It’s not great movie with a complex plot, great cinematography or any of that artsy shit, but it made me laugh a lot of times, to me that’s good.

All in all I’d give it a ROFL 6.5/10.

    Nicely done, dude. But I’d recommend to skip and watch on DVD instead, not to support pirated copies, but due to the censorship.

    Not a big fan of Jess-Oh-Bimbo-Simpson though.

    Peace out

  2. jack0 September 8, 2005 at 12:10 am #

  8. ShaolinTiger September 8, 2005 at 1:36 am #

    Was at 1U, nothing else much on..Charlie wasn’t on till 11:20.

    I watched Starsky and Hutch too, just wanna see if they can reproduce the old styles..

  9. ShaolinTiger September 8, 2005 at 1:42 am #

    Pretty hard to say, there’s much more than 10 films I really love..

    But as a guide…(I guess I’ll do a post on it some day)..

    I’d say (In no particular order).

    1) American History X
    2) Good Will Hunting
    3) Jay and Silent Bob
    4) Pulp Fiction
    5) Seven
    6) Replacement Killers
    7) Face Off
    8) Enter the Dragon
    9) Ong Bak
    10) The Usual Suspects

    I could name at least another 20 that are in my top 10 😛

  10. spiller September 8, 2005 at 2:44 am #

    Well said, although was kinda surprise that ‘Ong Bak’ made it into ya list. Hmm..

    Ya, I freakin love movies and naming Top 10 All-Time Favourite is killin me, but still manage to squeeze it through. Here goes (personal preference applied, in no order) :

    1. Terminator 2
    2. Shawshank Redemption
    3. Star Wars (V and VI only)
    4. Seven
    5. Matrix
    6. The Green Mile
    7. Kill Bill Vol 1
    8. Dances with Wolves
    9. Braveheart
    10. We Were Soldiers (was struggling between this and Saving Private Ryan, but I love the way they portray the Vietnam War, not bias to Americans)

    Then again, like ST, at least another 10 can make it into my list.

    Can’t wait for your post on this topic dude. Asta la vista

  11. ShaolinTiger September 8, 2005 at 2:54 am #

    I think I was going more along the lines of movies I can watch over and over again and never get bored towards the end, my all time favourites, like classics are too many to list, and many of them are watch once experiences.

    I’ve watched Ong Bak at least 15 times, so it definately makes it in.

  12. Ghoul September 8, 2005 at 3:25 am #

    random order:

    1) braveheart
    2) starwars (first 3)
    3) seven
    4) shawshank redemption
    5) dead poet society
    6) sepet (yes, i love it, no matter how corny others might think)
    7) shiri (korean film) – actually i like a lot of korean films
    8) my sassy girl (korean film)
    9) alien
    10) others that didn’t get into top10, 🙂

    I am quite happy that all the Broken Lizard crew made a cameo in this film.

    Now I can only imagine Officer Farva with the armadillo cap asking for a litre of cola.

  21. tigerjoe September 8, 2005 at 10:40 pm #

    This was a fun watch, for sure. My date was giving me sly looks tho, everytime Bo called Luke a man-whore. I hav no idea why.

    Does beerbabe drinks from the bottle or pour it out on a glass?

  26. Willy September 13, 2005 at 12:48 am #

    It’s an OK movie, Jessica for sure is better when the lines she has to say is written down on beforehand.

  27. Beerbabe September 13, 2005 at 2:10 am #

    neither. i drink them from disposable paper cups at parties. if i am at a bar, i drink gin tonic or vodka tonic. actually, i don’t drink much beer!

  28. Beerbabe September 13, 2005 at 2:12 am #

    jessica simpson is a walking personification of skanky. i hope she makes as much money as she can when she still can do so before people get sick of her!
