Movie Info

Hazzard County's two rowdiest siblings are back and stirring up more mischief than ever in this prequel to the 2005 comedy adventure that explores the origins of the General Lee while finding out just how Bo (Jonathan Bennett) and Luke Duke (Randy Wayne) first incurred the wrath of bumbling greedy businessman Boss Hogg (Christopher McDonald). Hogg is set to foreclose on Uncle Jesse's (Willie Nelson) farm, and in order to save their crusty kin from financial ruin Bo and Luke agree to deliver his potent brand of moonshine to Hazzard County's thirstiest residents. Unfortunately for Bo and Luke, the nefarious Boss Hogg doesn't take kindly to the newly arrived competition. Subsequently thrown in jail and sentenced to sweat out the remainder of the summer on work detail, the crafty Duke boys enlist the aid of sexy cousin Daisy (April Scott) in outrunning the car with the star and making Boss Hogg's life unbearable through a series of outrageous schemes.more

All Critics (5)

Sexist TV prequel is much raunchier than the show.

Common Sense Media

In spite of all the raunch, there is little to laugh at in this hack job of a movie. (Unrated)

DVD Review

never misses an opportunity to throw us a dirt-spewing vehicle, an anonymous topless girl, or both

Full Review… | March 26, 2007

This story felt a lot more like the old television show than the first feature film ever did. It wasn't great cinema, but what do you expect?

I can't say I've grown any more fond of these fellows over the years than when they were first on TV.

Audience Reviews for The Dukes of Hazzard: The Beginning


It was terrible but funny to watch at the same time, because the way they get the car, just made the whole movie just worth watching a second time!

Whoooo! VERY HOT AND MORE SEXY country girls than the original one I ever seen that makes me go horny. And lots of funny on spills and thrills pile up at lightning-fast speed, but interested to see how cousins Bob and Luke Duke met at Hazzard Country with their uncle and introduced to their beautiful cousin, Daisy who was still a virgin and kind of nerd country girl, just before she transformed to hottie.

The only reason I watched this is because I am a fan of the car. And that was the only thing about the movie that was any good. The acting was pretty bad and the jokes were even worse. The girl who played Daisy really needed to eat a sandwich or something.
