Sexist TV prequel is much raunchier than the show.

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

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

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.

This movie really didn't need to be made. It's suppose to be a prequel to the story that only ends up messing up the time line. They throw Willie and Harland in for star appeal and it doesn't exactly do anything besides show they were desperate to try and capitalize on a piece of history. It's one rude joke or innuendo after the other that never fire correctly. You are better of just re watching the previous Dukes of Hazzard movie with Johnny and Sean.
