dukefan Posted February 25, 2006 Report Share Posted February 25, 2006 O.k, it's been awhile since i have been in these forums,and if we all remember,i had nothing nice to say about this movie. I am split in two really,'cause I did like the movie,but I had to watch it 4 times to really appreciate it! When I first saw it,I was disgusted,but yet was wowed on seing the General Lee on the big screen. What I didn't like about Bo,was he was unshaven,and swearing,although mild, didn't go down real well with me. I have to say the choice for luke was not as bad as I thaught,and I did like the seemless chemistry of the duke boys in this movie,they looked like they were causins forever. What I didn't agree with,was the stunts they pulled on each other,although it was funny as heck when that machine blew up in their face. But the duke boys would never endanger or hurt each other like these two boys did,(phone book across the face and in the nuts, and riding on the safe stunt.) This was more like the reckless and wacked out dukes,I know bo loved the General Lee,but make love to it and talk to it,ignoring a pretty woman,come on that was a bit extreme. The real Bo duke would have forgotten the general if he had a russian babe like that. All in all, I did like their causin chemistry,sorta a view of the dukes in their wild days or something. I did not like Boss hog at all.First off,I wanted fat and funny,not serious and skinny to the bone. I did not like Roscoe,too dang serious and too good a sheriff. Wanted to see him more clumbsy. I love the driving skills of the driver,man seing the General ride around in that intersection,round and round was so cool,made the General look smart. And the driving in between cop cars as luke and Jessie help Bo continue his race, was amazing. The swerving left and right sliding tires and such,that was so cool to see this cars potential. I did nit pick the General too,didn't like the 2 mirrors,or the new steering wheel or new sterio or the white walls, but I let it slide this time.....lol! Didn't like uncle Jessie either. Didn't like it when willie would smoke pot,or when he went to bosses office and hit him across the jaw! Also didn't like the way he would talk to daisy:"How's it looking good looking?" Jessie would never say that to daisy,him being religious and all.Jessica was so so,but really,daisy never had to be near naked to get info from enos,come on!!! Shoul have had black hair too! I didn't mind cooter,except when he was trying to get daisy or her undershorts for the work he done on general,that was really tasteless.Didn't mind sheev,really weird,but it fit for this movie,I guess??? To sum this up, I do appreciate the fact that the guy playing Bo,had a passion for his car(except the fing in it part),he was furious when he saw what damage came to it,and so excited when it was fixed with a hemi under the hood. I could really feel that part,'cause I would have acted the same way,to see how cooter fixed her all up and a hemi in him,yyeeeeeeeehaaa,yeah,i would be jumping too! I did appreciate the chemistry of the guys as duke causins,they really belonged together,and it was funny,even though it was out of character from the original dukes. What really did it for me though,was the High action with the General Lee,that was some awsome driving and maneuvering(however you spell it) and I really enjoyed that very much.So I give this movie a 5 on a scale of 1-10 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
