Watch: The Dukes of Hazzard: The Beginning 2007 123movies, Full Movie Online – In this prequel re-telling of the famous 1979-1985 TV series of the same name, the teenage mischievous Duke boys, cousins Bo and Luke (Jonathan Bennett and Randy Wayne), are arrested for reckless driving and possession of illegal fireworks. They are sent to live with their Uncle Jesse (Willie Nelson) at his farm in rural Hazzard County in an unnamed southwestern state. Bo and Luke’s orphaned dowdy cousin Daisy (April Scott) soon joins them hoping to find a place in her life. Jesse is also a moonshiner who struggles to make ends meet and soon employs a willing Bo and Luke to be his runners to deliver his ‘special’ White Lighting whiskey to all parts of the county after observing their driving skills using a fixed-up orange-painted 1969 Dodge Charger which they named ‘The General Lee’. But it doesn’t take long for Bo and Luke to find a worthy opponent in the form of the cigar-chomping J.D. ‘Boss’ Hogg (Christopher McDonald), the corrupt city commissioner of the nearby small town and county seat capital of Hazzard who makes it his mission to stop the Duke Boys in any way possible..
Plot: When mischievous teenaged cousins Bo and Luke Duke are arrested, both boys are paroled to the care of their Uncle Jesse in Hazzard, sentenced to a summer of hard work. It’s not long before the Duke boys learn of Boss Hogg’s plans to foreclose on Uncle Jesse’s farm. Together, with help from their cousin Daisy, Bo and Luke vow to save the family’s property and its storied history of producing the best moonshine in all of Hazzard.

I just got it yesterday and it’s not bad but a couple things just didn’t quite tie in with the 2005 movie or the series, like how the Duke boys first got the General Lee was told differently in an episode in season 7. The location of Uncle Jesse’s still was somewhere else on the farm and one of the doors on the General Lee opened while the other was welded shut. Also, they had the Dixie horn in the car already, but in the 2005 movie, Cooter and his friends have it installed while they are fixing the General Lee up.
They only jumped the General Lee once in the whole movie. Even though it was a huge jump, it didn’t seem very convincing.
Most of the characters were better suited for their role, and they even had a somewhat more goofier and silly Rosco, which is the Rosco that I liked in the series. I think Cooter was too weird though.
April Scott definitely looked way better than Jessica Simpson.
They even had some funny jokes worth laughing at in this movie.
Fun film but rather disjointed
This movie is rather entertaining but has some glaring flaws.
To start with if we are to believe that this version of the Dukes tale is “the beginning” then the story should begin at an earlier time instead of the present day.
Additionally, the story isn’t particularly compelling and doesn’t reveal anything new about the origins of the Dukes of Hazzard but is instead another opportunity for the star of this franchise, the General Lee, to shine one more time which it indeed does. Humor and silliness is abundant and the eye candy is there but one is left with the feeling that this movie wasn’t properly executed which perhaps explains why Warner’s decided to skip releasing this at the box office.
