Finally got around to watching the remake of the Dukes of Hazzard. It was actually entertaining, especially due to the casting choices.
Burt Reynolds as Boss Hogg - didn't have a real big part, but was neat to see him doing anything these days.
Willie Neslon as Uncle Jessie - complete with pot smoking references.
But of course, the real story was Jessica Simpson as Daisy. Now, I always thought she was cute, but in this? She was smokin' hot. (and the video
after the movie?, yikes!). Even the wife was thinking the same.
The movie itself was actually better than I expected, not much more than an extended episode, but I think they did a real homage to the original
series. All the elements you expect (Boars Nest, Cooter, Enus, pond jumping, explosive arrows, etc.).
Was it GREAT cinema? No...but entertaining and nostalgic.
