Its more than likely that the hit television series, The Dukes of Hazzard, which ran from 1979-1985 and spawned several imitators, was itself inspired by Burt Reynolds 1977 movie, Smokey and the Bandit and its sequels. Its appropriate then that Burt appears in the movie version of Dukes in the role of Boss Hogg, Hazzard Countys corrupt commissioner.
The Dukes of Hazzard follows the adventures of good old boy cousins, Bo (Seann William Scott) and Luke (Johnny Knoxville) Duke, who, with the help of their eye-catching cousin, Daisy (Jessica Simpson) and moonshine running uncle, Jesse (Willie Nelson), try and save the family farm from being destroyed by Boss Hogg. Their efforts constantly find the Duke Boys eluding authorities in The General Lee, their famed 1969 orange Dodge Charger that keeps them one step ahead of the dim-witted antics of the small southern towns Sheriff Roscoe P Coltrane (M C Gainey).
As they say in the classics - Yeeehaaah!
