Dukes of Hazzard movies DVD cover

 

The Dukes of Hazzard Two Movie Collection (Reunion! / Hazzard in Hollywood) (2000)

by Suzanne 7/10/08

I have to admit that I never watched "The Dukes of Hazzard" when it was on TV. Not once. Maybe about five minutes of an episode, but that's it. It was not my kind of show. It was silly and involved lots of car chases.  However, I have come to respect both of the actors who starred in the show from watching them on "Smallville" and other shows.

There have been many shows over the year that were about people living in the south, or other "country folk". Most of them have been really stupid, like The Beverly Hillbillies, or Gomer Pyle.  Being from California, I just wasn't interested in watching a bunch of yahoos.  From what I have seen of the original show, it was kind of like the Smokey and the Bandit movies. Young handsome guys break the law and have fun, outwitting the stupid sheriff, who was fat and slow.

Now, I know Dukes of Hazzard was a huge hit and had many faithful fans. You just can't judge what another person will like. That's why they made these TV reunion movies and why they made a Dukes of Hazzard feature length movie (although with different actors).

I think the main reason the show was such a success was that the two lead characters, played by John Schneider and Tom Wopat, were not only gorgeous but very likable, and they had clear chemistry with each other and with their co-star, Catherine Bach.  Also, it is a great show for guys who like cars.  Their car, the General Lee, was very popular, but also controversial because it had a confederate flag on the hood.  Back in the 70's when this show started, people didn't make as big of a deal about things like that (although they probably should have).

There are two disks, two movies, in this collection. One is "Reunion" (1997).  This is fun for any fan of the show, I'm sure, since most of the actors returned for it and it was very much like the original show, even though it was almost 20 years later.  The other movie is "Hazzard in Hollywood" (2000), another reunion movie. The characters don't actually spend much time in Hollywood, but I guess someone liked the alliteration. I think "Reunion" is probably the better of the two movies.  Fans should like both, though.   You should, too, if you buy this set! Don't expect any extras, though.
