The Dukes Of Hazzard

2

“Do I get jealous of the things the boys get to do in this movie? No, not really. I think they get jealous of me because I don’t have to work hard at all,” says pop queen Jessica Simpson on a featurette wholly devoted to her “short short shorts”. “The only thing I have to do is put on a pair of short shorts and smile.” And, there within, lies the deep thinking behind The Dukes Of Hazzard...

As yet another small-screen rehash, Dukes roared onto screens raking in respectable box office despite a critical mauling. A knockabout comedy with tongue firmly in cheek, it really only has three things going for it: frontmen Johnny Knoxville and Seann William Scott are one and Simpson’s skimps, of course, are two. But, let’s face it, the real star of the screen is the 1969 orange Dodge Charger from the original show – jumping, tearing and crashing through deep south USA.

This Unseen version features a wealth of raunchier moments – mostly tits and ass – deemed too sexy for cinemas, alongside a medley of rated and unrated deleted and extended moments. Again, featuring copious amounts of T’n’A. Unsurprisingly, director Jay Chandrasekhar failed to step into the booth for a chat-track, preferring instead to pop up throughout the numerous featurettes musing about his love for the original and the former Mrs Nick Lachey’s itty bitty shorts.
