New Fangled Dukes

I was a HUGE Dukes of Hazzard fan as a kid .My brother and I were even allowed to stay up later on the day that it come on so we would never miss it . I had the t-shirt , the lil Daisy dukes and the little plastic high heels My idols as a child were Daisy Duke and Wonder Woman
I am a bit disturbed at the
new movie coming out , for several reasons .First of all Daisy is NOT a blonde ...GRRRRRR as much as I like Jessica Simpson and all , she has no business being Daisy ,atleast not without a brunette wig on . I mean why not someone like Carmen Electra or maybe even Sandra Bullock .I actually think the perfect one to play her would be Gretchen Wilson but who knows if she can act How believeable is it that Stiffler is playing Bo ?
Burt Reynolds is WAY to small to be boss hog . I mean isn't it kind of missing the point of his name there ? In the original show he was a big slob that ate all the time . GRRRR I am just annoyed . Also they redid the song !!!!!!!!!! Can you believe this . I know I am ranting on and on ..The very sad part of it all is I know I will go see it .I have to . I just am not believing that they could not have casted this movie a lot better then they did .... Does anyone else plan on seeing this movie ?

Ok you guys be the Judge :

Original Daisy ?:

Or the new Daisy ?:


  1. Here via Michele's Meet & Greet, and also to say thanks for stopping by my place!

    And believe it or not, despite my location, I have never seen an episode of Dukes of Hazzard and have no intention of seeing the movie.

    If they find out, they may revoke my right to live in Kentucky.

    It WAS set in Kentucky, wasn't it? Perhaps it was Tennessee and I'm off the hook!

    Hello, Michele sent me!

    That just goes to show once again that Hollyweird does not always, (or hardly-ever), know what it's doing. ;)

    well normally I would say Catherine Bach but I'm starting to feel that Jessica grows on you after a while.

    but then again so does a fungus.

  4. i am totally with you on the casting. probably the only good casting move is willie nelson ;) i have NO idea why they couldn't dye jessica's hair. that totally throws the Daisy character off for me. and as for bo and luke, i don't buy either one of these actors playing them. i will not be seeing this movie.

  5. i wish they would just leave it alone!! I guess they've run out of ideas and gotta remake. Just like willy wonka.

    Hello. michelle sent me.

  6. Hey baby... Michele sent me....

    Jessica is no Daisy Duke. They shoulda used my band camp chick.... j/k....

    Anyway... can't wait to see the movie so I'll have something to bitch about... I already know I'll love it and hate it at the same time....

    I really think it is marketed towards folks who have heard of the Dukes, but weren't the ones who stayed up every week to watch....

    I definitely think the original Daisy Duke was way better than Jessica could ever be. As my son says, "she's a poser." No replacing the original on this one. Oh and...Michele sent me.

  8. I'm with you all the way, original Daisy.
    Michele sent me! :)

    Greetings from Hong Kong... Michele sent me. I would definitely take the original Daisy... she even looks a tad like my wife. Have a great weekend.

  10. Orginal Dasiy!! I don't even plan to watch and I always watched this on TV... Bad bad choice Hollywood made, IMO.

  11. Yes, the original Daisy wins for me, even when Jonathan Kent was one of the Dukes!

    Over here from Michele.

  12. Hi what a nice site you have here. Here by way of my comments.

    I thought Jessica did wear a brunette wig for the movie. I thought I saw on MTV show where she took one off when Nick got there. I could be wrong though.

  13. Wow they changed the song.. how could they? I mean.. come on.. I knew Jessica did some songs for the movie.. but the dukes song? We should rebel.

  14. I'm right there with you... the Dukes of Hazzard was a family favorite when I was a kid. We never missed an episode. I have to go with the orginal Daisy. Jessica Simpson just doesn't fit the part. I can't wait to see the new movie though.....

  15. Definitely Catherine as Daisy. Jessica is just way too much of a train wreck.

  16. Hollywood is running low on ideas and was strapped for casting. It's all there is to it. The original cast is my preference and I have absolutely no plans of seeing this movie (even rented).

  17. I REFUSE to see the new movie!! It is just plain WRONG!!! I was the BIGGEST Dukes fan. I was about 8 years old when it was big and I watched it religiously. The casting on the this movie is awful. Did I mention I will NOT be watching the new one?? :)

  18. Usually, I'm a sucker for a well built blonde... but she has to be intelligent.

    Sorry, but that puts Cath one up on Jess any day! ;)
