Dukes of Hazzard

As an adolescent boy, the Dukes of Hazzard was the perfect show. Fast cars, dynamite arrows and Daisy Duke... what more could a boy ask for (pre-cable, that is)?

I'm not sure what to think of the movie coming out. I'm still trying to figure out is they are making fun of the original show or trying to do a serious remake. If their not making fun, why do they have Stifler Duke?

And Jessica Simpson as Daisy Duke? Well, she is certainly smoking hot, but will Daisy just be a southern fried ditz? Seems like she used to be smarter than the Duke boys.

The one stroke of casting genius in this movie is Willie Nelson as Uncle Jessie. Too bad Waylon Jennings isn't still around. That makes me wonder... will the movie stick to the show's country twang roots, or will it succumb to Hollywood rock (as it appears in the trailer?
