Ben Jones, who played Bo and Luke Dukes trusty mechanic, Cooter, says after reading the script, hes decided, that movie is not a reflection of our show...its not clean, family entertainment.
He says the Jessica Simpson/Johnny Knoxville remake is full of twentysomething slacker toilet humor and the only similarity it shares with the TV series is the General Lee and Daisys shorts.
Jones also says the flick is miscast. If he were the one making the decisions, he would have hired Danny DeVito to play Boss Hogg instead of giving the role to Burt Reynolds.
He also feels Nashville folks like Faith Hill and Tim McGraw would depict the Duke cousins more accurately.
As for the script, Jones says, these folks dont seem to realize you cant spoof a spoof.
