Dukes of Hazzard

Them good ol' boys (Seann Willaim Scott and Johnny Knoxville) are tearing up the big screen in this adaptation of the popular 80s TV show. In the movie, depictions of moonshine running, law evading, swearing, and sexual humor are as ample as Daisy's (Jessica Simpson) physical assets. Get the movie review and more. »

How We Determine Our Grades

After watching a movie with your children or students, we encourage parents and teachers to look for education opportunities to teach with movies. Here are a few discussion topics that can help with lesson plans or teaching in the home.

When, if ever, is breaking the law justified? What means do Bo and Luke use to stop Boss Hogg? What other methods could be used?

How are women portrayed in this movie? What stereotypes are perpetuated? Does Daisy ever use any thing other than her body to deal with a situation?

The Dukes of Hazzard has situations that could be recreated by young adults and teens. What are some of the dangers that are not portrayed in the film? What could be the result of erratic driving, excessive speeds and jumping off ramps? How does the music and fun-loving attitude of the characters color the reality of these stunts?
