The censored Theatrical Cut was compared to the uncut Unrated Edition.

In the summer of 2005, one of the funniest and most successful series of the 70s/80s came into American cinemas: "The Dukes of Hazzard“. The series lasted seven seasons with 147 episodes.

Just as the series the movie is about the two cousins Bo (Seann William Scott) and Luke (Johnny Knoxville) Duke. While Luke tries to conquer every woman in Hazzard County, Bo has something quite different in mind: His car „General Lee“. Every year, Bo participates with the General in the Hazzard Road Rally and wins every year. But this time he has to deal with some other problems first, as the evil Boss Hogg wants get the estate of the Dukes into his hands. Together with their cousin Daisy (Jessica Simpson) who is known for wearing very tight shorts and their Uncle Jesse (Willie Nelson) who is a little bit crazy, they try to prevent this.

For the lucrative PG-13 rating, the movie had to be cut in some scenes. All scenes with nudity or sexual allusions had to be censored, but also some of the pursuits were trimmed.

On the release date in the USA, the Unrated Edition was immediately released together with the Theatrical Cut.
