The Dukes of Hazzard

Visible crew/equipment: As Bo and Luke are surrounded by cops, Luke says "I never get tired of hearing him say that." As the camera pans around the front of the General Lee the camera is visible reflected on the front windshield.


Continuity mistake: When Boss Hogg is at the rally, he is speaking into a microphone. Between every shot of him talking, the black microphone cord is in a different position. It is very noticeable. (01:20:50)


Continuity mistake: One of General Lee's wing-mirrors gets blasted off, but it reappears in a later shot. But once Bo and Luke get General Lee to be fixed, it's missing again.


Continuity mistake: When Daisy Duke is talking to Billy about the sponsorship of his car, her hair on her left side moves between shots, from behind her shoulder to in front of her shoulder, whilst she is talking. This happens with her hair numerous times throughout the movie.

Continuity mistake: The General had to tilt on two wheels to squeeze through the narrow opening of the barn door. When the General crashes through the back of the barn you can see that the barn door is wide open even before the police start to open it further.


Visible crew/equipment: When Bo and Luke are on their way to Atlanta, on the road people drive by them, yelling at them. As one car stops, you can clearly see a large white reflector reflected in that car's window. (00:41:15)


Continuity mistake: When Roscoe and the judge are in the courtroom and the town comes to object the strip mine ordinance, the courtroom doors are held shut by a night stick. When the townspeople start to shake the doors you can see that the night stick slides to an angle, then when they cut to a closer view the night stick is level once again. (01:33:35)

Revealing mistake: There is one shot of the Duke boys in their car talking to Uncle Jessie with the CB radio. You can hear Uncle Jessie respond (through the radio) while Bo/Luke still has the button on the microphone pressed. When the button on the mic is pressed, no sound comes out of a CB radio at all, as they cannot transmit and receive at the same time.

Matty Blast

Continuity mistake: On the way to the courthouse, Bo is about to drive up a ramp that Cooter set up in front of the barricade for him. At the end of the ramp is a big strip of wood, but as Bo rides up it, the wood has vanished in order to allow him to make the jump. (01:31:55)


Revealing mistake: When Bo has won the race and he is heading back into Hazzard County he drives past a carpark that has three General Lee's in it, one Rough Paint scheme and two with the proper paint scheme, as well as police cars.

Suggested correction: It was deliberately done as a tribute to the first episode of The Dukes of Hazzard in which a duplicate General Lee can be seen in one shot during a chase scene.

Continuity mistake: The Dukes are being chased through a field by countless police cars. The car is kicking up mud and dirt and getting dirty. Eventually the General nails a police car on the right front end (left side facing the film viewer). The car is catapulted up onto two wheels and the General miraculously slides through a barn. However, even more miraculous is as the General goes into the barn, the car is completely polished and shows no front end damage at all. The car leaves the barn in pristine condition.

Continuity mistake: When Bo and Luke pick up the General Lee when Cooter has finished fixing it, there are shots flashing between different parts of the new General. One of the shots is of the word Charger, which is located on the headlight cover when it is closed, but in all the shots before and after the headlight cover is open.

Continuity mistake: When Sheriff Rosco enters the bar and the Duke boys stand in front of him, in the shot from behind Bo loosens the strap of the helmet he is wearing but does not unclip it. In the next shot it is suddenly unclipped and loose, and he then removes the helmet. (00:15:50)

Continuity mistake: As Roscoe is trying to get Sheev's attention, the gummy worms in the pots, on the counter, change colour and position. (00:31:10)


The Dukes of Hazzard mistake picture

Continuity mistake: The arrangement of the core samples in the safe changes, just after Sheev walks away. The two samples in the bottom left move to being in the centre. (00:36:50)


Visible crew/equipment: After escaping (with Daisy's help) from the back of the cruiser, as they are being chased, the sun casts a shadow of the camera and equipment. It can be seen on Bo's shirt as they "drift" through the first circle. This is before the big drift scene when Bo keeps driving around and around the circle.

Visible crew/equipment: When the camera pans into General Lee, as the Dukes sit on the Atlanta highway, in the backseat window you can see a red camera dot panning alongside the shot. (00:40:20)


The Dukes of Hazzard mistake picture

Continuity mistake: As Boss Hogg rolls backwards over his desk as Uncle Jesse punches him; watch the items on the desk as he lands on the floor. In the next shot the items are in different positions and some items are different. (00:49:40)


Continuity mistake: When Bo is being chased by Campus Police, he tells everyone to "Get Skinny" as he squeezes through two cars, and leaves quite a little bit of damage on each side. Yet when Bo is driving on the rally track, there's a shot from the right and no damage is visible.

The Dukes of Hazzard mistake picture

Continuity mistake: When Luke and Uncle Jesse are in Boss Hoggs' car, in the racing scene towards the end of the movie, Jesse is just about to start lighting and throwing the jars of moonshine. Just before he does, when he takes a drink from one his right hand is holding the cap on his head and the jar is in his left, but in the next shot the jar is in his right hand and the cap is in the left.

Daisy Duke: They planted a still on our farm.
Pauline: They planted a still? Why would they have to plant a still?
Daisy Duke: 'Cause they're too damn dumb to find our real still.

More trivia for The Dukes of Hazzard

Question: Did DaimlerChrysler re-introduce the Dodge Charger in conjunction with the film, or was their timing merely coincidental?

Answer: Given the massive hype surrounding the film, and the untold publicity it garnered the Charger, I think it's highly unlikely that it was a coincidence, more a cynical marketing strategy.
