The Dukes of Hazzard - Plot - Netflix
Hazzard County is having a reunion festival, while Uncle Jesse faces a lawsuit filed by Mama Josephine Maxx for access across Duke property to the Hazzard swamp, where she intends to build a theme park; Jesse refused access in order to preserve the swamp. Residents are angry with Jesse, as the theme park would bring jobs and revenue to Hazzard County. Cooter Davenport, now a Congressman, arrives to meet Jesse at the Duke farm. Bo Duke, now a professional racer, arrives thereafter, followed by Daisy Duke, who has been at graduate school getting a PhD in ecology after a bitter divorce. Luke Duke, now a smokejumper for the forestry service, arrives at the farm. Jesse then tells them about Maxx's lawsuit. Everyone is surprised to learn that sheriff Roscoe is now also the county boss after he inherited Boss Hogg's “empire” when he died. The Dukes get suckered into an overland car race to determine whether or not Maxx gets access to the swamp. Enos Strate arrives from Los Angeles, where he is working as an officer with the LAPD. After 11 years in storage, the Dukes repair their General Lee car for the race and then take it for a test run, but the car is overturned by an unknown assailant. Cooter repairs the General while the Dukes spend time at the Boar's Nest, now in a new location. Bo recognizes the men who ran them off the road, including a disbarred race driver named Kam Cutler, who they learn was hired by Mama Maxx to win the race. After a bar fight with Maxx's men, the Dukes return to Cooter, who warns them that the General cannot sustain another attack. When Luke begins considering a few dirty tricks of their own, Jesse tells them that they will run the race fairly, and that no causeway can be built to the Hazzard Swamp because the ground will not support such a thing, due to the lack of supporting bedrock. Jesse points to a survey that the Army Corps of Engineers made when they planned the same thing in 1941 as a shortcut to Fort Hooker, only to abandon the idea. He also mentions that Mama Maxx knows about it. At the Hazzard Swamp, Daisy and Enos have a picnic and he confesses the only reason he returned to Hazzard was so he could ask her to marry him, which she accepts. The Dukes take a Federal Ecological report to Roscoe and tell him if he builds on the swamp without filling out the government form they have brought to him, he may face a federal investigation. Mama Maxx has her men kidnap Daisy after learning that she spotted gallium arsenide ore in the swamp. Maxx will only release Daisy if Bo and Luke lose the race. Daisy convinces Mama Maxx to have her men run errands for her wedding, stating that the lack of wedding preparations will cause unwanted attention. After a passionate request, Maxx agrees to help with the wedding plans herself. Maxx eventually accepts Daisy's request to be her matron of honor. The race between Kam and the Dukes begins, with Kam driving in Buzz's “Double Zero,” the only car to beat the General Lee in an overland car race. The “Double Zero” gets far enough away from the General Lee to pass through the first checkpoint and then Kam switches with Buzz and takes off in a “Double Zero” replica that has an illegal stock car engine to help him win. The Dukes, after evading a trap set by Mama Maxx's men, head off the road and over to a cotton mill, where they find Daisy. The Dukes recruit local boxers Bubba and Bertha Jo to help them fight off Maxx's mercenaries and rescue Daisy. Ryker, one of the mercenaries, is put into the trunk of the General Lee before the Dukes take off to finish the race. The Dukes spot two “Double Zeros” on the side of the road and pull over. Buzz tells the Dukes that he and Kam have been racing Kam's car with an illegal engine and that he was supposed to finish the race in Buzz's car, but now it will not start, after Buzz secretly removed the engine's distributor rotor. Kam flees the county before authorities discover he cheated in the race, while Buzz and the Dukes agree to finish the race fairly. The Dukes win, and Luke then pulls Ryker out of the trunk and tells Roscoe he kidnapped Daisy on Maxx's orders so they would lose the race. Roscoe tells Mama Maxx how stupid he believes she is, stating that he conned her into building the theme park. Roscoe had obtained a sample of gallium arsenide ore and put it in the swamp so Maxx would find it. He also reveals that the FBI sent him a list of the country's ten most wanted real estate con artists, with Maxx at number one. Roscoe reveals that his plan was inspired by a quote in Boss Hogg's memoir that offered advice regarding con artists. Daisy prevents Roscoe from arresting Mama Maxx so she can attend the wedding. Before they are married, a bus pulls up and the driver turns out to be Daisy's ex-husband, L.D., who is lost. After seeing L.D., Daisy realizes she is not ready to get married again. Bubba and Bertha Jo get married instead.
