This story is about the original Cooter getting upset after reading the script from the new Dukes of Hazzard movie. It has nothing to do with the tee shirt, I just wanted to post it because it’s so darn adorable!! So back to cyber Taylor Trash: According to the Drudge Report; Ben Jones (who played Cooter in the tv series) is urging fans NOT to see the movie! He describes the movie as: “profanity-laced script with blatant sexual situations that mocks the good clean family values of our series.” Hmmm, he’s got my attention so far. Here is more from a letter posted on his website…
“Frankly, I think the whole project shows an arrogant disrespect for our show, for our cast, for America’s families, and for the sensibilities of the heartland of our country.
Unless they clean it up before the August 5th release date I would strongly recommend that true blue Dukes fans hold their noses and pass this one up. And whatever you do, don’t take any youngsters to see it. As plain as I can put it, the only thing this movie shares with our show is the title. Sure it bothers me that they wanted nothing to do with the cast of our show, but what bothers me much more is the profanity laced script with blatant sexual situations that mocks the good clean family values of our series. Now, anybody who knows me knows that I’m not a prude. But this kind of toilet humor has no place in Hazzard County. Rather than honoring our legendary show, they have chosen to degrade it.”
Ya know, ole’ Cooter may have a point there! Although I don’t think it will stop hoards of men ages 5-105 from seeing Jessica Simpson in her smokin’ hot bikini!! If you would like to read more of Cooter’s candid confession, log on to: www.cootersplace.com
