    I liked Catherine Bach much better. When she was auditioning for Daisy Duke she thought that she wasn't going to get the role because she wasn't blonde. But she did get it...thank God. I also don't think Jessica Simpson is a very good actress. She did have some funny lines but she just didn't fit them.

    Cathy Bach by far was the best. I was really disapointed with the movie, why would they get a blonde girl for the part of Daisy when everyone knows she was a brunette.

    They may as well have painted the General Lee Blue, its the same thing as recreating an actor who looks nothing like the part.

    Nobody beats Catherine Bach. Not even an identical twin of Catherine. There is one Daisy Duke and one Daisy Duke only, and that's Catherine.

    Catherine Bach for sure! Can't replace her, or anybody else.

    Beside, J-Simpson is fat now!

    Catherine Bach without a doubt.


    Jessica Simpson sums up all that was wrong with the so-bad-it-was-insulting movie - Miscast, misdirected... it saddens me to think what that movie could and should have been (but that's for another thread).


    I'm rather concerned that there seem to be a lot of "Jessica Simpson cos she's hot" responses on this thread - it kinda sums up the shallow world we live in nowadays where someone can get by on their looks and little else. As far as I'm concerned, Simpson was merely cast for her "celebrity" status and had little understanding of the character.


    Bach was hot BUT gave Daisy a lot of character and warmth at the same time. Simpson just seemed to think she could smile and that was all she needed - though maybe it wasn't all her fault, the movie was so wrong on all levels.


    Although both Dukes movies were pretty bad, at least April Scott in 'The Beginning' returned to giving Daisy some character and making her likable at least.

    Catherine Bach for me. When she called someone "sugar" you knew she meant it. Plus she cooks.
