Underneath the laughter, The Dukes is a film that explores the intricacies of re-defining yourself, dealing with lost fame, and holding onto your true self in changing times.
Its collective message of embracing your talents applies to anyone who's ever found himself at the bottom of the mountain looking up at where they once were.
The film follows a Doo Wop group and their friends as they try to get bu without doing what they once did.
On the late 1960's, The Dukes, Danny and George (Robert Davi and Chazz Palminteri) were on top of the world...a couple of hit records, and all the champagne they could drink. Life was a dream.
Now, in 2007, when no one knows their name, they are estranged from the other group members and can barely pay the bills. Their loyal manager, Lou (Peter Bogdsnovich), repeatedly struggles to find them gigs but The Dukes never seem to catch a break.
