After the release of Jake Blues (John Belushi) from prison, he and brother Elwood (Dan Aykroyd) go to visit the orphanage where they were raised by nuns. They learn that the church stopped its support and will sell the place unless the tax on the property is paid within 11 days. The brothers decide to raise money by putting their blues band back together and staging a big gig. They may be on a 'mission from God' but they're making enemies everywhere they go.

This movie is really a classic! Dan Aykroyd and John Belushi at their best. I love the whole laid-back, relaxed, everything-can-be-fixed mentality of the main characters, as well as their addiction to jazz music that seems to always cause them troubles.
Two musicians trying to bring their blues band back together, being on a mission from God! Oh yes, indeed...they are on a mission from God alright. They are on the mission to make us laugh till we can laugh no more...
It is worth watching at least once!

Not funny and not good
- The Blues Brothers review by BP
I have seen 2 John Belushi movies now - this and "1941" - and I have come to the conclusion that John Belushi is one of the least funny funny-men of all time. This film felt like Sister Act meets Thelma Louise, in a bad way. Ponderous, devoid of humour, way too many nonsensical parts, bad acting.. The guest singers were good- apart from that, nothing good.
