Dan Aykroyd and John Belushi as the Blues Brothers

"They're not gonna catch us. We're on a mission from God." - Elwood Blues, The Blues Brothers (1980)

Universal Studios, 133 minutes.

Directed By: John Landis


Dan Aykroyd - Elwood

John Belushi - Jake

James Brown - Reverend Cleophus James

Cab Calloway - Curtis

Ray Charles - Ray

Aretha Franklin - Mrs. Murphy

Domestic Box Office Gross: $57,229,890

Synopsis: Jake and Elwood have 11 days to raise $5000 to save the nun operated orphanage where they were raised. While battling Illinois Nazis, a psychotic ex girlfriend, the state patrol and some Good Old Boys the Blues Brothers embark on their"mission from god."

Fact: Upon The Blues Brothers release, the film held the world record for number of cars wrecked.

Trivia: The man in the Toys R Us, holding the Grover and asking for the Miss Piggy is none other than Frank Oz, who is the voice for both characters.

Movie Mistake: When Elwood crashes through the Oldsmobile store into the mall, he damages the passenger side headlight. When leaving the mall, the headlight is back to normal.

My Take: I love this movie. I was a fan of Jake and Elwood when they were on Saturday Night Live. The Blues Brothers has great characters, quotes and an amazing soundtrack. I won't lie I had trouble picking which quote to pick, I mean there's "I hate Illinois Nazis.", "Your women. I want to buy your women. The little girl, your daughters... sell them to me. Sell me your children." and the item inventory when Jake is released. I ended up going with the quote that makes you go 'oh yeah, what a great flick!'

      Definitely a great movie flick and a great pair for the Blues Brothers. Belushi left us much too soon. Those first few years of SNL were the best - especially when Buck Henry hosted.
