The Blues Brothers (1980)

Rating: ***
Director: John Landis
Cast: John Belushi, Dan Ackroyd, Carrie Fisher, John Candy

The Blues Brothers (Dan Ackroyd and John Belushi) are on a mission from God to put the band back together in order to raise money for an orphanage. An uneven film, it is often hilariously fun and then dreadfully dull, but the final car chase at the end of the film will forever hold a place a history. It is excessive, extreme, and completely over the top. Good stuff.
