Synopsis

John Landis's classic musical action comedy starring John Belushi and Dan Aykroyd as the infamous Jake and Elwood Blues, a pair of felonious brothers who reform their old R&B band to save the Chicago orphanage that was their childhood home. Naturally, the law is determined to stop them. But with help from a host of music legends (Ray Charles, Aretha Franklin, Cab Calloway and the right-onorable James Brown) nothing can stop their righteous cause. Ready for an auto-wrecking, Nazi-bashing, shade-wearing, tailfeather-shaking riot? Hit it.
