Expanding on their Saturday Night Live characters, John Belushi and Dan Aykroyd star as Jake and Elwood Blues, two white boys with black soul. Sporting cool shades and look-alike suits, Jake and Elwood are dispatched on a "mission from God" by their former teacher, Sister Mary Stigmata (Kathleen Freeman). Said mission is to raise $5000 to save an orphanage. In the course of their zany adventures, the Blues Brothers run afoul of neo-Nazi Henry Gibson, perform the theme from Rawhide before the most unruly bar crowd in written history, and lay waste to hundreds of cars on the streets and freeways of Chicago. In case you aren't swept up in the infectuous nuttiness of the brothers Blue, you might have fun spotting film's legion of guest stars, including James Brown, Cab Calloway, Aretha Franklin, Ray Charles, John Candy, Carrie Fisher, Steve Lawrence, Twiggy, Paul Reubens (aka Pee-Wee Herman), Frank Oz, and Steven Spielberg. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi.

What can one say about John Belushi and Dan Aykroyd. These two alumnus of Saturday Night Live easily transfer their comedic talents from the small to the large screen. In this musical comedy, aside from all the laughs and highjinx, and a mysterious woman (Carrie Fisher) seeking their demise, the Blues Brothers selfless and noble goal is to save the orphanage they were raised in from foreclosure. Appearances by Cab Calloway, Ray Charles, Aretha Franklin and James brown, make this classic a rare gem of a movie well worth the price.

This classic movie is always fun. The anniversary edition is extra special because of the extra scenes, and you can really see the whole movie with the widescreen presentation. Also, the price was unbelievably low -- a great value!

One of my all time favorite movies--it's right up there with Animal House, Caddyshack, SlapShot, and Airplane. The thing about this movie that sets it apart from common comedies is the music. It features classic tunes by Aretha Franklin, Ray Charles, Cab Calloway, Sam & Dave, and many others--not to mention the famous Blues Brother Band which features the best jazz & R&B artists in history. Overall, this movie is a timeless classic with entertainment value that can't be matched by any modern movie.

It was simple to find the movie on Walmart.com and the site-to-store feature is fantastic. I'll definitely use it again. Of course, the movie is hilarious as well and has a star studded cast!
