1279 – Blues Brothers – 1980 – Directed by John Landis and starring John Belushi and Dan Aykroyd as the Blues Brothers, as Jake and Elwood, respectively. The boys are instructed by Sister Aloysious and her threatening ruler to get $5000 to pay for a tax assessment for their beloved parochial school. Now, officially on a mission from God, they feel extremely comfortable breaking any law they have to in order to get the job done. In Landisville, bumbling idiots like these never get caught or punished; they merely drive into the sunset, usually followed by a half dozen or so black and white police cars. There is a lot of good music in the film, which is probably its strongest point. Belushi was strictly a physical comedian who depended a lot on the straight acting of Aykroyd, but they did make a good pair. The two were helped out by John Candy, Carrie Fisher and Henry Gibson along the way. Recommended.
