The Blues Brothers Movie Review Summary

Actors: Dan Aykroyd, John Belushi

Detailed plot synopsis reviews of The Blues Brothers

Dan Aykroyd and John Belushi introduced Elwood Blues and Joliet Jake on Saturday Night Live, and that's how they got their own movie. Elwood recruits musicians for his group by touring Chicago and other places. Cab Calloway makes a fabulous cameo, and the chase scenes are hilarious! Although Elwood goes to jail in the end, he'd come back to form another new group in Blues Brothers 2000.
