John Landis (Animal House, ¡Three Amigos!) directs John Belushi (Animal House, Saturday Night Live) and Dan Aykroyd (Ghostbusters, Trading Places) in this musical cult favorite, as the brothers accept a "mission from God" aided only by their beloved Bluesmobile and a bevy of superstar cameos from Ray Charles, Aretha Franklin, James Brown, John Lee Hooker, and Cab Calloway.

In attempt to save the St. Helen of the Blessed Shroud orphanage, Jake and Elwood Blues decide to get their band back together and put on one last gig to raise the $5,000 they need. Little do they know that a mysterious bazooka wielding woman, a country-western band called the Good Ol' Boys, SWAT teams, the entire police department, firefighters, the Illinois National Guardsmen, the Military Police, and the Illinois chapter of the neo-Nazis are all out to get in their way.
