The Blues Brothers Double Feature [Blu-ray] [2 Discs]

Two musical adventures in one Blu-ray collection. In The Blues Brothers, Jake (John Belushi) and Elwood (Dan Ackroyd) comb the back alleys of Chicago to recruit performers for their orphanage benefit concert, a house-rockin' roster that includes Aretha Franklin, Ray Charles, Cab Calloway and James Brown, with cops, Nazis and country-western bands in hot pursuit. And in Blues Brothers 2000, Elwood (Dan Ackroyd) tries to get the group back together with the help of a 10-year-old orphan (J. Evan Bonifant), a baritone bartender (John Goodman) and his "more or less" stepbrother (Joe Morton), with performances by Eddie Floyd, John Popper and Blues Traveler, Lonnie Brooks, Junior Wells and the Paul Butterfield Blues Band. Extras include theatrical and extended versions of The Blues Brothers, interviews, behind the scenes footage, featurettes about the music, theatrical trailers and a remembrance of John Belushi.

Synopsis

The Blues Brothers
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
