Blues Brothers is a movie produced in 1978, starring Dan Aykroyd, and John Belushi. Including the musical talents of many legends, including James Brown, Aretha Franklin, Cab Calloway, and Ray Charles, it is a comedy, and also includes one of the best car chases in history. It was the first movie to actually destroy a shopping mall, and the first to film on location in the City of Chicago.
The Blues Brothers themselves are two brothers, "Joliet" Jake and Elwood, who scour the city of Chicago, reuniting their band members, to raise money for the orphanage in which the two grew up. Jake is also being relentlessly pursued by his enurotic and sociopathic ex-fiancee, played by Carrie Fisher ((AKA Princess Leia)). Dan Aykroyd and John Belushi, who portray the two brothers, do all their own singing and dancing. Dan Aykroyd designed the Bluesmobile.
I was watching the Blues Brothers last night, because it's so darn kewl.
