Cult comedy movie triple featuring various 'Saturday Night Live' alumni.
Director John Landis's 'The Blues Brothers' (1980) is packed with car chases, music and cameo appearances.
Blues brothers Jake and Elwood (John Belushi and Dan Ackroyd) have sold their souls to rhythm'n'blues, but still lend a hand when the church orphanage in which they were raised is threatened with closure.
Resolving to get their old band together and stage a fund-raising gig, the brothers have God on their side but everyone else against them - and that includes a bunch of Country and Western rednecks, an angry chapter of neo-Nazi thugs, the massed ranks of the Chicago police force, and Jake's psychotic ex-girlfriend Camille (Carrie Fisher).
Landis also directs the raucous college comedy 'National Lampoon's Animal House' (1978), set in the early 1960s.
Delta House is the fraternity that will take anyone no other club wants as a member and makes sure nothing comes in the way of their partying.
The college dean (John Vernon) is desperate to close Delta House down and enlists the help of another fraternity full of sanctimonious white rich boys.
However, Delta House's affiliates are equally determined to continue their partying and high-jinks: culminating in a showdown during the homecoming parade.
Belushi's film career took off after playing the toga-loving John 'Bulto' Bultarsky, and Donald Sutherland puts in an appearance as a free-thinking, pot-smoking professor.
Bill Murray stars in 'Stripes' (1981) as John Winger, a loser (literally) who loses everything that matters to him - his car, apartment and girlfriend - on the same day.
Along with his equally unsuccessful best friend, Russell Zitsky (Harold Ramis), John decides to enrol in the US Army, but discovers that his unit is little more than a refuge for drug-addled psychotic misfits.
Matters are not helped by the no-nonsense Sergeant Hulka (Warren Oates), who is determined to instil some discipline in his unruly recruits.
