Blues Brothers double bill. In 'The Blues Brothers', 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 stage a fund-raising gig with their old band, they have God on their side but everyone else against them.
Packed with car chases, music and cameo appearances (including Ray Charles, James Brown, Aretha Franklin and John Lee Hooker).
In 'Blues Brothers 2000', Elwood emerges from a long stretch in prison to find the world has changed: his partner Jake has gone, the band have broken up and the orphanage where he was raised has been demolished.
However, meaning is brought back to his life when he embarks upon a mission to save the soul of a wayward youngster.
The band must be reconvened, with the help of a new recruit (John Goodman), in order to compete at Queen Moussette's Battle of the Bands whilst avoiding the attentions of the police.
As in the first film there are cameos from a host of blues and soul musicians.
