Hammerman Ikon Film Guide

Blues Brothers
Director: John Landis
Cast: John Belushi, Dan Aykroyd, Carrie Fisher, Cab Calloway, John Candy

This long but entertaining music comedy was a flop upon release but it has subsequently become a contemporary classic. Dan Aykroyd and John Belushi are great as two delinquent brothers on a mission from God to save an orphanage. The soundtrack is filled with excellent soul songs, and many of their famous performers have cameos. Followed by Blues Brothers 2000 almost 20 years later.
