Ahh The Blues Brothers... one of the best movies ever made. Not only did i have a great punchline, "We're on a mission from God" it had great music and some of the best chase scenes ever... EVER!!!!
Jake Blues is released from prison after serving three years for armed robbery. Jake is at first irritated at being picked up by his brother Elwood in a battered former police car, instead of the Cadillac the brothers used to own, but Elwood explains the car's advantages. The brothers visit their childhood home, a Catholic orphanage. They learn the institution will be closed unless $5,000 in property tax is collected. Jake indicates they can quickly obtain the funds, but the orphanage director Sister Stigmata refuses to accept any stolen money. Oh, also, she floats. No, seriously. SHE FUCKING FLOATS.
Anyway, the brothers visit an evangelical church service, led by a minister played by James Brown, where Jake has an epiphany: they can legitimately raise the funds by re-forming their rhythm and blues band.
Elwood's running a yellow traffic light is noticed by two Illinois State Police troopers, and after pulling him over and using their electronic database, the troopers learn of his suspended license. When they attempt to arrest Elwood, he speeds off, leading a high-speed chase through the Dixie Square Mall. It doesn't get higher than 9.9 on the awesometer. As if a cop chase wasn't awesome enough, through a bloody shopping center was epic.
The middle part of the story moves through what i like to call, the "band grab". In other words for people whose metal capacity that are running at maximum, Jake and Elwood go rounding up the members of the original band and get them back together so they can make happy time in the back room. Nah, that never happened although they manage to piss off some cowboys after playing a gig at a country bar (much beer was drunk).
