Overview
They'll Never Get Caught. They're On A Mission From God

Fantastic double value pack from Universal, both The Blues Brothers and Blue Brothers 2000 for one amazing price!

The Blues Brothers (1980)

After the release of Jake Blues (John Belushi) from prison, he and brother Elwood (Dan Aykroyd) go to visit the orphanage where they were raised by nuns. They learn that the church stopped its support and will sell the place unless the tax on the property is paid within 11 days.

The brothers decide to raise the money by putting their blues band back together and staging a big gig. They may be on a "mission from God" but they're making enemies everywhere they go. Featuring performances by some of blues finest, James Brown, Cab Calloway, Ray Charles, Aretha Franklin and co-starring John Candy, Carrie Fisher, Henry Gibson and Steve Lawrence.

The Blues Brothers 2000 (1998)

Eighteen years after the Brothers' original "Mission from God", Elwood Blues (Dan Aykroyd) is getting out of prison and discovering that much has changed in the time he's been away. His partner Jake is gone, his band is no longer together and the orphanage where he grew up has been demolished. Elwood soon realizes that he must embark on a whole new mission - to reassemble the old band, this time with the help of a soulful bartender (John Goodman), compete at Queen Moussette's (Erykah Badu) Battle of the Bands and set a wayward orphan named Buster on the path to redemption.

In the midst of the mayhem, he's got to prove to the police that there's magic in the music... and a mysterious method behind the Blues Brothers' madness.

Special appearances by B.B. King, Aretha Franklin, James Brown, Johnny Lang, Blues Traveler, Eric Clapton and many more. It's an action-packed comedy with lots of Rhythm and Blues.
