Storyline

Elwood, the now lone "Blues Brother" finally released from prison, is once again enlisted by Sister Mary Stigmata in her latest crusade to raise funds for a children's hospital. Once again hitting the road to re-unite the band and win the big prize at the New Orleans Battle of the Bands, Elwood is pursued cross-country by the cops, led by Cabel the Curtis' son (and Elwood's step-brother), the Russian Mafia, and a militia group. On his new "mission from God" Elwood enlists the help of a young orphan, and a strip club bartender. Written by Stephen Scaia <s_scaia@emerson.edu>

Trivia

The list of names that Elwood (Dan Aykroyd) gives as a reason to not quit ends with Robert K. Weiss, the studio executive who convinced Aykroyd and Landis not to quit the film. See more »

Goofs

During the scene where Elwood spins his car into the parking spot in front of Willie's, the space between the cars to the front and rear are smaller after Elwood leaves the car. Yet during the scene where the car is spinning into place, the gaps between the cars is much greater. See more »

Quotes

Elwood Blues: [addressing the rest if the band] You may go if you wish. But remember this: walk away now and you walk away from your crafts, your skills, your vocations; leaving the next generation with nothing but recycled, digitally-sampled techno-grooves, quasi-synth rhythms, pseudo-songs of violence-laden gangsta-rap, acid pop, and simpering, saccharine, soulless slush. Depart now and you forever separate yourselves from the vital American legacies of Robert Johnson, Muddy Waters, Willie Dixon, Jimmy Reed...

Crazy Credits

After "Please, Please, Please" there is an advertisement for Universal Studios Florida. Under the logo reads "Ride the Movies" which fades out to read "(Ask for Babs)" as in The Blues Brothers (1980) and Landis's Animal House. See more »

4 October 1999 | by (Oakland,California) – See all my reviews

Who cares about the plot? There wasn't one. The best thing about this movie is the top notch music and performers. Having all those folks in one film is incredible. A hundred years from now, this film would be a great case study of the R & B, Soul, and Blues of this time. And this tease.stay after the final credits, and you will be greatly rewarded. For this type of film I wish there was 2 scoring systems, one for the plot and the other for the music.
