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

When the Blues Brothers are playing "Ghost Riders In the Sky" at the bluegrass festival, we can hear Elwood say "Duck, give me a mountain tempo in A minor." In The Blues Brothers (1980), when they need to play country music, and decide on "Theme from Rawhide", someone in the band asks "What key?", and Duck Dunn answers: "A. Good country key, A."

When the sniper is lining up his shot at the truck rally show, the front cap on his scope appears closed. However, this is a night vision scope that has a protective cover that allows only the right amount of light in as to not ruin the light sensor inside the scope. See more »
[while the Russian's are at the burial sight of a loved one, Elwood is trying to get Mr. Fabulous, who has now become a funeral director, to rejoin the band]

[Russians at the funeral begin to talk amongst themselves in Russian]
And what about the deal with the medical college for his dick!
[the Russians begin to yell, get out their weapons, and shoot at them]
... We're dead now.

The 1080p HD/Blu-ray version plasters the original 1997 Universal logo with a remastered version with the website underneath the globe. It also removes the Universal Studios Hollywood & Florida promo with the "Ask for Babs" gag. See more »
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.
