I'd have gotten laughs out of them if the movie was actually funny.Seriously - if you can't get a laugh out of The Blues Brothers your soul is dry and dead as my ex-wife's heart.
I liked that as well. It's ironic that Mr. Hooker made his fame in Detroit and not Chicago. I was infected by John Lee Hooker in '72 when I was 12 or 13 years old. I met him in the late 70's before a show. What a great voice and groove.My dad took me to see the movie which I loved. Especially John Lee Hooker playing out on the street. When I movie was over we walked right into a record store and bought two John Lee Hooker albums.
Changed my life. No joke.
Some of my favorite musicians and car chases. I loved it.I really don't get all of the comments from "serious blues musicians" to quote another great movie "lighten up Francis". It's a very silly movie with great quotes and shtick. John lee Hooker, Ray Charles, Aretha Franklin, Cab Calloway, tons of real blues as background music, iconic chase scenes.
It's a cult classic at the very least.
This x 1000. Jeez Louise - some people on here make me despair for humanityJust no pleasing some people. Dis'ing the Blues Brothers movie?! Pathetic and sad. I swear some of you guys wouldn't know fun if it wrapped itself around your waist and started to wiggle. Carry on I guess...maybe try to find some grammatical errors or something else to complain about.
