Movies I Love // Blues Brothers // 1980
Why I love It: One of the few successful SNL skit to movie, Blues Brothers is one of the funniest comedies I have ever seen. I saw it when I was about seven years old. I had a huge crush on John Belushi and Dan Akroyd. The plot is pretty simple, Jake and Elwood Blues must put their band back together and raise enough money to save a boarding school. Now, if this were any movie, this would be some meleodramatic bullshit with a couple songs thrown in. What we get instead is a hilarious action comedy with some of the most ridiculous car chases in the world. It goes over the top and enjoys every minute of it. The best scene, hands down in the chase scene in the mall.
