The Blues Brothers is a 1980 comedy directed by John Landis. Jake Blues (John Belushi) has recently been released from prison, having been convicted on a count of armed robbery. His brother Elwood (Dan Aykroyd) picks John up, and the two decide to go down memory lane to visit the orphanage where they grew up. To their distress, the two brothers learn that the orphanage is about to go out of business, with only 11 days left to earn enough property tax. Elwood and Jake decide that they will do a good deed by saving their old childhood home. Their plan is to get their old blues band back together and play enough gigs to save the orphanage. Unfortunately, despite their best intentions, the brothers have a knack for trouble and very few social graces. The two manage to cobble together their blues band, but with enemies such as a mysterious would-be murderer (Carrie Fischer) and a whole flock of policemen on their tail, the Blues Brothers might be unable to save the day for the orphanage or for themselves.
