The Blues Brothers (Dir. John Landis, 1980): They'll never get caught. They're on a mission from God.

After the release of Jake Blues (John Belushi) from prison, he and brother Elwood (Dan Aykroyd) go to visit the orphanage where they were raised by nuns. They learn that the church stopped its support and will sell the place unless the tax on the property is paid within 11 days.

The brothers decide to raise the money by putting their blues band back together and staging a big gig. They may be on a "mission from God" but they're making enemies everywhere they go. Featuring performances by some of blues finest, James Brown, Cab Calloway, Ray Charles, Aretha Franklin and co-starring John Candy, Carrie Fisher, Henry Gibson and Steve Lawrence.

The Blues Brothers 2000 (Dir. John Landis, 1998): Eighteen years after the brothers' original "mission from God", Elwood Blues is getting out of prison and discovering that much has changed in the time he's been away. His partner Jake is gone, his band is no longer together and the orphanage where he grew up has been demolished. Elwood soon realizes that he must embark on a whole new mission to reassemble the old band, this time with the help of a soulful bartender (John Goodman), and compete at Queen Moussette's Battle of the Bands while setting a wayward orphan named Buster on the path to redemption.

The only problem with this deal is that it comes with Blues Brothers 2000. Do yourself, and the iconic status of the original movie, a favour - never, ever watch that movie!!

You could still buy this throw the "other" film away and have a great 2DVD set

How right you are. I had the misfortune to see it last week on TV, for the first time. OMG what on earth were they trying to do, if it ain't broke don't fix it. The original is a true classic and a must in anybodys film collection.

The 2nd film is much more about the music and getting blues legends on film before they all pass away. It is still a very good film but like I said about the music.

Placed an order but now saying out of stock,ill keep the order live in the hope they get more in!

Heat and Rep added.

Still one of favourite films, introduced me to some real music legends as a kid like Ray Charles, Aretha Franklin, John Lee Hooker as well as the band members themselves. Blues Brothers 2000 is just terrible, but as already said the music numbers are worth watching just to see how many stars they managed to cram in.

I've got the R1 extended edition which I bought years ago, and the making of documentary is also good if you're a fan of the movie.

Blues Brothers is my favourite movie of all time, the sequel almost made me lose faith in humanity.

Now you tell me! If only I'd have known years ago, I could have saved the rental cost and a couple of hours I'll never have again. John Landis was prosecuted years ago for an accident in a fllm he was directing, when 3 actors were killed. Unfortunately he got off, if he had been convicted we might all have been spared this abomination. A few years in jail seems to me to be a just punishment for the crime of Blues Brothers 2000.
