There are only a handful of worthy SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE movies, and chief on that list is John Landis' musical masterpiece THE BLUES BROTHERS.

A free-wheeling, drug-fueled smash-'em-up of music, comedy and action, THE BLUES BROTHERS is a movie that spits at boundaries and labels. It refuses to be caged, and smashes through expectations with every scene change. John Belushi and Dan Akroyd star as Jake and Elwood Blues, two brothers on a "mission from God" to save their old Catholic orphanage the only way they know how: by putting their old band back together performing a charity gig. Along the way, they dodge lawmen of every kind, neo-Nazis, and crazy ex-girlfriends.

Featuring performances by James Brown, Aretha Franklin and Ray Charles at their funky, late '70s best.

If you're a fan of toe-tapping, knee-slapping and tail-shaking, this is a big-screen experience you can't afford to miss.

Something else you can't afford to miss? A five-course menu, filled with culinary absurdities truly worthy of Jake and Elwood Blues.
