Jake Blues is just out of jail, and teams up with his brother, Elwood on a 'mission from God' to raise funds for the orphanage in which they grew up.

I guess you could say I have been feeling blue every time this film has been brought up, since I have yet to see it and therefore find it annoying that I will have to exclude myself from the discussion.
The acting on display is wooden, specifically from Aykroyd and the film just felt like an homage to blues and blues legends more than something of its own.
Of course though, what would a movie about blues be without the music.
