Further proof that Dan Aykroyd is nothing but an unfunny sellout. This film is a disgrace. If you're a fan of the original you know exactly what I mean. John Goodman's character is a cheap attempt to replace Belushi that is a total mockery. Boring pretensious bs.

Love It, Hate It, It's Still The Blues.....Brothers!

"Love it or hate it, it doesn't matter, this is still a great blues film. Sure this sequel has a silly plot, but so was the original....it's a joke, get it? I found myself laughing repeatedly as the plot continued to satirize the entire concept of a sequel.....if it was too subtle for you, watch it again....it's right there, brazen as can be.But who on earth would watch this film for the plot? True to the original, 2000 is a great blues MUSIC sequel. You've got to admire the script writing that has Elwood earnestly trying to convince his band they can compete in a battle of the bands against Clapton backing B.B. with Clarence on sax, or Aretha actually delivering a better take on Respect than on the original film, or John Goodman doing James Browns' cape.....this is great stuff.....and what really matters is that the musicians are having a ball.....and it comes through loud and clear, with soul to spare.Buy this one for the music, the charisma that jumps off the screen and realize that Belushi would have loved it no matter what.....after all, it still celebrates the blues!"

"After waiting a good portion of my life to see the long awaited sequal, My heart sank to my feet at the cheesy plot, stupid jokes, and the fact that as an Illinoisan, you could easily tell that they were not in Chicago. I took the video out and threw it against the wall shortly after seeing the rediculous bluesmobile turned submarine scene. John Belushi, John Candy and Cab Calloway deserved much better. Some say the music was great...as a musician, the music in this movie doesn't compare to the quality blues of the first movie- WAY over produced. DO NOT BUY THIS [BAD] USELESS EXCUSE FOR A FILM."
