Movie Reviews

Love It, Hate It, It's Still The Blues.....Brothers!
Richard R. Carlton | Ada, MI United States | 09/04/2002
(4 out of 5 stars)

"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'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'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!"
As a Blues Brothes Fan...I'm [Peeved]!!!!! This Movie STINKS

"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 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."

"a very bad film is the best way to sum up this mess.nothing works at all.what seemed cool 20 years back is at best a Spoof.the music is so-so at best.skip it."
A very guilty pleasure

"Boy, it took guts to not submit this review anonymously, though I feel less ashamed of myself for liking it after seeing other reviews here. Well, it's not the original-nothing is, and no-one can replace Belushi. (you can't help thinking of that joke while watching this, the one that goes 'what's blue and sings alone? Dan Ackroyd') Thank GOD they used John Goodman instead of Belushi's brother. I didn't like the scene where they all turned into zombies, that was embarrassing--and what the heck did it have to do with the plot? Speaking of the plot, it was pretty much non-existent, mainly an excuse to rehash scenes from the original. But as for the good stuff...Ackroyd did as good of a job as he could. He obviously took off weight for the role, though he is far from the slim, fast-dancing, sexy Elwood he used to be. His dancing has slowed down, but is still solid. He's actually still pretty charming in parts. The kid didn't annoy me anywhere as near as much as I thought he would (mostly because he didn't have many lines) and could really dance, though I winced when he sang. The scene I replayed over and over, that I will probably buy the movie just to own, was when they did "Ghost Riders in the Sky" and there are these killer visuals of storm clouds and then the actual ghost riders themselves--I practically levitated, that part looked so damn cool. Of course, the best thing by far was the sound-track. "John the Revelator" gave me goose bumps. "Lovelight" and even the corny "Lookin for a Fox" caused me to go out and buy the sound-track almost immediately, though I couldn't meet the clerk's eye when I bought it, I was so embarrassed. I love listening to that tape! Worth seeing just for the music-fast forward through everything else if you have to, and stick around after the credits for a treat."
