I was a bit surprised at this given that the movie isn't the least bit spiritual and the over the top violence and what not. Still a great movie...but odd that The Vatican likes it.

The entire movie was about going to great extremes to give money to the church. What is not to like if you are with the Vatican?

Plus it had Kathleen Freeman as The Penguin Sister Mary Stigmata.




A Catholic school Nun beating the crap out of Jake and Elwood, what isn’t to like?

Plus The Blues Brothers gave me first knowledge of a Saint that I never heard of, yet whom I have prayed to often since seeing the movie.

Anyone remember the address Elwood gave the DMV? Jae should know it.

Why do I feel a fast car ride coming on running from cops? I feel as though it will be blessed as I try to get into the bank to make my next payment before 6:00 while I am avoiding being apprehended for soem ridiculous crime.

@ minimartin:

Yeah, the 'little children' references hit me as ironic too...


But without jokes, nice to see the Vatican is doing something like this. It shows they aren't complete world-blind and that they can value a movie like this for it's underlining motive.

I believe that picture is from the "sequel" Blues Brothers 2000. I put sequel in quotes because it wasn't really a true sequel imo...no Jake no Blues Brother RIP Mr. Belushi

This is about as odd as the Vatican 'music playlist' they released a while back, which happened to include Tupac Shakur on it. The Pope approves of the Blues Brothers and Pac? Really? It seems to defy their logic... but it's good they're trying to connect.
The truth is stranger than fiction, I guess.
