I knew I was a fan of The Blues Brothers when I was very young, but I hadn't watched it since then. Watching it again was like experiencing it for the first time all over again. I adored this, it is such a perfect blend of music, comedy, slapstick, and some serious suspension of disbelief. But it all works so well. The talent throughout this is unbelievable. I had forgotten John Candy had a small role, forgotten Carrie Fisher was the psycho ex girlfriend, had NO idea Steven Speilberg had a cameo. AND, apparently James Avery is in the crowd dancing outside Ray's Music, but aside from that I can't even speak to the musical talent that comes and goes throughout one memorable scene after another.
I'm comfortable in saying this is a near perfect film.
