About This Quiz

In 1973, when two young, rising, comic geniuses collide and collaborate off-screen, the results are explosive. Blues Brothers is one of the most outrageous, fun, and unique comedies of all time. Dan Aykroyd and Jim Belushi star in the 1980 film, which was also written by Dan Aykroyd and John Landis.

In an article in Vanity Fair, "The idea," Aykroyd recalled, “is based on two classic recidivist American characters. It’s based on a love of the city of Chicago and the music that came out of there." In the movie, Jake and Elwood set out to redeem themselves by trying to raise $5,000 to save the orphanage they grew up in from closing. They try to do this by reuniting their band for a performance.

The high-jinks in the film were legendary. The first car chase of the film destroys the Dixie Square Mall. (This real Illinois mall was demolished in 2012.) Then, while driving, Elwood runs down a group of Nazis blocking the road. The Nazis seek revenge throughout the rest of the film. And of course, the movie contained hilarious one-liners. You'll recall this great quote from the movie, "There's 106 miles to Chicago, we've got a full tank of gas, half a pack of cigarettes, it's dark out, and we're wearing sunglasses." Ready to laugh?
