The Blues Brothers
1980
 
John Belushi and Dan Aykroyd lay waste to Chicago as the title characters, a pair of two-bit crooks on a quest to save the Catholic orphanage where they were raised by reuniting their former band for a charity gig. Along the way, the duo runs afoul of Illinois state troopers, a neo-Nazi leader (Henry Gibson) and a vindictive ex-girlfriend (Carrie Fisher). Musical turns by Ray Charles, Aretha Franklin and James Brown punctuate the frenetic action.

My all-time favorite movie. Every shot throughout is masterful. Every joke just subtle enough (yet just corny enough) to deliver. Great music without exception. Jaw-dropping car chase at the end. "No ma'am, we're musicians."
