“The year's best film to date; one of the all-time great comedies; the best movie ever made in Chicago. All are true, and, boy, is that ever a surprise.” - Gene Siskel, Chicago Tribune

In this distinctly Chicago, distinctly 80s classic, Jake (John Belushi) is released from prison and reunites with his brother, Elwood (Dan Aykroyd) and endeavours to get the band back together and raise money for the orphanage where they grew up.
