The guest appearances are nothing short of legends, the comedy is brilliant, and happens to have a greater car chase than any action film.

synopsis Direct out of jail, Jake Blues and his Brother Elwood are off on a “mission from God” to raise funds for the orphanage in which they grew up. The only thing they can do is do what they do best: play music. So they get their old band together and they're on their way yet not without getting in a bit of trouble here and there.
