Elwood, the now lone "Blues Brother" finally released from prison, is once again enlisted by Sister Mary Stigmata in her latest crusade to raise funds for a children's hospital. Once again hitting the road to re-unite the band and win the big prize at the New Orleans Battle of the Bands, Elwood is pursued cross-country by the cops, led by Cabel the Curtis' son (and Elwood's step-brother), the Russian Mafia, and a militia group. On his new "mission from God" Elwood enlists the help of a young orphan, and a strip club bartender.Written by

Joe Morton was offered as another lead singer in the Blues Brothers, after the film was released, and the band got back together, in real-life, by Dan Aykroyd, but Joe declined the offer, because he'd rather stick to being just an acting career, and not focus on a singing career as well as an acting career.

While sifting through the rubble of the burned down night club, the police find a pile of shell casings from an assault rifle, but the Russians were firing sub-machine guns (Uzis and Mac-10s), which use pistol ammunition. See more »
After "Please, Please, Please" there is an advertisement for Universal Studios Florida. Under the logo reads "Ride the Movies" which fades out to read "(Ask for Babs)" as in The Blues Brothers (1980) and Landis's Animal House. See more »
Who cares about the plot? There wasn't one. The best thing about this movie is the top notch music and performers. Having all those folks in one film is incredible. A hundred years from now, this film would be a great case study of the R & B, Soul, and Blues of this time. And this tease.stay after the final credits, and you will be greatly rewarded. For this type of film I wish there was 2 scoring systems, one for the plot and the other for the music.
