If viewed at this late date, it provides mostly nostalgia for the pairing of the lovable soulmates.

It goes without saying that Blues Brothers 2000 doesn't carry the original's significance and R-rated personality, yet select treats remain, while the soundtrack wails triumphantly.

The sequel offers more of the same, only less.

Endless scenes of pointless buffoonery and crashing cars.

There must be a niche audience for this travesty -- probably among teenagers whose hearing and mental faculties are impaired.

This isn't a sequel, it's a remake.

Another time, another planet.

Buy the soundtrack and rent the one with Belushi.

Easily one of the most worthless, shameless, and unnecessary sequels ever concocted. Not even the music can save it.
| Original Score: 1/5

Landis apparently lost almost any trace of inspiration or creativity.

The greatest car crash ever, but not a funny movie.

Not bad. Too bad it's not good, either.

Virtually worthless without the music. But the music's so good, it doesn't matter.

Like the original, it's a rambling wreck of a movie that's more fun than it deserves to be.

Once upon a time, it was funny.

Blues Brothers 2000 is a modern shocker: a musical-comedy that actually works.
Frederic and Mary Ann Brussat

A ragtag comedy that makes it clear that God works in mysterious ways.

Once the new sequel gets past its cumbersome plotting and gets down to its music, it overrides the temptation to suggest buying the soundtrack recording and forgetting the rest.

Blues Brothers 2000 isn't anywhere close to the landmark its predecessor was, but it's still enjoyable.

'I always thought there was another story to be told,' Landis says in the film's notes. Fine; then tell one.
