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.

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.

Blues Brothers 2000 is a modern shocker: a musical-comedy that actually works.

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.

It's clear everyone on screen had a ball making this film -- and it rubs off on the audience.

The pacing is good, no scene is so long that it bogs down, and there are enough musical interruptions to keep things humming along.

Everything bar the musical numbers is stolen from the original film, and comes across as desperately lackluster...

If one gag doesn't do it for you, surely the next one will.

While the comedic scenes are hopelessly inept, Landis again shows a deft hand with the staging of the musical numbers, which should provide fans with a good enough reason to see the movie.

It's a pity the film doesn't respect the art of acting as much as that of music.
