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

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

Belushi is rolling in his grave, can't you feel it?

It makes an audience pay for every two seconds of pleasure with 10 seconds of pain.

Landis apparently lost almost any trace of inspiration or creativity.

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

If simply copying the original Blues Brothers wasn't bad enough, writers Aykroyd and John Landis dumb it down, removing any memorable characters, and replacing them with flashy, but unbelievable, magical gimmicks.

Joins the collection of unfunny Saturday Night Live alumnus and never-should-have-been-made sequels.

It would take divine intervention to breathe freshness into Blues Brothers 2000.

Once upon a time, it was funny.

The main problem is the absence of a similar focus on the music, replaced by a more cynical attempt to re-create the past.
