Blues Brothers 2000

Why the hate?

Arriving 18 years after the original, and 16 years after the death of John Belushi, this sequel was dumped on from all sides.

I just don’t get the bile.

Not saying it’s the equal of the first film — few follow-ups this side of The Empire Strikes Back are — but everything is in place for a good time.

It’s funny, there are a ton of songs, and having the peerless John Goodman slap on the shades and ride along with Dan Aykroyd is a master move.

So maybe pull the stick out of your rump and get over yourself, haters.
