*** It's so awesome it summons undead cowboys on giant [[HellishHorse Hellish Horses]] chasing skeletal cattle across the sky! it's quite possibly the most awesome scene ever put on film!

** Elwood's "Who you gonna call, Jake?" at the phone booth is put in entirely new perspective when you consider Aykroyd's [[Film/{{Ghostbusters 1984}} other well known work]].

** The brothers' agent tells them that {{blues}} is a DeadHorseGenre, and they should switch their act to {{disco}}. Thirty years after the film's release, blues music is still going strong, while disco was the TropeNamer for DeaderThanDisco within a year.

** The original is basically a series of One Scen Wonders: Frank Oz as the prison guard, Kathleen Freeman as the Penguin, James Brown as the Preacher, Aretha Franklin as the diner owner, Ray Charles as the owner of Ray's. There are other memorable characters as well.....

* {{Sequelitis}}: ''Blues Brothers 2000'' is generally considered inferior to the original, mostly because (as described above), John Belushi's shoes were hard to fill.

* VindicatedByVideo: ''2000'' bombed at the box office, but did better when it went to the home market.

* ReplacementScrappy: Subverted and played straight in ''Blues Brothers 2000''. Three new Blues Brothers join Elwood, and none of them is a sufficient replacement for Belushi... but their singing is pretty damn good.

** There was also, believe it or not, a ''Blues Brothers 2000'' game for the Nintendo 64. It was released in the actual year 2000, right at the tail end of the 64's life cycle and two whole years after the film's disastrous box office run. The handful of people who actually bought this game got nothing but a run-of-the-mill 3D platformer with Elwood running around Chicago, and the final boss was just one long rhythm mini-game. Not only a bad game, but a bafflingly pointless one.

** "Are you the police?" "No, ma'am, we're musicians." Guess [[Music/ThePolice which band]] was just beginning to become internationally famous at the time when the movie was released?

Also funnier since Aykroyd's deadpan delivery of "ma'am" so perfectly foreshadows his later turn as [[Film/{{Dragnet}} Jack Webb]] a few years later.

** The [[http://www.postergiant.com/mi250.jpg Briefcase Full of Blues poster]] that included the {{Badass}} quote "It's 106 Miles to Chicago..." For a period in TheEighties it was one of the most popular to decorate college dorm walls.

* FridgeBrilliance: The brothers really are on a MissionFromGod; the Bluesmobile performs impossible stunts right up to the exact moment it's no longer needed, whereupon it literally falls to pieces, and nobody appears to get so much as scratched, even in massive multi-car pileups or inside a collapsing building.
