Vatican Endorses Jake and Elwood’s Mission From God
We all know the 1980 film The Blues Brothers is one of the most awesome comedies of all time. But now it’s got God’s seal of approval. Just in time for the film’s 30th anniversary, the Vatican’s official newspaper L’Osservatore Romano has dubbed The Blues Brothers a “Catholic classic.” That makes it recommended viewing for all Catholics. True, Jake and Elwood are on “a mission from God” to reunite their band and keep the orphanage they grew up in from bankruptcy, but the film isn’t dogmatic in any notable sense. With the Papal stamp of approval, however, the film joins a list of dozens more observably religious features such as The Ten Commandments, Jesus of Nazareth, It’s a Wonderful Life, Joan of Arc and Mel Gibson’s The Passion of the Christ.
