Blues Brothers praised by Catholic Church

The music movie, starring John Belushi and Dan Aykroyd, sees the onscreen siblings embark on an odd-ball road trip to raise money for the church-run orphanage where they grew up.

And the heads of the Catholic faith have now praised the movie’s spiritual undertones and recommended it as a “Catholic classic”, according to the Vatican’s official newspaper L’Osservatore Romano.

The Blues Brothers joins films such as Mel Gibson’s The Passion Of The Christ and It’s A Wonderful Life on the Catholic Church’s list of recommended movies.
