The Blues Brothers a ‘Catholic Classic'

In the Vatican's official newspaper, L'Osservatore Romano, the 1980 comedy starring Dan Aykroyd and John Belushi, The Blues Brothers, has been declared "a Catholic classic" alongside The Ten Commandments and The Passion of the Christ. L'Osservatore editor Gian Maria Vian, who doubles as its film critic, apparently, cited the film's plot, in which two brothers battle "cops, neo-Nazis and crazed country fans in a bid to save the Catholic orphanage where they were raised," as his explanation. The Vatican's official reading of the film is that, "For [the Blues brothers] this Catholic institution is their only family. And they decide to save it at any cost." Aykroyd told the New York Post: "As a former altar boy from age 6 ... but a somewhat lapsed Catholic, I was delighted with the endorsement." Official Catholic ruling on Caddyshack II is still pending. Movie poster with two of the main characters on the right-side of the image. They are both wearing black suits, hats, and sunglasses and facing forwards. The man on the right is resting his arm on the shoulder of the man on the left. A police car is present on the left side of the image behind them. At the top of the image is the tagline "They'll never get caught. They're on a mission from God." At the bottom of the poster is the title of the film, cast names, and production credits.
