    Cool The Blues Brothers Deemed A Catholic Classic By The Vatican

    The Blues Brothers Deemed A Catholic Classic By The Vatican


    Following his release from prison, Elwood Blues, in the movie The Blues Brothers, had a mission - a mission from God to be exact. Working together with his brother, they would travel across the country to get their old band back together so that they could save the Catholic home that they grew up in. Despite containing the repetitive use of the F-word, comparing nuns to penguins, taking the Lord's name in vain, and a used condom joke, apparently the Vatican considers this John Landis comedy a "Catholic Classic."

    With the film celebrating its 30th anniversary come Sunday, the Vatican newspaper L'Osservatore Romano has deemed the film recommendable to people of the faith. The film is not the first to be given this distinguished title, it certainly stands out amongst titles such as The Ten Commandments, Jesus of Nazareth, The Passion of The Christ, and It's a Wonderful Life.

    I love The Blues Brothers as much as anyone, but the film's hard-R content make this a story straight out of left field. Is saving a Catholic home all you really need to do to get in with the church? More importantly, what did they think of Blues Brothers 2000? Someone get The Pope on the line. These questions need to be answered.
