Shuffle white cook in the kitchen whips out his saxophone and jumps on the counter This should have been an electric moment but Landis screws it up The camera isolates the components — a shot of the brothers a shot of the sax player a shot of Franklin and the singers — so that the scene is sapped of its intended full-tilt power The same sort of thing happens at a raucous church service presided over by James Brown and at a music store run by Ray Charles When Charles sits at the piano and starts in on Shake Your Tailfeather Landis cuts from the band boogieing in the store to a crowd dancing in the street but he cuts too frequently and clumsily and the outside scene feels as claustrophobic as that inside' ONE WISHES FOR the special sense of space that choreographer Twyla Tharp brought to Milos Forman’s exhilarating Hair Despite the fact that The Blues Brothers lumbers when it should hum there are scenes to savor here John Lee Hooker sings the blues on Maxwell Street A car chase through a shopping mall is colorful and kiddie-car fun though countless followup chases — this is an immensely physical film — become endurance tests in the manner of the movie 1941 Aykroyd's Elwood has a funny thing for white toast and Belushi even behind dark glasses looks funny as he did in Animal House The Blues Brothers wants to be a happy-hearted film and sometimes it is Unfortunately — and it is unfortunate one brought great expectations to this project — the movie thinks too big to be satisfying in more than small ways You walk in expecting a magic carpet ride and The Blues Brothers pulls the rug out from under you ' THE BLUES BROTHERS is rated R It contains occasional profanity Tuesday through Saturday soma activities at Flamingo Car caravans through the swamps led by a park
