Corrected entry: At their performance 106 miles north of Chicago, the brothers acknowledge the presence of Illinois law enforcement officers. At 106 miles north of Chicago, the place would be well into Wisconsin.

Correction: Yes, but seeing how eager the police authorities are in capturing the Blues Brothers (approving the use of unnecessary violence, for instance), they would not likely be very concerned about jurisdiction issues either.


Corrected entry: Carrie Fisher shoots 5 rockets from a 4-barrelled rocket launcher. (00:33:30)

Correction: There is a fifth barrel in the center of the launcher.

Continuity mistake: In the scene where they go to Elwood's apartment, Elwood puts on a 78 RPM Decca Louis Jordan record. The record is entitled "Saturday Night Fish Fry". But the song that plays is "Let The Good Times Roll".

Trivia: This movie set a long-standing Guinness World Record for the largest number of automobiles ever destroyed in a movie: 60 refurbished and reinforced police cars were wrecked (most beyond repair) in the various chase scenes. This record held until the belated sequel, "Blues Brothers 2000," (1998) deliberately set the new record by wrecking one additional automobile for a total of 61.
