The Blues Brothers
Video

Revealing mistake: When Elwood drives the Blues Mobile backwards from the half-finished bridge, just as it flips you see something on the underside of the car on the far right. It's either a coiled spring or a tube with an explosive charge used to flip the car over. (02:10:50)

Continuity mistake: At the end of the church scene, James Brown is shown placing the microphone back on its stand. Then it cuts to a wide shot of James pacing the stage, mic in hand. (00:23:50)

Question: Did John Belushi do all the dancing, especially the turnovers in church, by himself or was it a double?

Answer: It was a double, and the "making of" documentary on the DVD shows this.

David Mercier

To be fair, John did do a lot of flips and dancing as Jake; just not all of them in the movie
