Revealing mistake: Just after they dump the tacks out of the window, the Russians' car flies up into the air in a really quite impressive car crash. Just before it flips over though, you can see the huge ramp put in front of it. (00:32:20)

Factual error: When Cable calls his mother in Phoenix from his desk in Chicago, he only dials seven digits, as if making a local call.

Revealing mistake: In the big impressive car crash, it is quite clear that most of the cars are empty.

1

Audio problem: When the Blues Brothers are beginning their song Turn on Your Love Light for the battle of the bands, a horn is heard as an indicator for each singer to turn around, but none of the 3 horn players are actually playing their instrument.

2

Continuity mistake: When Elwood, Mac, and Buster arrive at the Monster Truck show to sing. We see Mac get out of the car. If you look carefully in the background you can see Elwood already going up to the stage. Then the camera switched to show Elwood getting out of the car.

Factual error: At the Russian funeral, the priest mentions the deceased's name as Nicholas Tsusefskaya, and describes him as a young man. The surname, however, is female. (The correct male equivalent would be Tsusefsky.).

Continuity mistake: During the escape from the "bluegrass" gig, Dan Aykroyd pulls out a remote control, fires up the car, and slowly turns the wheel to the left. We then see the car pulling out and slowly turning right. (01:07:50)

Revealing mistake: In the scene at the tent revival, as Cab is ascending through the tent ceiling, a clear plastic sheet can easily be seen.

Continuity mistake: Near the end, as Paul Shaffer judges the Battle of the Bands, the red stage curtain is closed and the stage is empty. We know that the Blues Brothers were the last performers, and they carried their microphone stands with them as they retreated behind the curtain; so, all sound gear and both bands are behind the curtain, and the stage is empty in front of the curtain except for Paul Shaffer. As Shaffer announces the winner, he ducks to his right and goes center-stage, where the curtain is instantly wide open again with band members and sound gear filling the stage all the way to the edge, which would be physically impossible to accomplish in the split-second camera cut.

Elwood Blues: Duck, give me a mountain tempo in A minor.

Trivia: The police car they use is marked as "K-9 - canine patrol". John Belushi's brother James was in a movie called K-9. He was meant to appear in this, but couldn't due to other commitments.

Question: What does Buster mean that he'll be put in a foster home with people who don't love him? What's gonna happen to him if he lives with them?

Trainman

Answer: Foster homes are meant to be temporary. While, hopefully, foster parents will be kind and caring to the children in their charge, they cannot form overly strong attachments that would only cause emotional trauma for a child when they transition to another living situation.

Answer: He was just saying it pessimistically. Although, depending on which reports you read, 1 in 3 children are abused by their foster parents. In addition, many children in the system also get placed into several different homes during their childhood (since fostering children is not the same as adopting them), leaving the children to feel unloved by their foster parents.

Bishop73

I don't know the frequency with which it actually happens, but there are also neglectful foster parents whose sole motivation is the monthly stipend from the state, rather than a genuine interest in their wards' well-being.
