Ebert further noted that 'Belushi and Aykroyd come over as hard-boiled city guys, total cynics with a world-view of sublime simplicity, and that all fits perfectly with the movie's other parts.
There's even room, in the midst of the carnage and mayhem, for a surprising amount of grace, humor, and whimsy. Janet Maslin of The New York Times criticized The Blues Brothers for shortchanging viewers on more details about Jake and Elwood's affinity for African-American culture.
