Blues BrothersClassic 1980s film The Blues Brothers has been given the official seal of approval by the Catholic Church - the movie has been added to the Vatican's list of must-see pictures.

The music movie, starring John Belushi and Dan Aykroyd, sees the onscreen siblings embark on an odd-ball road trip to raise money for the church-run orphanage where they grew up.

And the heads of the Catholic faith have now praised the movie's spiritual undertones and recommended it as a "Catholic classic,"according to the Vatican's official newspaper L'Osservatore Romano.

The Blues Brothers joins films such as Mel Gibson's The Passion Of The Christ and It's A Wonderful Life on the Catholic Church's list of recommended movies.
