Have you seen the Light?

Well, apparently, the Vatican has. L'Osservatore Romano is calling The Blues Brothers a "Catholic classic" and recommending that Catholics everywhere see it--this, in honor of the 30th anniversary of the film's release.

While some say it's a silly movie with too many car chases and bad language, others insist it's ultimately about redemption. After all, the brothers (John Belushi and Dan Aykroyd)say they're "on a mission from God."

It's nice to see the Vatican getting so hip about popular culture--even if it's three decades late.
