e·h·w·Stock post message.svg To-do:

Here are some tasks awaiting attention:
  • Cleanup: Plot section
  • Copyedit: Integrate trivia
  • Expand: Add a cast list. Add soundtrack and/or musical performance details.
  • Merge: Much of the cameo appearances list duplicates the stub on the Louisiana Gator Boys. There are several performers who give performances that weren't lumped in with the Gator Boys. Possibly pare down the cameo list and have a prominent see also link to the Gator Boys?
  • Verify: References needed throughout

Introduction[edit]

I have made some changes to the introduction. It seemed inadequate, failing to clarify what the article is about, and it seemed like it was written from a point of view that anybody knows what's it about, who are the actors and that it is a sequel to the famous The Blues Brothers (film), though not specifying it at all, but rather mentioning an endless list of cameo appearances and cars and who-knows-what.

For more information about writing an introduction, read Wikipedia:Article development.

Wikify Table[edit]

I have added a Wikify template to the "Cameo Appearances" section. The table is done in HTML, and should be wikified. I'd do it myself, but I'd most likely mess up the entire article. I think wikification would be good; it should let the bullets appear as bullets rather than "*"s. -- Tuvok^Talk|Desk|Contribs  18:53, 24 October 2006 (UTC)

Zee/Zeke Blues[edit]

I have changed "Brother Zeke Blues" to "Brother Zee Blues". Every fan knows that Jim Belushi performs as Zee, the blood brother of Jake.

Copyedit/clarify[edit]

If anyone can determine what this sentence is trying to say, by all means fix it up. I'm stumped:
"At the battle of the bands they compete against B.B. King's band, which by ironic, for the writer plot started the band only after Elwood bought a police car from him in the beginning of the film."

Merge[edit]

This is to discuss the merger of The Louisiana Gator Boys stub/list into the Cameo appearances section of this article.

  • Support: As long as WP:MERGE procedures are followed, and information from the separate listing is presented correctly and concisely, I have no problem with this merger. — WiseKwai 07:11, 7 August 2007 (UTC)
  • Support but do not include any information that cannot be sourced to published sources. It's not clear that this "supergroup" has been presented as such outside of the film thus I do not think it should be described as one. Savidan 13:49, 7 August 2007 (UTC)
    • Comment: Understood. I think it is safe to describe the Gatorboys as a fictional supergroup that exists only in the universe of the film. — WiseKwai 14:38, 7 August 2007 (UTC)

The merger has been completed. — WiseKwai 10:25, 13 August 2007 (UTC)

Trivia?[edit]

A group of 13 fans (including a 3-month old child) of the original film from Melbourne, Australia, went to USA and Canada for the filming of BB2000, with the blessing of the studio and Landis. They appear as extras in the crowd at the Cynthiana state fair scenes. I want to add this info to the article, but not in a trivia section. Is it appropriate, and if so, where should it go? I've got references. Wocky (talk) 17:23, 1 January 2008 (UTC)
