This feature-length film examines the too-short life of the once-in-a-generation talent John Belushi, who captured the hearts and funny bones of devoted audiences.

Told using previously unheard audiotapes, Belushi examines his extraordinary life in the words of his collaborators, friends and family, including Dan Aykroyd, Jim Belushi, Penny Marshall, Lorne Michaels, Carrie Fisher, Chevy Chase, Harold Ramis, Jane Curtin, Ivan Reitman and his high school sweetheart and later wife Judy Belushi.

It was a visit to the Second City theater in Chicago where Belushi discovered his true calling, and from that moment he became an unstoppable and pioneering force in the comedy world. With his insatiable drive taking him from National Lampoon’s Lemmings and Radio Hour to becoming one of the founding cast members on Saturday Night Live, Belushi kept the candle burning at both ends.

He simultaneously appeared on SNL each Saturday night while filming Animal House and forming a band, the Blues Brothers. The result: By age 30, Belushi was on the No. 1 television show, had the No. 1 comedy in movie history and the No. 1 record album in the world. But as Belishi’s fame grew, so did his demons, and not even his wife Judy could save him from the drug use that would eventually take his life. This film captures the complicated and singular essence of a beloved American icon who changed culture and comedy forever.

Belushi died in 1982 at the age of 33. His brother Jim recently premiered a TV show about his cannabis farm and said in an interview that medical marijuana could have possibly saved his brother.

“I believe what Dan Aykroyd says, ‘If John was a pothead he would be alive today. And we think the drug could have really helped him with this CTE, this suffering. This is one of my goals [with this new Discovery Channel show],” said Jim Belushi.
