Sister Act

(1992)

No booze! No sex! No drugs!... No way!

Whoopi Goldberg is a Reno singer who - after witnessing a mob murder - is stashed in protective custody in a San Francisco nunnery. There, masquerading as a lady of the cloth named Sister Mary Clarence, she shakes up the established order of the sisters' lives, particularly by bringing some soul to the nun's chorus.

  • Ardolino, whose credits include the heartwarming "Chances Are" and the dreadful "Three Men and a Little Lady," simply doesn't seem able to direct as if he believes his material is funny. Full Review

  • Blessed with the from-on-high concept of Whoopi Goldberg bringing rock 'n' roll to a nuns' chorus, this infectious little throwaway - originally seen as a vehicle for Bette Midler - has a warm-hearted story and engaging premise. Full Review

  • A bizarre mix of actors goes some way towards bolstering this flyweight caper; but the last third degenerates into farce, with nuns and thugs playing cat-and-mouse in a Reno casino. A one-note movie. Full Review
