    Synopsis


    Sister Act
    A sleeper hit that received a lukewarm reception from critics but was a success with audiences, Sister Act (1992) was star Whoopi Golberg's first bona fide smash after her Oscar victory for Ghost (1990). Goldberg stars as Deloris Van Cartier, a Reno lounge singer who accidentally witnesses a brutal murder carried out by her gangster boyfriend Vince (Harvey Keitel). Under the protection of a detective (Bill Nunn) who's trying to bring down Vince's criminal operation, Deloris is placed in protective custody at a San Francisco convent. Masquerading as a nun renamed Sister Mary Clarence, Deloris shakes up the established order of the sisters' lives, particularly enlivening their choral efforts. Although running constantly afoul of the Mother Superior (Maggie Smith), the new, jazzed-up musical act becomes a huge hit in the community, even drawing the attention of the Pope, but also alerting Vince to Deloris' whereabouts. Although credited to the pseudonymous Joseph Howard, Sister Act was actually written by Paul Rudnick and Carrie Fisher. The film was followed by a sequel, Sister Act 2: Back in the Habit (1993). ~ Karl Williams, Rovi

    Sister Act 2: Back in the Habit
    In the sequel to the hit comedy Sister Act, Whoopie Goldberg reprises her role of Deloris Van Cartier, a Las Vegas entertainer who hid out with in a convent of nuns to avoid a nasty bunch of gangsters. In Sister Act 2: Back in the Habit, Deloris is persuaded to return to the convent by the Mother Superior (Maggie Smith), because her help is needed in teaching their choral students at St. Francis High in San Francisco. However, St. Francis is in a crisis, since the administrator running the school (James Coburn) is threatening to shut the place down. If the gospel choir wins first place in a singing contest in Los Angeles, St. Francis will be saved from the priest's plans. Though the plot is rather thin and derivative, Sister Act 2 is lighthearted fun, thanks to good musical numbers and winning performances from the cast. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine, Rovi

      The 1993 classic Sister Act. The hit of 1993 that surprised everybody nobody really thought it was going to be a hit but it turned out to be the biggest hit of the summer of 1993 coming out of nowhere surprising everybody. Whoopie Goldberg.. was well known for movies like ghost but Sister Act just propelled her to a different height. Great music nice Supporting Cast of different people which helped will be seal this movie as a classic. Plus you get Sister Act 2 which was not quite as good as the original Sister Act but it also propelled another person into theme Lauryn Hill. This gave people their first view of Lauryn Hill and how good her voice was back then she still sings on occasion but this is when you got to see her real tone for music. Sister Act 2 Step It Up with the music but this time instead of the nuns you have kids and you see some real talent for singing in Sister Act 2. They're both well worth having for anyone who loves a good movie.

      I had a $5 Rewards Certificate to use and happened upon this set of DVD/Blu Ray of two of my favorite films. I have a Blu Ray player and a new 4K TV (recently purchased from Best buy) so by adding a bit more to the coupon price, I got this - to replace the two VHS tapes I had of these two movies. The picture and sound are GREAT and you really see detail and colors (esp of Reno/Las Vegas strips). My only complaint would be that the two videos in the Bonus Features section of the Blu Ray do not display properly. What little you see is just a small fragment of the pic, even though the audio plays fine. Perhaps this individual Blu Ray disc is defective, but the movies are fine, so I will keep it. It's a funny movie - and one IMHO, should be in every collection.

      I always loved the first movie. The second one never got me quite so much, but I did like the first concert. While I hadn't had the opportunity to test the disc on any other player just yet, I've never had issue with any other DVD or BluRay in the player I used. The menu loads fine, select and play whatever without issue, but when taking the disc out the player locks up and needs to be powered down and back up before it acknowledges anything. Locking up occurs whether hitting STOP or simply EJECT.

      Both these movies are great, very entertaining with a message. Last year was the 25th anniversary and I wanted to have them. Whoop's always good in whatever she's ever done. Other actors were good as well.

      This DVD set is great. You get 2 DVDs and Blu-ray. So you are pretty much getting 4 movies for the price of one.
