    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

      These movies are awesome! Whoopi is great, and these movies have lots of other great cast members, such a Lauren Hill. The music in these movies is great, especially if you love oldies. Even though these movies (especially the sequel) examine real-life issues (I recently used SA2 as an example for leadership in a school project), they are very light-hearted and funny. Overall...these are just feel-good movies, and I definitely recommend them for anyone!

      Whoopi did great back then when this movie came up and still makes me want to watch it again and again when I need some fun and want to feel happy with all those adventures and songs, and the whole set of characters and their interactions on the storyline . Same goes with the second one,- not as many surprising elements and conclusions but never the less a fun watch.

      Whoop Goldberg is fantastic as a "nun" hiding out in a convent. Add singing, and some action, and you will laugh and cry through both movies.

      Classic film from the 90's. With a phenomenally talented cast and an incredibly catchy soundtrack, Sister Act is a great film for any gospel fans.
