Sister Act

sister-500x375c

SISTER ACT is an obvious gimmick film, but it’s cute anyway, thanks to Whoopi Goldberg, a fine gaggle of supporting nuns, and several impressive musical numbers.  Whoopi plays a nightclub singer, on the run from her mobster boyfriend (Harvey Keitel), sent via a witness protection deal to hideout in a church, overseen by Maggie Smith.  What these nuns really lack is a choir that can,well…sing…and…

With Bill Nunn, Kathy Najimy, Mary Wickes, the 1992 crowd-pleaser was a huge hit–making $232,000,000, inspiring a sequel (more in the works) and a Broadway musical.  Fun 100 minutes if you’re in an airy mood.
