Movie Info

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

Light and fluffy as it is, "Sister Act" still has plenty of laugh-out-loud moments and some warm fuzzies as well as some believable action, and that makes it a 7 out of 10 in my book. But the sequel? It's more like a 5.

Nothing like a heartwarming Disney comedy with a body count to raise spirits.

A silly, harmless star vehicle for Whoopi Goldberg--sort of nuns on the run.

Terribly unfunny musical-comedy with nails-on-blackboard performances

Why is this movie so popular? I've always wondered that. It seems like you can find it somewhere on TV at any time of the day. This movie isn't bad, it's just not that good. Goldberg just isn't that funny, and there are a lot of better movies similar to this one anyway.

A little boring in the beginning, but when Sister Mary Clarence got moved into a Covent and been assigned to handle the choir, the story gets more and more interesting for me.. Whoopi Goldberg show her best performance that she can in this movie, knowing that acting in a comedy movie was a little harder to keep your act quality on... The story was funny, and the song was a joy to behold... Love this movie!!

    1. Mother Superior: I guarantee you she is no broad! She is Sister Mary Clarence of St. Katherine's Convent. She's a model of generosity, virtue, and love! You have my word for it, gentlemen, she is a nun!
