Two trips to the convent is one too many.

I hope what they all got paid made it worth the bother.

Chicago Reader
Top Critic

Bouncy musical numbers and plenty of social concern, but the star, regrettably, is on autopilot.

Time Out
Top Critic

The sequel suffers from a lame, saccharine premise and a fatally earnest manner.

Shamelessly contrived pap.

This shoddiest of sequels should be the last act for these sorry Sisters.

Not as good as the first one, whether it's from the story or the song selection.. I really thought they were pushed to make this movie just because the first one was a big hit.. Even though all the cast come back again, like Whoopi Goldberg, Maggie Smith, Kathy Najimy, and Wendy Makkena, but the story which is too ordinary, too cliche, and too predictable made the movie wasn't as good as the first one because basically they just want to repeat the first movie's success.. Even though they made the movie a lot lot younger by adding some potential young actors, but basically it's no use.. Overall, I can't say this one is a good one, especially when you should compare it to the first movie, but it's still an enjoyable and entertaining movie..

I remember seeing this in the theater as a child, and, while I kind of liked it back then, i knew it wasn't as good as the first. Only now that I'm older do I realize that there's not much of a reason for this film to exist, and that it falls prey to all of the tired old cliches anyway. The performances aren't terrible though, and the music is at least good, but really, this either should have been different all together, or existed not at all. Why does Whoopi HAVE to don the habit here anyway? She could have easily gotten the job done without it.
