Change of Habit Reviews
That said, Elvis looks gorgeous in this movie and with Mary Tyler Moore they have taken over the world. Too bad the movie falls flat.
The songs are great but Have a Happy seems out of place.
The one thing I don't like about this movie is the Autism aspect of it..It seems very out of date and the scene with Elvis/Mary and the kid is very uncomfertable to watch.
Well worth a watch even if you're not an Elvis fan.
Love the Dr. John Carpenter line "....this place can slow you down, don't you think?" To MTM in the convent.
Mary Tyler Moore is perky as ever as the most hopeful sister. There's also the political sister and the social equality sister. We get into battles with drugs, autism and an outdated church set under a tone of poor violence in an overcrowded slum.
It's rated G by the MPAA, no shit. Though it starts out with nun's stripping and applying nylon stockings. The drug references, the violence against women, the words "faggot", "bitch" and "ni&&er". And oh yeah, the attempted nun rape.
So grab the kids for a little religious fun!
