When lively lounge singer Deloris Van Cartier (Whoopi Goldberg) sees her mobster beau, Vince LaRocca (Harvey Keitel), commit murder, she is relocated for her protection. Set up in the guise of a nun in a California convent, Deloris proceeds to upend the quiet lives of the resident sisters. In an effort to keep her out of trouble, they assign Deloris to the convent's choir, an ensemble that she soon turns into a vibrant and soulful act that gains widespread attention.

Audience Reviews for Sister Act

    Sister Act was a funny film, but is clouded with cliches and such a simple plot that it just felt weaker compared to other great comedies. I was very excited to see this film, I was hoping it would be a laugh riot and I would really love it, and although it is funny, it doesn't live up to my expectations. There are many jokes about Catholicism and being a nun, and although its funny for the most part, it felt like a film I have seen a million times (I felt like I was watching Kindergarden Cop all over again, but instead with Whoopi Goldberg as a witness instead of a cop. Whoopi Goldberg was the star attraction, I mean she was perfect for the character they gave this film, but i found her character very annoying at the start of the film but she slowly grows more likable throughout the film. Sadly her character will be the only memorable one as she is the only interesting actress in the film, they really didn't even give Maggie Smith much to work with. So it overall was just a fun movie with some good laughs, but it fails to bring anything new in terms of story or characters.

    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.

    LOL funny and cute. I remember this being huge when I was a kid (4 when it came out) finally glad to see it though! Funny how they never actually said "witness protection". LOVE Maggie Smith.
