Sister Act is childish, naive and definitely clichéd, but also quite charming and a lot of fun. It can be quite funny at times so it succeeds as a memorable comedy. The musical performances are also very entertaining and Whoopi Goldberg is just so fantastic here - hugely charismatic and hilarious. The movie is a product of its time, but a sweet one nevertheless.

Simply one of the best musical comedies of the 90s.

Love this movie!!! So much comedy, so many quotable lines, so much fun! Whoopi is spot on. What a classic! "When my sister's in trouble I will always help her out"!

Even if it takes a while to get to the good parts, Whoopi Goldberg's performance and the catchy musical numbers make Sister Act impossible to resist.

Lounge singer witnesses a murder by her ex gangster boyfriend and enters protective custody and is placed at a covenant disguised as a nun. It's their she becomes in charge of the choir and of course she changes the lives of others. This is a comedy that would normally rely on cliches but much like the directors previous movies (Dirty Dancing, which relied on cliches from 80s dance flicks) he's able to balance the cliche with fresh material. It's not reinventing the wheel but it's not copying its formula either. Whoopi brings a breath of fresh air to the movie.

O roteiro de Joseph Howard é baseado em uma idéia promissora: Whoopi Goldberg interpreta Deloris Van Cartier uma cantora de salão cujo amante Vince LaRocca ( Harvey Keitel ) é um chefe de casino, quando ela acidentalmente testemunha um assassinato, LaRocca ordena sua execução, Deloris escapa da morte e consegue proteção policial, o serviço de proteção a testemunha interna Deloris em um convento de freiras católicas. Apesar de não ser bem vista pela madre superiora ( Maggie Smith ) a nova "freira", conquista as outras irmãs, e em pouco tempo ela é a líder do coral. A direção de Emile Ardolino parece esta no piloto automático, mas pelo menos Goldberg e suas colegas especialmente Kathy Najimy como a Irmã Mary Patrick são capazes de criar vida e dar volume ao humor quando a câmera está sobre elas. Apesar do roteiro promissor o filme se desenrola e uma comedia infantilizada com pouco frescor nas piadas.

A great film from start to finish

Despite the complicating action being re-used towards a religious development with Goldberg's favorable, comedic, musically-talented-self of turning the traditions and culture of a religious cult around, even showing some imbalanced mix to the plot that was given a comedic pay-off, this "Act" is a nicely-formed comedy as Goldberg knows how to give a good time. (B)

(Full review coming soon)

Sister Act was alright. I enjoyed all the actors' performances. Maggie Smith is perfect casting of Mother Superior.

Excellent comedy with a great cast! This is the closest thing you'll get me to see that involves religion! Love the songs, the storyline, and the actors and actresses! Kathy Najimy, Whoopi Goldberg, Maggie Smith...the list goes on and on! LOVE IT! Now that I think about it, I think I need to pick up the soundtrack for this movie someday.
