Two trips to the convent is one too many.
I hope what they all got paid made it worth the bother.
Bouncy musical numbers and plenty of social concern, but the star, regrettably, is on autopilot.
The sequel suffers from a lame, saccharine premise and a fatally earnest manner.
This shoddiest of sequels should be the last act for these sorry Sisters.
This is another one of those dreary retreads about a bunch of kids with no faith in themselves, and about how an inspiring teacher coaches them into the State Finals, where they upset the snobs from the rich school.
Drags by minute by painful minute as Whoopi Goldberg and a strong supporting cast strive in vain to recapture the breezy energy of the original.
While the kids may sing a storm when at last they get down to mixing Beethoven, gospel and rap, in the good clean fun department this is monumentally weak and derivative.
A slapdash affair, with paper-thin plotting and characters more or less redeemed by some winning musical sequences.
Enough already! Nun more, please. And "cute" is not the descriptive word here.
I love these films. Very funny! Whoopi Goldberg is hilarious! A must see!
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.
