Movie Info

In the sequel to the hit comedy Sister Act, Whoopie Goldberg reprises her role of Deloris Van Cartier, a Las Vegas entertainer who hid out with in a convent of nuns to avoid a nasty bunch of gangsters. In Sister Act 2: Back in the Habit, Deloris is persuaded to return to the convent by the Mother Superior (Maggie Smith), because her help is needed in teaching their choral students at St. Francis High in San Francisco. However, St. Francis is in a crisis, since the administrator running the school (James Coburn) is threatening to shut the place down. If the gospel choir wins first place in a singing contest in Los Angeles, St. Francis will be saved from the priest's plans. Though the plot is rather thin and derivative, Sister Act 2 is lighthearted fun, thanks to good musical numbers and winning performances from the cast.

    Sister Act 2 wasn't as charming as the first, but if you're bored and you have nothing else to do this film will do just fine. Whoopi Goldberg dons the habit again to save her old school from closure by teaching music. It gave us a taste of an up-coming beautiful, and gifted young lady named Lauryn Hill. Seeing and hearing her at an early stage of her career was great. James Coburn hams it up as the villainous local authority chief Mr. Crisp who is determined to close the school.
