Sister Act 2: Back in the Habit

Critics Consensus

Sister Act is off-key in this reprise, fatally shifting the spotlight from Whoopi Goldberg to a less compelling ensemble of pupils and trading its predecessor's sharp comedy for unconvincing sentiment.

    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.
