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.

TV Guide

A slapdash affair, with paper-thin plotting and characters more or less redeemed by some winning musical sequences.

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.

It's kind of frightening that it took three writers to come up with this "plot".

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.

This shoddiest of sequels should be the last act for these sorry Sisters.

Shamelessly contrived pap.

It's clear that no one's creative juices were really flowing on this project. Not even trickling.

Sister Act 2: Back In the Habit is merely a rehash of the first film, with less wit and charm.

As for Goldberg herself, there is similarly little for her to do, and she looks bored.
