  • The lesbian angle may be downplayed, but Sister Aimee offers other pleasures, such as a catchy and showstopping musical number. Hollyman delivers an impressive performance here, but it is the sultry Suarez Paz who truly captivates.

  • The narrative shifts between the ridiculous and the bland, the camp and the straight-faced, never quite knowing what tone to strike for a story that's admittedly absurd.

  • Sister Aimee is a brilliant road trip movie centered on empowered female characters and reimagines an obscure event from early 20th century American history.

  • A satisfying blend of vintage comedy, western, romance, and musical elements, all combined to make one heck of a good tall tale.

  • Buck and Schlingmann's naughty pre-code sensibilities give the film additional bite, but what they've created is blazingly original and while "Sister Aimee" sees its star running away from the Lord, you can expect to be saying "Praise Be" by the end.
