The Little Hours

Critics Consensus

The Little Hours gets plenty of goofy mileage out of its gifted ensemble, anchoring its ribald laughs in a period comedy with some surprisingly timely subtext.

Movie Info

Medieval nuns Alessandra (Alison Brie), Fernanda (Aubrey Plaza), and Ginevra (Kate Micucci) lead a simple life in their convent. Their days are spent chafing at monastic routine, spying on one another, and berating the estate's day laborer. After a particularly vicious insult session drives the peasant away, Father Tommasso (John C. Reilly) brings on new hired hand Massetto (Dave Franco), a virile young servant forced into hiding by his angry lord. Introduced to the sisters as a deaf-mute to discourage temptation, Massetto struggles to maintain his cover as the repressed nunnery erupts in a whirlwind of pansexual horniness, substance abuse, and wicked revelry.

Audience Reviews for The Little Hours

    This is quite an interesting concept that gets a lot of mileage but is a hit and miss affair. The film starts with a lot of quirky humor but it can't maintain the pacing as it moulds into melodrama. The cast are impressive as they banter without a full script, something I discovered after. I thought the film was going to be slightly better and a potential cult film but it only comes out above average. The biggest lag is waiting for the next zany scene which is either odd or slighly funny. Reilly is one of the funniest in a small but great role for him, he can do so much with so little. I had watched this with recommendations and while it is funny, it just can't keep the momentum the whole way. 10-11-2017.

    An uproarious sex farce and thankfully one that is no where near as dependent on anachronistic jokes as I had anticipated.

    Man was I ever ready to love The Little Hours. It actually pretty much hadn't even entered my mind that I might not. Unfortunately, that was the case. Don't get me wrong, I'm not saying that The Little Hours is terrible, far from it. It's better than a lot of the American comedies I've watched recently. But overall my experience with the movie would be described more as "interesting" or "different" or maybe even "okay" rather than a flat out "good". I'm always happy to see Aubrey Plaza and Alison Brie getting work (especially outside of things like Mike & Dave Need Wedding Dates or Get Hard respectively), but I was a little disappointed by The Little Hours.

    Like a Catholic schoolboys fevered fantasy here is a Python-esque/National Enquirer look under-the-covers, as it were, of a secluded medieval convent. Expect some smiles as the ladies do their all to subvert expectations, brooking their natural inclinations inasmuch as it is possible, which is all that Catholic schoolboys among you dream of. Frequently. In secret. Not quite cult, but certainly in that vein.
