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.

It does manage to deliver on the promise of an escapist fantasy.

If the humor gets a bit one-joke - I wish Molly Shannon's Mother Superior, in particular, had more to do - "The Little Hours" is nonetheless a cohesive vision.

A winning ensemble brings present-day attitude to Boccaccio's irreverent sex comedy.

Top Critic

A medieval convent comedy for the megaplex crowd, one that dispenses with the notion of nuns as prim-and-proper old maids who spend their days praying, and instead treats them as rude-and-repressed young women ...

It's juvenile and bawdy and stupid and crude, but reader, I'm sorry, I laughed. Frequently.
