Movie Info

Outgoing Mary (Hayley Mills) and the introverted Rachel (June Harding) cause no end of trouble for the exasperated Mother Superior (Rosalind Russell) in this children's comedy that is fun for all ages. The girls cause comic catastrophes at a religious school run by nuns with some civilian help from teacher Mrs. Phipps (Gypsy Rose Lee). Hollywood legend Ida Lupino directs her first film since the 1953 feature The Bigamist.

Nun comedy fluff Roz Russell and Hayley Mills fills family bill.

Silly fluff with top-notch performers. No one else could say "scathingly brilliant" with as much scathing brilliance as Hayley Mills, and Russell is magnificently wry as Mother Superior.

Audience Reviews for The Trouble With Angels

Update 07/29/08: I just watched this again for the umpteenth time. It never fails to move me. I'm jumping it up to five full stars and adding it to my Top 100. End update.

And speaking of Hayley Mills, this is a classic. Rosalind Russell was a huge talent. And if you can believe it, Ida Lupino directed this. No, Hayley, you cannot become a nun. Please. But I'm convinced that it's what you must do. Where is June Harding? She was so good in this. Rosalind Russell is an all-time all-star.

I watched this for Rosalind Russell... sadly, it was not all Rosalind could be. Cute in some ways, but still eh. TOTALLY DUG the 60s outfits and hair, however.

This movie is a lot of fun, and if you went to a Catholic school too, like I did, it'll bring back memories. It's really funny, and the story is good, I recommend watching it.
