Product Description

In this sequel to 'Sister Act', Las Vegas singer Deloris Van Cartier (Whoopi Goldberg) is asked to resume the habit of a nun so that she can help raise funds for an ailing ghetto school. Deloris agrees to go undercover as the school's new music teacher. Singer Lauryn Hill makes her acting debut in a supporting role.

From Amazon.co.uk

Whoopi Goldberg returns in a gratuitous, poorly written sequel that contrives a reason to get her character back into Maggie Smith's convent. The "socially conscious" plot finds Goldberg being asked to relate to a bunch of street kids and pull them together into a choir. Since a bad guy is needed, the script grabs that old chestnut about a rich guy (James Coburn) preparing to close down the convent's school, and runs with it. The film is slow and unconvincing from start to finish, although co-stars Mary Wickes and Kathy Najimy get some good laughs, and the music is pretty spirited. --Tom Keogh

Like most films starring Whoopi Goldberg this film doesn't dissapoint. Whoopi as Deloris becomes an undercover nun once again - this time in order to rehabilitate an awkward, urban school. I personally think this film has more appeal to young people than the first being quite inspirational, but doesn't quite live up to the first.
However, it is still brilliant and I found it really interesting to see such famous faces as Jennifer Love Hewitt and Lauryn Hill (who steals the show) as teenagers.
On DVD the film dissapoints with no extras but both the picture quality and sound is excellent. If you liked the first film or believe in hip-hoppy religious music as restorative - buy this now!

It must be said that this is the best sequel that you're gonna find. With a stunning cast, and Whoopi Goldberg returning in great comedy form, it's hard to go wrong. However unlikely the story may seem, it is very spirited, with a superb soundtrack including the impeccable voice of Lauryn Hill. And, yes, I too am a musician, but anyone can relate to the music, because it is so upbeat, and I most definately sing along as I'm sure everyone will and do.

This film really is very uplifting and pleasanlty simple. With a whitty storyline and colourful characters, Sister Act 2 is a great easy-to watch film. In this sequel, Whoopi Goldberg returns to save the day, pulling a group of troubled youths together through their mutual love for music. It is the musical aspect of this film that makes it shine, with the voice of Lauryn Hill being most poignant. Hill's troubled character's experiences during this film also offer hope for any aspiring singers or actresses, who's dreams are suppressed as a result of their parents or freinds lack of belief in their talents.
Overall this is a great all-round film and definately worth buying!

I love this film for so many reasons.Not only do you get a high camp o.t.t opening that will take your breath away but you get a film that really knows what it is doing.Its true that you have a slice of American cheese at times but this is a film that is trully heart warming and very funny.The musical numbers are fantastic and full of energy and the acting is believable and at times suprisingly understated.Whoopi is a joy to watch so is Maggie Smith,the monks and nuns all play their parts to perfection giving off a warmth to their performance.My favorite scene is the one where Delorise gives Rita the book I dare you to watch it without having a tear in your eye!

'Sister Act' is one of my favourite films, and given its worldwide success, it's easy to see why Disney were so keen to make a sequel post-haste. (Whoopi Goldberg was apparently less keen, and only agreed when Disney agreed to fund her pet project, 'Serafina'.) Unfortunately, this film falls somewhat flat in comparison to its uplifting predecessor. It's far from awful - it just feels laboured. The plot is weak and heavily contrived to a) get Goldberg back in a nun's habit and b) stretch an extra chapter from a story that actually got a perfect ending at the close of the first film. It's great to see the majority of the original cast back (even though Dolores and the Mother Superior now being friends means the comic conflict is lost), but the scriptwriters simply don't know what to do with these characters, and seem to hope the audience will just be happy to see them again. And in a way we are, but it's a bit like a school reunion in a small town - it's great to catch up with all your old friends, but after a while you realise you've moved on and there's a reason you live in the city now.

For a background film on a rainy bank holiday, 'Sister Act 2' is amiable enough. By the end though, you'll be glad all involved resisted the urge to milk the cash cow a third time.

absolutely fab! at school we always watch it in music when its end of term, its somewhat of a tradition now to put on sister act 2 and dance along and sing along to the songs! Whoopi is great once again and the nuns are hilarios as ever, as are the "teens" in the movie. best songs are "joyful joyful" at the end and "ball of confusion"..... just one great film!

By Amazon Customer TOP 500 REVIEWER on 27 Dec. 2014
Format: DVD
'Sister Act 2' is a likeable, if slightly rushed sequel to the hit, and ultimately superior 'Sister Act'. Whoopi Goldberg returns to the nunnery and this time her mission is to save a school from closing down. She's soon 'back in the habit', when she teaches music to the school choir (and one of the girls is none other than Jennifer Love Hewitt), in her own unique, but tried and tested successful way. In fact, it's the music side of things that actually steals the show, as the choir is so good. The wonderful Maggie Smith also reprises her role as the strong-armed Reverend Mother.

It's all good fun, although the jokes do start to wear a little thin towards the end. As is often the case, film number two doesn't top the first one, but it will still satisfy fans of it's predecessor.
