Reviews

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

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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Oh happy day when this came! 17 Jan 2003
By Benson VINE VOICE
Format:DVD
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!

5.0 out of 5 stars The best sequel you're likely to find 18 Jun 2001
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
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.

3.0 out of 5 stars Musical Sensation! 10 Jan 2005
Format:DVD
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!

5.0 out of 5 stars joyful joyful! 23 Oct 2003
Format:DVD
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!

5.0 out of 5 stars sister act 2! 11 Aug 2003
Format:DVD
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!

3.0 out of 5 stars A feel good movie 19 Dec 2000
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
Sister Act 2: Back in the Habit may be a sequel but it is still worth watching. The impact Deloris (Whoopi Goldberg) made at the convent in Sister Act has resulted in a change of setting, as the nuns try to run a school of rowdy teenagers. When Deloris is drafted in to help, despite no previous training as a teacher, she introduces the kind of humour, fun and music that made Sister Act such a hit.
This may not be the best movie ever made, and it doesn't quite live up to the success of Sister Act, but if you need cheering up, or just feel like having a laugh, it is worth watching. This feel good movie is enhanced greatly by the music throughout.

5.0 out of 5 stars Just a cup of love...
As one of the songs that are sung, this film is certainly just a cup (or rather a mug) of love. Love Sister Act 1 and 2 and wish there was a 3 also. Read more

3.0 out of 5 stars Not as good as number 1
This movie is not as good as Sister Act 1, but it's ok. The characters are not very well developed and the songs - mostly rap-style - are a bit annoying. Read more
