Reviews

From Amazon.co.uk

In Sister Act, Whoopi Goldberg plays a Reno lounge singer who hides out as a nun when her villainous boyfriend (Harvey Keitel) goes gunning for her. Maggie Smith is the mother superior who has to cope with Whoopi's unorthodox behaviour, but the cute script turns the tables and shows the latter energising the stodgy convent with song and attitude. A real crowd-pleaser and a perfect vehicle for Goldberg, this is a happy experience all around. --Tom Keogh, Amazon.com

Whoopi Goldberg returns in Sister Act 2: Back in the Habit, 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, Amazon.com

Product Description

Whoopi Goldberg double bill. In 'Sister Act', Deloris Van Cartier (Goldberg) is a lounge singer with aspirations to be a star, but instead becomes the star witness to a mob murder. She goes to the police, is put into the state witness protection scheme and sent to a nunnery run by a starchy Mother Superior (Maggie Smith). Whilst there Deloris tries to fit in, but finds that everything she does seems to annoy her fellow nuns - until she discovers the choir. In 'Sister Act 2 - Back in the Habit', Deloris 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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Whoopi is FAB! 22 Dec 2008
Format:DVD
I love Whoopi Goldberg in this film. She's brilliant. The choir makes your own heart sing out loud with the music they sing at the convent. I recommend both these films to everyone, especially if a fan of Whoopi. The second one is just as good.

KEYWORDS:
Singing nuns, singer undercover as nun, under police protection, funny, choir, church, singing, avoiding bad guys.

4.0 out of 5 stars whoop,whoop,Whoopi !!! 4 Feb 2009
Format:DVD
Both films have a real feel good factor. These are films for all the family and you wont be able to stop yourself singing along.The plots go from ruthless to sad and from satisfying to hilarious. All the characters are portrayed amazingly with Whoopi Goldberg at her very best.

5.0 out of 5 stars A timeless family movie! 10 Dec 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Funny, silly, witty... for the whole family to enjoy! Hardly any bad language or nudity which is very rare these days. Whoopi always adds that extra spice to every movie she features in, even the, initially, not so nice sister in charge ends up falling in love with her. Enjoyed it, it may be ''old'' but it certainly has not gone out of fashion!

Sister Act 1 & 2 are very funny films with excellent casts and fantastic music. These films are great to watch if you are feeling a little melancholy as they are sure to cheer you up. Recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars A very happy mum 31 May 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I can remember these films when I was younger, my mum always said she loved them but the video tapes that she had broke so, it made perfect sense to buy her them for mothers day. She was estatic.
