Sister Act [VHS] 
Deloris Van Cartier (Whoopi 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 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

After fleeing from her gangster boyfriend, struggling cabaret singer Deloris (Whoopi) hides in a convent. Under a witness protection programme, she quickly befriends several of the real nuns. On the other hand, she is an immediate source of irritation to the Mother Superior (Maggie Smith). It isn't long before Deloris shows what a remarkable woman she is, turning the choir around, to the extent that the Pope wishes to see it, and giving hope and inspiration to the ladies. The result is a laugh a minute, but heart warming movie.
With great performances, a classic soundtrack, and a cute but hilarious script, 'Sister Act' will never get old.
