Nuns are suddenly all the rage again. From Sister Jude on American Horror Story: Asylum to Isabelle Huppert's Sapphic leanings in The Nun, it's time to talk ladies of the cloth. So, team, who is your favorite sister?

Dara Nai: I give the old movie, Two Mules for Sister Sara, two rosary-clutching thumbs up, mostly because Shirley MacLaine plays Sister Sara, a cigar-smoking, whiskey-drinking nun who runs around 1800s Mexico with a cynical mercenary (a pre-chair-talking Clint Eastwood), fighting the French. She uses him and abuses him, handles him and bandages him, and ultimately outwits him when she reveals her secret at the end of the film. I won't reveal what it is, but if you know this movie, you know it's awesome.

Dorothy Snarker: Didn't Jodie Foster play a one-legged nun in The Dangerous Lives of Altar Boys? I never saw the movie, »
