Storyline

The sisters come back to Delores's show to get her back as Sister Mary Clarence to teach music to a group of students in their parochial school which is doomed for closure. One of the girls, who is the most talented of the bunch, is forbidden to sing by her mother, although the choir has made it to the state championship. A group of stereotypical incompetent monks tries to stop them. Written by Scott Hutchins <scottandrewh@home.com>

The premise has so many wonderful possibilities...
3 August 2013 | by (Lincolnshire, UK) – See all my reviews

Whoopi Goldberg is pointlessly back, this time training Mother Superior Maggie Smith's useless choir for a music contest and trying to stop James Coburn's plan to close down their school. This one is, I suppose, slightly better than the original, but it's no thanks to flat direction, statically staged musical segments, the irritating young cast (including the ever-annoying Lauren Hill) or Kathy Najimy being as bloody irritating as always.

The big finale fizzles out because the runners-up in the contest are a lot better than the choir we're supposed to be rooting for, but surely no one's interested by that point anyway. It's left to Goldberg to carry this clunker and although she only signed on to get a pet project made, she alone keeps it going; nobody behind the camera seems to care one way or the other.
