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>

A funny and charming film.
3 March 2001 | by (Indianapolis, IN) – See all my reviews

I just love to read some of the negative comments on a film like this. This is a movie about a Las Vegas headliner who is called to help deal with unruly kids at a Catholic school. You were expecting maybe Schindler's List? When did it become such a crime just to enjoy a delightful movie packed with talent all geared toward entertainment?

And what talent. Whoopi Goldberg, Lauryn Hill, Jennifer Love Hewitt, Kathy Najimy, Maggie Smith, James Coburn, Michael Jeter, and more. It's adorable and it handily meets its goal of being entertaining. All I can say is that I pity people who have become so jaded, or are so concerned with being cool, that they can't enjoy such a funny and charming film.
