The sisters come back to Deloris'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

In Phil Collins' autobiography "Not Dead Yet" he says he was considered for the role of a theatre manager. See more »
Some of the "La La La" scenes in the new music room show the walls as having been painted, and the piano fixed, before the scenes in which the students paint the walls and fix the piano. See more »
[after Rita has just announced it was her business if she wanted to quit the choir]
Sometimes I feel this whole choir gig is a big joke, yo?
I'm sure we'll have a plethora of other opportunities.

When the Nun's get sick of the unruly behaviour the kids display during school, and the lack of work that is being done, Mother Superior (Maggie Smith) calls upon Sister Mary Clarence, Deloris Van Cartier for help. So she's goin' back to the convent. She's gettin' back into that uniform, and, she's gettin' back in the habit!
While there, Mary Clarence (Whoopi Goldberg) manages to transform the music class of non-listening, no attention-paying roudy little snots into a magical choir with voices of gold. It is here, that they decide to enter the regional championships for school singing (or something along those lines).
However, one girl in particular, once a drop-out, with an awesome voice (played brilliantly by Fugee's frontwoman Lauryn Hill), is not intially allowed to go. Her mother (played by another R 'N' B singer Sheryl Lee Ralph, also from 'Moesha') will not allow her to. So she forges her signature and they head off to the championships.
Jennifer Love Hewitt stars here, as one of the singing kids from the music class (bearing in mind, that she has since released 3 albums). Wendy Makkena and Kathy Najimy reprise their roles as two of the most-mentioned Nuns.
Once again, Whoopi manages to pull off another great movie, without a great deal of trouble. Lot's of fun, but I enjoyed the first one, just a little bit more. 7./10
