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>

Good...For A Sequel
22 January 2000 | by See all my reviews

Compared to most sequels, this is in the top 20. But as for comparison to the first, there is almost no relation. The first was a good movie. Sister Act 2: Back In The Habit does not compare to most movies. Some cheap independent films, if well acted, are better. But some commercial movies are worse than this movie. It had no great acting. Some things were funny. But why didn't the nuns sing again? That would seem most logical to do in this film. And kids? Ok, I guess. But the story line could be changed, and then everything re-vamped, without the practically psychotic men from the monastery, and you have a great movie.
