I loved this movie, Diane Keaton is incredible as usual
14 May 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I'm not even Catholic and I found this movie to be a riot in every way. The shocking ending is just that, shocking and meant to be that. The people that don't like this movie are watching it for the wrong reasons anyway. Watch it for what its meant to be, shocking humor and stop looking for the deep. Sister Mary Explains it all, simple as that. No more! No less!!! The actors are incredible and not even being Catholic I got the humor. I've recommended this to all my friends and family. Everyone that's seen it loved it. I think its going to end up being another cult classic. I'm actually looking for a copy to purchase. It's not available on Netflix as yet.
