The sisters come back to Deloris' (Whoopi Goldberg'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, Rita Watson (Lauryn Hill), who is the most talented of the bunch, is forbidden to sing by her mother, Florence Watson (Sheryl Lee Ralph), although the choir has made it to the state championship. A group of monks tries to stop them.Written by

When Rita is hesitating to sing at the beginning of the climactic number, her accompanist appears to be playing an electronic keyboard. However, when she finally really begins and the whole group is singing and dancing, the accompanist is clearly playing a grand piano. See more »
Good fun, but the story was just a variation on the original
This movie added a fresh perspective on the "Las Vegas singer joining a convent" idea. Although it lacked the charm of the original movie, it had a different kind of quaint charm, the way Goldberg acted out the touching bond between Sister Mary Clarence and her music pupils. However the story was just a variation on the original, and I thought it could have added a bit more of a twist, so it did get a bit deja-vu. Not as good as the original, but then they never are. For a sequel, it was good fun to watch, and the songs were of equal high quality to the original.
