Not as bad as the critics usually say.

I usually don't like to criticize a sequel before the opening movie, but I decided to make an exception because I watched the first movie years ago and intend to re-watch it as soon as I can. After revving up a nunnery in the first film, singer Deloris Van Cartier is called back by the nuns to help them to prevent the closure of a Franciscan high school by taking up the position of music teacher. The film retained much of the original cast, and it was nice to see the most charismatic and funny nuns of the first convent in a different setting. The script is absolutely predictable, and we instantly realized much of the story, but that wasn't a problem for me because it didn't prevent it from being funny and entertaining.

Whoopi Goldberg is the star and she carried the film on her back to the end, with coolness and professionalism. I don't know how much she liked to do this character but the fact is that she deserved the applause and behaved like a pro. The same can be said of Maggie Smith, a notable actress who gave us the Mother Superior. Kathy Najimy, Wendy Makkena, Mary Wickes, Barnard Hughes, Lauryn Hill and Ryan Toby also deserve the congratulations for the work they have done.

"Sister Act 2" is far from the impact and magic of the first film, and that's certainly why it has always been messed up by criticism. But we cannot go so far as to say that it's entirely bad. There are quality values here, the main one being the ability the film still possesses to entertain the audience and not make us regret having watched it. And this movie, from the moment it's a comedy, is all about being funny and entertaining. It's not supposed to be a work of art nor the movie of our lives, but just make us laugh, and if its true that it cannot get us laughing out loud, it will definitely make us smile.

Singing, singing, dancing and Whoopie!

Of course it is a formula. It was 1993, remember 1993. It's Andy Hardy dates Sister Mary Clarence with James Coburn as a villain. And who cares? This film helps people remember how much fun Whoopi Goldberg could be and there are some wonderful music numbers that will get you moving and feeling good. Then there is possibly the best credit run ever at the film's conclusion. Plus you look at the young cast and think isn't that Jennifer Love Hewitt or Lauryn Hill? Older audiences will recognize Barnard Hughes, Mary Wickes, Michael Jeter, and Dame Maggie Smith the Dowager Countess of Grantham.

There is nothing bad about just admitting you were entertained and felt good as the credits roll on. I wish Whoopi had stayed with film and Broadway. To this day I remember her one woman show on Broadway which was later broadcast as an HBO special. What a talented woman. I know it's PC to say "person" or "actor," but I don't care; Whoopi Goldberg is a great entertainer and I can't understand why we can't accept and acknowledge she is a woman. Her performances over the years have made me cry and laugh such that I thought I would burst.

Know what, just go to Apple or Amazon, rent the movie. Sit back with some popcorn and prepare to laugh and clap and maybe even dance to the signing. I bet you hit IMDb to see what else Whoopi was in that you missed.

Undercover nun

With Sister Act 2: Back In The Habit Whoopi Goldberg is back as a faux nun who gets a request from Mother Superior Maggie Smith from the first Sister Act to go back undercover to help save a Catholic School run by the Catholic brothers headed in this case by Barnard Hughes. They need a music teacher and Whoopi's credentials were amply proved in the first Sister Act.

Once again plot gambits are taken from those Bing Crosby classics that Leo McCarey did. Like in The Bells Of St. Mary's Whoopi is sent in to a failing Catholic School. Like in Going My Way she forms a really great choir from the raw material she finds in her music class. She also has to deal with a secular villain with church ties. James Coburn is hardly anything like the lovable Henry Travers as Mr. Bogardus in The Bells Of St. Mary's and has to be dealt with differently.

If you bring Whoopi back you surely have to give her that lovable posse she formed from the first Sister Act. Kathy Najimy, Wendy Makkena and the lovable veteran Mary Wickes have all returned as well.

The music is the best part of this film especially Lauryn Hill who is the centerpiece of that choir. Lauryn's scenes with Sheryl Ralph playing her mother who thinks her music aspirations are foolish are quite tender and real.

The element of personal danger for Whoopi is not present in the sequel, it's lighter and at times a bit silly. Still I enjoyed it and Whoopi Goldberg's fans and many others will as well.
