On-the-run after witnessing her Las Vegas mobster boyfriend kill someone, a tacky lounge singer (Whoopi Goldberg) enters the Witness Protection Program - as a nun. Now the convent needs protection, from the new Sister Mary Clarence and her Vegas-style ideas on how to run the choir. A charming comedy and one of Goldberg's best movies.
"...The choral scenes [are] skillfully done..." -- Mike Clark , (USA Today)
"...Sidesplittingly funny....It's a new-style feel-good movie...Goldberg's voice -- a flat, gravelly drone of skepticism -- is a great comic instrument..." -- Owen Gleiberman , (Entertainment Weekly)
"...Graced with a clever script, a cast that will make you smile until you ache, and a snappy sense of pace....[It is] one of those rare occasions where everything almost magically falls into place..." -- Kenneth Turan , (Los Angeles Times)
