Weekend Watch: Sister Act 2 - Back In The Habit
We're continuing the festive vibes with another movie that is not a Christmas movie persay, but has one heck of a choir! Warm up your vocal chords for this well loved film, Sister Act 2: Back In The Habit.
"If you wanna be somebody, if you wanna go somewhere, you better wake up and pay attention.” Whoopi Goldberg - Sister Mary Clarence
Deloris (Whoopi Goldberg) has a successful show in Las Vegas, all thanks to the cover she received from St Katherin's Convent. She is surprised one evening to see her former sisters Sister Mary Patrick (Kathy Najimy) and Sister Mary Roberts (Wendy Makkena) waiting in the audience with a very special favour. The Sister's desperately need the unique expertise of Deloris to help them save their school, St. Francis Academy, from closing. Unable to say no, Deloris transforms back into Sister Mary Clarence and takes Music. Arriving at class, she sees an unruly bunch of kids realises she has her work cut out for her. Unwilling to give up, Sister Mary C slowly gets the kids on side, but one appears a little trickier than most - Rita (Lauren Hill). On top of this struggle, Deloris has Father Maurice (Barnard Hughes), and strict administrator, Mr. Crisp (James Coburn) complaining that a Las Vegas showgirl has no place teaching children. With all these pressures, will Deloris come out on top and save the school? Watch to find out!
Not much needs to be said about this all time classic! Brilliant cast, brilliant story and brilliant tunes. Doesn’t matter how many times you see it, it’s a win. For first time watchers, we envy you!
