Film #43: Sister Act (1992)

Plot - This film's actually a lot worse than I remember. Whoopi has to become nun because she witnesses crime. Everybody thinks she's such a great nun that they save her in the end.

Form - Boring. Every scene feels like its constantly switching between the same two shots.

F/X - None.

Acting - Harvey Keitel is great. I don't think I'll ever be convinced that Whoopi's the right person to play a "girl of sin". Also, why is it so sinful to sing at a hotel? She should have been a hooker.

Mise en scene - The church is very bright and the bars have worse lighting.

Quotables - There's a lot of gags about how Whoopi likes sex, much to the other nuns confusion.

Cool stuff - Disappointing. It's sort of like Gremlins, attempting to target both adult and children audiences, but without anything enjoyable for either unless you really, really love Whoopi.
