Witty and well-done, but rated PG for a reason

This movie is absolutely brilliant! It's stuffed with great humor and a well-done plot, as well as original characters and acting that looks real. In some places, I could not stop laughing. The best part, in my opinion, was where the sisters were off to rescue the main character and needed a plane. The pilot wouldn't budge, so they started praying things like, "Father, do not blame this pilot for abandoning us in our hour of need," and "Please do not treat him with the same disregard that he's treated us," right in front of his face! I really liked the youngest nun, who was shy but sweet, along with the plump one, who was always cheerful.

However, it's rated PG--parental guidance--for a reason. This movie is not like Cinderella 2015 or Finding Dory, which were also PG but still real friendly; you seriously need to have parental guidance. It's not just there being "dam*" and "hel*" in the movie, nor is it that there are guns. Some things get a little edgy in the direction of sex.

Otherwise than the reasons it's rated PG, this movie is great and definitely a must-see!

Great entertainment

Sure, Sister Act is a bit silly and won't win any awards, but I really enjoyed it because it's fun, and its heart is in the right place. What elevates it is the musical numbers. Whoopi Goldberg (Sister Mary Clarence) shines as the sleazy Vegas lounge singer who finds herself rebooting a woeful church choir. She's been sent to the church's convent to be a nun under witness protection, after witnessing a mafia shooting in a nightclub. The casting is excellent - including the strict mother superior, played by Dame Maggie Smith, and a gaggle of very eccentric nuns led by the wonderful Mary Wickes and Kathy Najimy. The Goldberg role was going to be played by Bette Midler, but I think Goldberg is even better in this role - more streetwise and convincing is being a fish out of water. Goldberg injects a manic desperation to her very jaded floozy character, who, it turns out, does have a heart after all. But back to the music. The combination of Motown and revved up church songs works beautifully. Much of the movie's comedy comes from Goldberg's frustrating journey in trying to teach the unruly nuns to sing in tune. When the choir finally gets its act together, it's quite thrilling, and the choreography and cinematography of their performances is perfectly executed. Goldberg's character does go on a journey by finding her talent for directing the choir, and by helping the nuns start to step outside to minister to the local community. In some ways, Sister Act is like an old fashioned Hollywood movie. It is heavy on dialogue in indoor settings, and goes for pithy set-ups and one liners. It's a little corny. It's not that believable but it's just so enjoyable. It will lift your spirits and make you feel good. Which, to me, is a worthwhile achievement for any film.
