Format: VHS Tape
This is a great film, and people who know how to connect with real folks understand that. For people who aren't raising teens or who just don't connect with kids, this movie may at first glance be trite and uninteresting. Take another look, because kids really CAN do this--it isn't just a cool idea for a film. What tugs the heart is watching it happen (plus the music is terrific). A variation on "To Sir With Love" or "Mr. Holland's Opus" or "Finding Forrester" or "October Sky"? Sure, I guess. But WHY do producers and directors keep creating these great films, and WHY do we keep loving them? In a time when the government wants us to hold schools and teachers "accountable" for the demise of our youngsters and our society, these stories show us what MANY real teachers--and students--are doing, and it gives us hope. Watch this movie and let these kids be real to you. Just knowing where your kids are and what they are doing isn't enough. Somebody (you?) will have to be there for them. THEN something good can happen.

In "Sister Act 2: Back In The Habit", Whoopi Goldberg returns as Sister Mary Clarence. This time, she and the sisters work in a San Francisco High School to save the school from closing down by truning their music class into a chior.

I never found this film to be just as funny as the first "Sister Act" movie. But there were a couple of great musical sequences, which ultimately saved this movie. Whoopi with the classic rock/soul medley in the opening and the kids chior singing "Joyful Joyful", which I found to be pretty good. I think the most important element about the second Sister Act movie was that several members of the kids chior went on to star in other movies, including Jennifer Love Hewitt and Alanna Urbach. But the most notable in the kids chior was future Fugees member and grammy award winner Lauryn Hill. Kathy Najimy, Mary Wickes, Wendy Makkena, James Coburn, Ryan Toy of the R&B group City High and Maggie Smith also star.

I've read all of the reviews on SA2 and it is quite obvious this movie is not for everyone, however, if you enjoy "feel good " movies , this is for you. The storyline iis quite predictable, the acting is good , but the music is a delightful bonus,just wish there was more of it. I know that if I'm feeling a little down, I can pop in this movie and feel better.

The original Sister Act is a movie I love and watch over and over as I have it on DVD. I had never seen this sequel because I heard it was terrible, but curiosity got the better of me and I decided to rent it. Well, everyone was right, it is terrible. Whoopi Goldberg is always great, but the plot is so weak, boring, and predictable, that her acting can't really save it. Also, I love Maggie Smith and was disappointed that she is actually hardly in this one, seemed like they put her in just enough to list her as being in the cast so people who love her would come see it. So, I am sorry to say I can not recommend this and I will be basically wiping it from my memory so that the wonderful movie that is the original Sister Act will remain untainted. Save your money and go watch the original Sister Act again.

In the typical style of sequels, Sister Act 2 is a lesser movie than Sister Act 1 but still okay. This one just seemed far less funny and much more social commentary than the first movie. That being said, we generally watch this one after watching No. 1.

I've seen this movie and am glad to have a copy. Sister Act 2: BAck in the Habit can't and it will never be compared to the original one but the sequel has a distinct uniqueness and individual artistry to follow up for. Sister Mary Clarence, a music teacher is back again to teach young and talented kids at St. Francis School in San Francisco. The sisters need her help and they're running out of ideas on how to stop the school from closing down. Finally, with a lot of PATIENCE, help and lots of encouragements the students proved to everybody by joining the competition that they're not just bunch of kids but they can do GOOD things through MUSIC and TEAMWORK. My favorite part of the movie when they started performing "Joyful,Joyful" with Lauryn Hill doing the intro I was blewn away.

I love Whoopi Goldberg and am blinded by any faults in her acting. Left to her own devices, she has the capacity to make tears roll down one's eyes - either in laughter or sadness. So, yes, I really enjoyed this movie, although I liked Sister Act 1 better. I suspect that I felt that way because S A 2 is somewhat predictable. Yet, it is, along with the first S.A., a movie that I will watch once every year or so, just for the laughs.
