Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Light and fluffy as it is, "Sister Act" still has plenty of laugh-out-loud moments and some warm fuzzies as well as some believable action, and that makes it a 7 out of 10 in my book. But the sequel? It's more like a 5."
‑ James Plath, Movie Metropolis
"Terribly unfunny musical-comedy with nails-on-blackboard performances"
‑ Brian Mckay,
"Okay star vehicle for Whoopi"
‑ Ken Hanke, Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)
"Nothing like a heartwarming Disney comedy with a body count to raise spirits."
‑ Brian Orndorf,
"Pretty stupid."
‑ Jeffrey M. Anderson, San Francisco Examiner
"A silly, harmless star vehicle for Whoopi Goldberg--sort of nuns on the run."
‑ Emanuel Levy, EmanuelLevy.Com
"About a lounge singer who finds a mission in life that transforms her."
‑ Frederic and Mary Ann Brussat, Spirituality and Practice
