My roommate made me watch Sister Act 'cause I'd never seen it before. Throw me in movie jail!
For the first time, I noticed Whoopi never has any eyebrows in her movies. Also, I'm pretty impressed she and Kathy Najimi did their own singing. And Mother Superior Maggie Smith rolls up to deliver her trademark withering quips. Harvey Keitel is in this for some reason as Whoopi's mobster boyfriend. What's not to love? I'm also shocked that Sister Act made $200 million in 1990s money?!?! Who knew Whoopi was once a blockbuster box office draw.
Also, about as much time has passed between Whoopi and those raucous nuns singing that 1964 Mary Wells hit, "My Guy (God)" and me watching Sister Act now. FEELIN' OLD YET? Can't wait for the remake where the church choir belts those classic hits from En Vogue, Chili Peps, Kris Kross, and TLC!
