Relive all the fun, laughter and irresistible music of Sister Act - the inspired comedy hit that packed pews everywhere! Whoopi Goldberg stars as a sassy, low-rent lounge singer forced to hide out from the mob in the last place anyone would ever look for her - a convent. While she's there, her irreverent behavior attracts a flock of faithful followers and turns the nuns' tone-deaf choir into a soulful chorus of swingin' singin' sisters. But when the group earns rave reviews, her sudden celebrity jeopardizes her hidden identity. Harvey Keitel and Kathy Najimy join a heavenly cast in this habit-forming comedy bursting with '60s Motown hits.

What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Sister Act is a 1992 comedy in which Whoopi Goldberg plays a Reno casino singer who teaches a convent of nuns how to sing after she's placed there as part of a witness protection program. While most of this movie takes place in a cloistered Catholic convent, the story begins with a murder committed off-screen by the main character's boyfriend, a stereotypical Italian-American mafia character. On the other hand, the nuns in this movie are not a monolithic stereotype but viewed as individuals of varying personalities and temperaments. When the main character, a lounge singer with a shady past only alluded to, is sent to a convent to hide, she doesn't respect the rules (the movie's tagline: "No booze! No sex! No drugs! No way!"), makes many jokey references to what she's forced to live without, and sneaks out to a biker bar. While she rebels against her holy surroundings, she also uses her talents to spiff up the choir and the community. Some gun violence besides the killing at the beginning. Occasional profanity, including a strongly implied f-word when Goldberg's character says, dripping with angry sarcasm, "Bless you!"
