Rotten Tomatoes® Score

Brian Lowry

Two trips to the convent is one too many.

Time Out
Trevor Johnston

Bouncy musical numbers and plenty of social concern, but the star, regrettably, is on autopilot.

June 21, 2017
New York Times
Caryn James

The sequel suffers from a lame, saccharine premise and a fatally earnest manner.

Washington Post
Rita Kempley

Shamelessly contrived pap.

Harmless, silly tale with vibrant music and dance.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that this sequel is even milder than the first movie with no violence or sexual content and just a few minor swear words. Conflict and intrigue are provided by a conspiracy of four well-meaning but rather dim nuns in their efforts to save a high school. They plot to pass off a Las Vegas singer as a music teacher and member of their religious order. The fraud they commit is thus shown to be "on the side of the angels."
