Sister Act (1992)


Whoopi Goldberg
Maggie Smith
Harvey Keitel

Directed by Emile Ardolino

In 1992 Whoopi Goldberg gave us a comedy performance that will always be one of her most memorable role. The movie Sister Act was just a comedic genius of a film, the songs, the acting and the plot were just so well fitted to give you a movie that you will always remember.
It won two Golden Globes for Best Motion Picture – Musical or Comedy and Best Actress – Motion Picture Comedy or Musical for Whoopi Goldberg. The movie was a huge financial success and a critical success that led them to make a second part.

This musical comedy of some sort has a plot that shows our lead Deloris (Whoopi Goldberg) starting out being a naughty little girl. We see her all grown singing in a nightclub where nobody cares enough to listen. She is apparently dating a married mobster named Vince LaRocca and we see them get into an argument as she is asking him to leave his wife.
He sends her a fur coat later on to try and smooth things over, Deloris later discovers that the coat was not meant for her at first. In anger she marches up to give it back to him in his office and witnesses a murder.

She runs to the cops and a Lieutenant Souther who is doing everything to get LaRocca. He convinces her to go into a witness protection program with a convent in a run-down neighborhood.

Her name was changed to Sister Mary Clarence and she struggles to deal with life as a nun for even just the temporary basis. There at the convent she is elected to become choir leader and she turns things around, helping the choir to excel in all their activities and bringing back life to the church attached to the convent.

But that was not all with LaRocca, he continues to use his contacts to look for Deloris. Soon we get into somewhat chase between LaRocca want to get Deloris so as to stop her from testifying and Souther wanting to save her life, so she can testify.

The movie is funny anytime you sit down to watch it and I can guarantee you will be ordering your own copy when you do. You may be tempted to see the second part of this movie which was done in 1993. It was a critical and financial disaster and for good reasons too. The movie just packed young real life musicians in it and just didn't bother to add a good tale.
