Deloris Van Cartier is again asked to don the nun's habit to help a run-down Catholic school, presided over by Mother Superior.

Washington Post by

A crass and confused cash-in on the inexplicable success of last summer's "Sister Act," Sister Act 2 is utterly lacking in the silly, sassy spark -- and even skimps on the sunny, semi-sacrilegious girl-group hymns -- that made the original a smash.


Empire by Angie Errigo

While the kids may sing a storm when at last they get down to mixing Beethoven, gospel and rap, in the good clean fun department this is monumentally weak and derivative.


Los Angeles Times by Kenneth Turan

Even by sequel standards, a minimal amount of creativity has gone into Sister Act 2, and not even the talents of its cast, including several likable young people, can compensate for this thrown-together feeling.


Austin Chronicle by Marjorie Baumgarten

Certainly movies are a business, but it's only good form for them to at least pretend that they have some reasons for existence other than the purely mercenary. The goal of entertainment has been forgotten here in the mad dash for formulaic guarantees. These comedy nun pushers have forgotten that there's no bottom line at heaven's gate.


Chicago Sun-Times by Roger Ebert

What's strange about Sister Act 2: Back in the Habit is that it abandons most of what people liked about the first movie and replaces it with a formula as old as the hills.
