"What can I say... Two great movies in one packet. These movies truelly show off Whoopi's comedy talents and wraps it up with a great feelgood movie. The supporting cast make the movie... And the soundtrack is to die for. My suggestion - BUY IT!!"
Sister Act/ Sister Act 2
(5 out of 5 stars)
"These films are incredible; all inclusive action, music, soul and thoughts of those of differed race,culture and age, whom have a rough journey to get to stardom. Thanks to faith the characters are able to be themselves, therefore, a choir is ensembled within the downhill juniour high. Nevertheless, it is not all happy smiles.There are moments of deepness.The film is dramatised by anti/climaxes and be ready to experience the unexpected! Whoopi Goldberg's presence in the film as Sister Mary Clarence entertains the audience with laughter and the chance to say: 'What the heck? I'm gonna sing my heart out till I drop!' During the entire movie, unsuspecting youth characters are introduced. They have been blessed with out standing voices, so that they will leave you in complete awe. Even in the credits they don't take a second to breathe!
I have come to a conclusion that if you like film that leave you speechless, energised and with a burning desire to sing, you will love these movies! Sister Act 1 and 2."
Two of the Best Films for Foster Children (And Adults)!

"Personally, I love these films. They're filled with talented, incredibly funny women who are clearly having a good time. Kathy Najimy, Mary Wickes, Maggie Smith...AND Whoopi Goldberg? What an incredibly deep ensemble! It almost seems too good to be true!
It just gets better with Sister Act 2, and one of the best parts of that film is that it's easy for a viewer to forget it's a movie and get caught up rooting for the young musicians and their incredible music.
These films have power. They touch people spiritually in a deeply positive, loving way. The message is clear and simple: "If you want to be somebody, if you want to go somwhere, you've got to wake up and pay attention!" And, never stop believing in yourself, add a little faith and a whole lot of creative humor!
Years ago I watched my temporary foster son, while recovering from incredible abuse, relax and smile while watching these films. Later, he invited several friends over and made them watch too. It was a magical thing that I can't fully explain, but it was about heart. (His other favorite film was Howard the Duck, by the way).
Thank you ladies, for the incredible gift of these two films.
I'm sure many of us feel eternally grateful!"
