Doug (vo): Yeah, forgot this was a Disney movie, huh? Whoopi Goldberg stars in ''Sister Act'', but do I even need to explain that to you? This is maybe her most popular movie. It's Whoopi Goldberg as a nun. This just has great comedic potential. When it came out, I loved it. The comedy, the music, the story, I just thought it was great. And now looking back as an adult, it's...good. It's good. I, uh...wow, I remember this being a lot funnier. There's a lot of times where I find myself not laughing where I remember laughing as a kid, yet there's still something very likeable about it. And I think a lot of it is the actresses playing the nuns. Speaking of which, how do they enter the picture?

==Story==
Doug (vo): Whoopi Goldberg plays a singer named Deloris Van Cartier. Isn't that a great name? She's going out with a mobster, but isn't really aware of that, until she witnesses a murder. She runs away and goes to the cops, who are looking to put her in witness protection. The mobster, though, played by Harvey Keitel, has connections all over the place, so they have to get creative with where they hide her. ''(A shot of Deloris dressed as a nun is shown) ''Wah-wah! Enter Maggie Smith as Mother Superior at a nearby church. She is the funniest thing in this movie. And that's saying a lot, because most of the performers in this are very funny. She thinks it's best to disguise Deloris and put her in a nun outfit and have her blend in with the rest of the other nuns. Of course, hilarity ensues, but a lot of that comes from not Whoopi's reactions, but Smith's reactions. The minute she sees her, she wants nothing to do with her, leading to probably my favorite line delivery in the whole film.

Doug (vo):
 
''(A scene showing Reverend Mother speaking with Monsignor O'Hara is shown)''
 
 
Monsignor O'Hara: You have taken a vow of hospitality to all in need.
 
 
Reverend Mother: I lied.
 
 
Doug (vo): She just has that great look, like, "I know I can't get away with this, but let me try anyway, because I'm that desperate not to be with this person."

Doug (vo): And the whole film is filled with little moments like that. The writing, honestly, is not that great. If you were to read it, you probably wouldn't get that many laughs. Actually, you'd probably say it's a little too kid-ish. But the facial expressions, the line delivery, the reactions, all these nuns have distinct personalities, and they work wonderfully off each other.
