|A reno lounge singer brings rock 'n' roll to a choir of uns while hiding out from the mob in a convent.|
"A hilariously divine comedy! ABC Radio Network
"...a plum part...for Whoopi. Leonard Maltin's Movie & Video Guide
Editor's NoteOn-the-run after witnessing her Las Vegas mobster boyfriend kill someone, a tacky lounge singer (Whoopi Goldberg) enters the Witness Protection Program - as a nun. Now the convent needs protection, from the new Sister Mary Clarence and her Vegas-style ideas on how to run the choir. A charming comedy and one of Goldberg's best movies.

Plot SummaryA lounge singer, specializing in the enthusiastic performance of Motown classics, has to hightail it out of Reno when she witnesses her gangster boyfriend icing an unfortunate stool pigeon. The cops want her testimony so that they can put her ex-lover behind bars, but they know he'll be trying to silence her permanently.| The Witness Relocation Program eventually hides her in the last place they think anyone would look: a convent. With nothing to do but lay low and kill time, the feisty, incognito nun starts to go a little stir-crazy -- that is, until the Mother Superior puts her in charge of the convent's choir. It's a hopeless group musically, but the former lounge lizard realizes she's found her calling and quickly whips her recruits into top R&B form. Meanwhile, her ex has found out where she's hiding and plans a visit with a few of his more "influential" friends.
