Sister Act

Comedy, Music

A simple, light and ultimately harmless comedy. I'd seen this one before a long time ago, in what almost feels like a previous life. I couldn't remember much of it besides Whoopi Goldberg being a nun, turns out that's exactly what you'll be getting from this film. Whether that's enough to call this a great film? Doubtful.

Goldberg plays a saucy nightclub singer who is the (unbeknownst) mistress of a crime lord. When she walks in on him killing a man, she runs to the police and confesses everything. In order to protect her until the trial, she is stashed away in a convent, the last place they'll come looking for her.

The formula for this film is tried and tested. I can't say it did much for me, luckily Goldberg is really in her element here and be herself she makes this a pretty easy watch. The film isn't overtly funny, but I've smiled more than once and that's more than I expected when I started this film. Not great, but watchable.

Three Men and a Little Lady

1990 / 104m - USA

Three Men and a Baby is a film that really didn't need a sequel, but since the first one turned out to be quite successful, a follow-up was inevitable. And so the baby became a young toddler, which gives the makers an excuse to revisit the same premise. The result is even worse than the first one.

Sylvia is still raising her daughter with the three bachelors. Work is taking a lot of her time, to make matters worse Sylvia decides to move to the UK, where she'll marry a rich English gentleman. At first the men are glad they can finally reclaim their freedom, but it soon dawns on them that they miss Sylvia and Mary.

The comedy is terrible (with the three "rapping men" scene being a true insult to good taste), the plot is bland and the performances don't save the film either. It's one of those family-friendly rom-coms that isn't really aimed at anyone in particular. A film best forgotten, though I'm pretty sure that won't be too difficult.
