Nuns On The Run (1990)

Some Like It Hot (1959) with wimples, Jonathan Lynn’s ecclesiastical cross-dressing caper sees two London gangsters (Eric Idle and Robbie Coltrane) hole up in a convent after ripping off the Triads.

The gags are far from sophisticated but the duo’s falsetto blagging is ridiculous enough to prompt the occasional chuckle.
