Goldberg plays Reno lounge singer Deloris Van Cartier who accepts a police offer of protection that entails hiding out in a San Francisco convent after she witnesses gangster boyfriend Vince LaRocca (Harvey Keitel) killing a man.
That’s about it for plot in this comedy from the Disney stable, and the remainder of the movie follows our heroine as she tries to bring the nuns and Maggie Smith’s strict Mother Superior into the 20th century.
Relying on some great songs and a superb cast (including Kathy Najimy as sunny Sister Mary Patrick), this successfully gets past the slight story to become a hugely enjoyable movie.
