“Sister Act” (Touchstone, 1992). A clever Whoopi Goldberg vehicle about a nightclub singer named Deloris who, after witnessing a violent crime committed by her mobster boyfriend, is hidden in a convent to protect her before her court date. During her stay, Deloris turns the convent’s dreadful choir into a rockin’ girl group, much to the chagrin of the mother superior. Irreverent and really funny. Also stars Kathy Najimy, Mary Wickes, Harvey Keitel and the great Maggie Smith. Written by “Joseph Howard” (a pseudonym for the many writers that worked on the film, including Paul Rudnick, Nancy Meyers, and Carrie Fisher). Directed by Emile Ardolino. “Bless you.”
