Consensus: Looking for a sweet musical comedy about a witness to a crime hiding out from killers in a convent? There's nun better than Sister Act.

The trailer has high energy and whammo punchlines. The movie is sort of low-key and contemplative and a little too thoughtful.

Light and fluffy as it is, "Sister Act" still has plenty of laugh-out-loud moments and some warm fuzzies as well as some believable action, and that makes it a 7 out of 10 in my book. But the sequel? It's more like a 5.

Nothing like a heartwarming Disney comedy with a body count to raise spirits.
