Sister Act

Character mistake: During the end credits, three of the magazine covers spell Whoopi's character's name as "Delores." Two of the covers spell it "Deloris," as do the credits.

Character mistake: At the very beginning of the movie, young Delores' teacher tells her to go to the board and right down the names of the apostles alphabetically. Delores writes down, John, Paul and Peter with the nun nodding in approval until Delores writes down Elvis. Paul wasn't one of the original apostles and since the nun told Delores to write it down alphabetically, the first name on the board should have been Andrew but, the nun doesn't stop and correct Delores after she writes John's name down first.

Visible crew/equipment: When Eddie arrives at the casino near the end of the film, he opens the car door and in the reflection you can see the filming crew.

More quotes from Sister Act

Trivia: "Sister Act" is credited as being written by "Joseph Howard." He wasn't a real person. It was a pseudonym Paul Rudnick made up for the film since his script had been re-written so many times by so many different writers that it didn't resemble what he originally wrote. He settled on the name when "R. Chasuble" and "Goofy" were rejected as possible names.

More trivia for Sister Act

Question: When the nuns perform for the pope at the end of the film, the pope is seated in the balcony. I was wondering if this would actually happen in real life. Wouldn't the pope be down at the front of the church to celebrate the Mass? I suppose he could have gone up to the balcony just for the singing but that doesn't make much sense.

Answer: The event wasn't a Mass, it was a concert that the Pope requested. So neither he nor anyone else is there to worship; they're just there to hear the nuns sing.

Answer: The Pope wasn't celebrating the Mass. He was just a guest.
