Sister Act

Continuity mistake: When the choir are singing the first song that Deloris helps them with, Sister Mary Robert gains confidence and sings louder. Toward the end of the song, she puts her hands together in a praying gesture while she is singing loudly, but in the next shot her arms are by her side.

Continuity mistake: The number of nuns in the choir changes between when Mary Clarence joins, the later casino scenes, and the end concert for the Pope. At the start, there are over 20, and by the ending, there are about 12-15.

Suggested correction: There's no rule that states how many nuns had to be in the choir. Venues have limited space on their stage so the whole band is not always able to fit in.

Continuity mistake: When Deloris is on TV, we see her lift a stuffed rabbit to try and hide her face, she then gives it to Mary Robert and lifts the kid to her face but when Eddie says "I'm gonna kill her. I'm gonna kill her myself", if you look on the TV, you can see her doing the exact same thing again.

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.

Question: Why did Delores not wear the head cover of the habit in the end when they sing for the pope? Her hair is fully visible and she is wearing loop earrings.

Answer: She was never a real nun and there was no longer a reason for her to be in full disguise as one. She is still close to the other sisters, and therefore is partially clad in a nun's habit, for the concert, but she is also showing her secular side.
