Sister Act 2: Back in the Habit

Continuity mistake: When the kids first react to Delores scraping her nails on the blackboard, a girl near the front of the class, (later revealed as 'Maria') wearing sunglasses, is in the process of sitting in a chair. When Delores then asks them to put the desks back, she is now sitting on top of a different desk further to the right, is now holding a magazine and no longer wearing sunglasses. The short time elapsed makes it impossible for her to have moved.

Continuity mistake: When Whoopi Goldberg is pushing herself along the walkway after she is stuck to the chair, you can see her move out of view on the camera angle. They then have the angle from in front of her, still pushing herself along the walkway. They then go back to the previous angle and she is back where she started from without rolling backwards.

Continuity mistake: In the shot of Whoopi Goldberg after the class have put glue on her chair, she is looking through the door, and you can just see the bottom of the word 'ass' from 'music class', as the blind covers it. When she opens the door and walks in, you can see the entire 'music class'.

Continuity mistake: When Father Thomas tells the Sisters that Delores is a Las Vegas show girl, Sister Mary Robert puts her hands up to her face, but in the next shot she has her hands down by her side.

Continuity mistake: In the final song (Joyful Joyful) the camera pans out for an auditorium shot and Jennifer Love Hewitt (black top, red leggings, middle row stage left) is missing from the group. In the close up shots immediately before and after she is visible. (01:34:05)

Audio problem: In the scene where Tyler is preventing Whoopi Goldberg from sitting down by asking her stupid questions, there is a part where Frankie says, "Oh you're gonna get jumped after school Tyler." When the word "Oh" is heard, his lips aren't moving.

Question: What did Sister Mary Patrick mean when she said "you don't have to bite the donut to know it's sweet"? I believe this was in the scene when she was teaching her class when Deloris was looking for hers.

Answer: Sister Mary Patrick is being challenged by Sondra, one of her students, who says, "you can't answer any questions about... Sex." The sister's reply is, "oh, don't be so sure - you don't have to bite the donut to know it's sweet." She offers this as an analogy, in order to posit that one doesn't have to have engaged in sex acts to know what sex is all about, or that it may be enjoyable even when it isn't necessarily good for you.
