Sister Act

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.

Factual error: At the very end of the movie, the Pope gives the nuns a standing ovation. The other people seated in the box with him should have immediately risen at this time. Instead, the man seated to his left looks up at him, seeing that the pontiff has stood, but makes no movement to join him on his feet.

Continuity mistake: When Whoopi first takes over the choir, she asks the sisters to stand according to their singing voices. She asks where the sopranos are, and several women on opposite corners of the grouping raise their hands. She asks them to all move over to the left group, but only one of the two women on the right side actually does so.

Trivia: In the last scene, when the choir sings at the church, the Blues Brothers can be seen on the background in exactly the same position as the church number in the Blues Brothers film.

Trivia: Bette Midler was originally set to play the part of Deloris actually played by Whoopi Goldberg. The reason they wanted Bette was because of her singing voice and the need for Deloris to be able to sing.

Heather Singh

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.

Reverend Mother: Girl groups? Boogie-Woogie on the piano? What were you thinking?
Dolores: I was thinking more like Vegas, you know? Get some butts in the seats.

Biker: If this turns into a nuns' bar, I'm outta here!

Question: Why does the young red-headed nun, that doesn't sing very loud (can't remember her name), wear a different habit?

Chosen answer: It is because she is not, technically, a nun yet. She is a novice, one who is in the "trial period" of becoming a nun, but who has not made the final vows to join the order.

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.

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

Question: What food did the nuns serve and eat when Deloris was disgusted while eating it?

adamtrainman@aol.com

Answer: It appears to be just baked beans, likely without meat or spices. Nuns will often eat a very bland diet, especially a poor order dedicated to contemplation.

Answer: Possibly gruel.

Alan Keddie

Answer: It looked to me like a stew of some sort.
