The sisters come back to Delores's show to get her back as Sister Mary Clarence to teach music to a group of students in their parochial school which is doomed for closure. One of the girls, who is the most talented of the bunch, is forbidden to sing by her mother, although the choir has made it to the state championship. A group of stereotypical incompetent monks tries to stop them.

Did You Know?
When the students are on the basketball court, Lauryn Hill's character, Rita, starts rapping. Her rap wasn't a part of the script.
Before Sister Mary Clarence enters the music room for the first time, the students can be heard telling the same "Yo Mama" jokes through the door that they tell once she enters.
Sister Mary Fake!
A funny and charming film.
I just love to read some of the negative comments on a film like this. This
is a movie about a Las Vegas headliner who is called to help deal with
unruly kids at a Catholic school. You were expecting maybe Schindler's List?
When did it become such a crime just to enjoy a delightful movie packed
with talent all geared toward entertainment?
And what talent. Whoopi Goldberg, Lauryn Hill, Jennifer Love Hewitt, Kathy
Najimy, Maggie Smith, James Coburn, Michael Jeter, and more. It's adorable
and it handily meets its goal of being entertaining. All I can say is that
I pity people who have become so jaded, or are so concerned with being cool,
that they can't enjoy such a funny and charming film.
