In Sister Act 2: Back in the Habit, Whoopi Goldberg brings her lounge act back to the convent as the sisters beseech her to teach music to the school’s young hoods. To say the script is lame is to be charitable, but Whoopi’s irrepressible charm makes the nunsense watchable. Once again Hollywood doesn’t know when to leave well enough alone: Renting this sequel is like advancing a grade and getting last year’s teacher. D+
