Because many scenes were shot in Reno, the cast members would often stay in their nun outfits and wander off the set to pull some pranks at the casinos, bars, clubs, and strip clubs. Kathy Najimy and Wendy Makkena tell a story that they once ordered wine and fries to their hotel room and answered the door in their nun outfits while loud porn was playing on the television just to mess with the hotel staff.

When Sister Mary Roberts gives Sister Mary Clarence the clock to help her wake up in the morning, she says "I set the clock for 5:00," but the clock is really set for 7:00. This is probably because the film makers flipped or mirrored the image in that scene. See more »

Who can name all the apostles? Yes, Delores?
John, Paul, George... and Ringo!

Delores Wilson, you are the most unruly, disobedient girl in this school! Now, I want you to march right up to that blackboard and write the names of all the apostles alphabetically.

TBS broadcasts overdub a quick feedback-like squeal sound during the opening musical number to obscure an obscenity, when Whoopi Goldberg's character inserts the comment "You don't give a s--t" as the song "Heat Wave" ends. See more »
Great Comedy BUT- It is a rip off of an older movie.
"Bill-258" compared it to the 1940 film "Brother Orchard". Similarly but more-so, I can compare it to a UK semi-drama film of a wayward teenager, busted for Prostitution & drugs. The teen is sentenced to a Nunnery for re-hab. The rest is identical to the Sister Act ... right down to the guitar playing, folk-singing nun! (The teen's boyfriend/pimp is the equivalent to the gangsters in SA) I saw this movie long ago on TV & cannot recall the name. I believe it circa 1960 but am not sure. If anyone knows of this movie title, please email me. Please respond. Thanks!
