When listener Kev commissioned 1990's "Nuns on the Run," we were ready for a Shat The Movies sleeper hit. Monty Python's Eric Idle and Harry Potter's Hagrid together in a comedy about the English mob and religious orders sounds like a recipe for success. But sometimes too many cooks spoil the broth.
Gene expected another "Withnail and I." Ash wanted something different from "Sister Act," and Big D wanted a romantic montage that lasted longer and meant something. We didn't get any of those things.
But "Nuns on the Run" had its moments: a young Robbie Coltrane explaining the Holy Trinity, a few respectable puns, and some incredible surprise '90s boobs. We also got an overused joke about eyeglasses, an onslaught of tilted cameras and close-ups, a healthy dose of white male mediocrity, an incredibly English car chase, and surprisingly little running.
