First, for an Elvis movie, this is pretty good. Decent character development, and the plot is ok. The acting is good, MTM of course was always a great actress, but even Elvis did good here. When I was a teen I would have given this movie five stars; but now that I have matured, and grown in Faith, I SEE the message contained in the movie, which basically made a mockery of nuns, disrespecting the wearing of the habit as being undesirable, made it seem like renouncing one;s solemn vows to play street activist is a good and moral choice, while it is REALLY mortally sinful, and ending with the two old ladies wishing for the old days "Where they didn't have to think: was incredibly spiteful ugly and dishonest evaluation of the glorious Latin Tridentine Mass. It is actually an anti-Catholic movie, meant to make the watering down of the Faith seem alright. Subtle, not overt anti-Catholicism. Meant to woo one, not hit over the head with a sledge hammer. A kind of "cultrual jihad" if you will. So, good acting and decent plot aside, watch it with your eyes wide open, and do not get suckered into the anti-Catholic sentiment in the movie.
