Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that this sequel is even milder than the first movie with no violence or sexual content and just a few minor swear words. Conflict and intrigue are provided by a conspiracy of four well-meaning but rather dim nuns in their efforts to save a high school. They plot to pass off a Las Vegas singer as a music teacher and member of their religious order. The fraud they commit is thus shown to be "on the side of the angels."

Sexual Content

Not applicable.


Not applicable


Infrequent, mild: "hell," "ass," "crap," "Jesus Christ."

Social Behavior

Lots of positive messages about the importance of school and the value of full participation in life. Teens learn lessons about follow-through and commitment. Praiseworthy view of a successfully integrated inner city high school. In a relatively benign way, leading characters lie to their superiors to reach their goals. On two occasions, reckless driving is played for comedic effect.
