Entertainment Reviews:

New York Times - 03/16/1990
"...There are no whoopee cushions in NUNS ON THE RUN, but there are the next best things for a movie: [Idle and Coltrane]....Very funny..."
Los Angeles Times - 03/16/1990
"...Idle and Coltrane are masters of caricature....They generate a certain amount of laughter just waddling or tip-toeing across the screen. Casting them together is a sort of coup..."

Product Description:

A pair of petty crooks who steal a million pounds from their gangster employer, are forced to hide out in a convent - disguised as nuns. But they are not prepared for the characters they find there.

Plot Synopsis:

After an ill-fated bank robbery, a couple of petty criminals end up with two suitcases of stolen cash and an assortment of angry thugs -- including their boss, a vicious London mobster -- on their tails. They decide to hide out in a convent school disguised as nuns -- and they do so with the blessing of one very practical and hard-nosed Sister Superior who hopes to refill the convent's shrunken coffers with some of the cash from their suitcases.
