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..."
