Idle, Coltrane and Coduri make this film.
Let's face it, this movie looks awful. Stupid title, stupid sounding premise, it really has nothing going for it. We want it to be horrible, we want it to be stupid. But you know what? It isn't. Nuns on the Run is quirky, original, and oddly touching. Idle and Coltrane are a perfect comic pair and, although they are criminals, we admire them as they try to break free from their life of crime. Coduri is also very clever as Brian's extremely near-sighted but kind Catholic girlfriend. The film is well done with music that's rarely out of place and often makes a scene. Basically, this film deserves a lot more credit than it's given. It's a charming and quite funny look at the Catholic church and criminals. Because, as Idle says in the film, 'If the church isn't selling anything then how did it become so rich?' If you're the type that protested Monty Python's Life of Brian because of religious reasons, then don't see this. Otherwise, this is a movie that will give you a good time.Was this review helpful?
