Where Angels Go, Trouble Follows

Overview

Overview

Having scored big in 1966 with The Trouble With Angels, Columbia Pictures went back for a second bite of the apple with Where Angels Go, Trouble Follows. But it's two years later, and the world of Catholic education depicted in the first movie is confronting a raft of changes on all sides, from within and without. And Mother Simplicia (Rosalind Russell) not only has a new generation of students headed for graduation, but a young, progressive nun, Sister George (Stella Stevens), with whom to lock horns. And if top hell-raisers Marvel Ann (Barbara Hunter) and Rosabelle (Susan Saint James) can't cause her enough headaches to keep her busy, then Sister George will come up with something to get under her skin. The girls' adventures take them cross-country to a Catholic-themed peace rally, on the way to which they encounter mechanical problems with their bus, leading to an overnight stay at a Catholic boys' school and an encounter with some surly bikers; an interlude at a ranch owned by a millionaire (Robert Taylor), and a gradual loosening of the attitudes by the tradition-bound Mother Simplicia.

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide - Bruce Eder
Where Angels Go, Trouble Follows is a sequel to The Trouble With Angels, and as such is not bad -- it's just not as good, but it is different, and offers just enough appeal to resonate better with modern viewers, even if it isn't as good a movie. For starters, there's no real unity to the story in the manner of the earlier film -- the plot sprawls across the American continent and never affords the viewer a chance to focus in on the larger story, concerning change within and around the Catholic church. Between the episodic story -- which is extremely entertaining for its topical references, which were already dated a year or two after the film's release -- and the all-star supporting cast (including Robert Taylor, Van Johnson, Arthur Godfrey, and Milton Berle), the movie is a thoroughly entertaining gem without really being terribly good. By whatever means it does manage to entertain, however, Where Angels Go, Trouble Follows does succeed, and in some areas where its more serious and focused predecessor doesn't -- there's nothing to be taken too seriously that gets in front of the camera for very long, and the sheer wholesomeness of the film's tone (and origins) tells even first-time viewers that all will turn out right. Not too many movies outside of the Disney orbit can still trade in that kind of message successfully, but this one does, for all of its flaws.

    A Great Movie A Classic

    Loved this movie when I saw it as a child and still love it to this day. Bought it when it came out on VHS and then again on DVD. Great perfomances by Rosaline Russell as Mother Superior, Stella Stevens as the hip nun Sister George the dragonslayer. Mary Wickes as the bus driving nun the cast goes on and on. I recommend this for anyone of any age.

    Cute Movie! Disappointing DVD!

    Okay, the first movie is definitely better but I also liked this sequel and found it cute and entertaining. It would have been nice if Hayley Mills had been in this movie playing the young progressive nun but Stella Stevens was good and I also thought that Rosalind Russell, and Susain Saint James were very good. The only complaint I have is with the DVD, it is pan and scan only and I think it would have been nice if they had also released a widescreen DVD and hopefully someday they will do that!

    Falls into the Sequel trap...

    At first, I did not plan on watching this film, but I happened upon on it on TCM as I was flipping through the channels. I had heard of this movie after trying to find a DVD version of the prequel, The Trouble With Angels, as it came up in the search query. Anyways, I started watching it on TCM, but it was already midway, so I didn't really understand it. Either way, I thought that The Trouble With Angels had a better story to it and had a more whimsical yet touching tone. Besides, Sister George is exactly the type of nun that has caused the new non-habit wearing nun. It may not mean much to some, but it's the start of a less faithful nun...anyways, I would rate the prequel better than this subpar sequel!

    Simply wonderful!

    This movie is one of the funniest movies out there. Although it was made in the late 1960s, most of this issues it discusses can be related to today. I love it and recommend it to anyone who needs a good laugh and wants to relive their years of schooling and best friends.
