Fans of British comedy will get a great kick out of this hilarious caper, especially those who love Monty Python.  and  play two goons who decide to leave their mob boss and take off with the spoils of their last robbery. When their employer learns of this and tries to have them killed, the two bumbling goofballs have to hide out in a convent for training nuns in order to save their skins. Naturally, the slapstick comedy that arises from their donning habits and pretending to be chaste women is full of plenty of laughs, though it lacks the sophistication that one comes to expect from the Britcoms. Janet Suzman (Nicholas and Alexandra) appears in a supporting role.
