'The View' Stages 'Sister Act' Reunion Show on Film's 25th Anniversary

'The View' Stages 'Sister Act' Reunion Show on Film's 25th Anniversary”

Whoopi Goldberg hosted a 25th anniversary celebration with the cast of "Sister Act", which became a huge box office success and fan favorite after hitting theaters in May 1992.

Kathy Najimy and Wendy Makkena, aka Sister Mary Patrick and Sister Mary Robert, joined Goldberg on her daytime talk show "The View" for the reunion special, and reminisced about their time on set and the hijinks they got up to with their costumes (including putting porn on their hotel TV before calling room service up).

Goldberg, who played Deloris Van Cartier, the lounge singer who had to go into hiding in a convent after witnessing a murder, said the role was originally supposed to go to Bette Midler. Goldberg revealed that she did not intend to sing in the movie, but was later talked into it and Najimy said that her amusing "opera voice" got her the role after auditioning a few times.

Whoopi Goldberg backs medical pot for menstrual cramps in New York.

Whoopi even received a pre-recorded message from another co-star, British acting icon Dame Maggie Smith, who expressed her disappointment at missing out on the gathering.

What better way to celebrate a film's milestone anniversary than with an epic reunion?

'I had no intention of singing, ' she recalled, before adding 'And then Marc said, 'Oh, you're singing, you'll be fine'.

'I feel I must be the oldest nun left - every single nun was wonderful. I have such fond memories of when we did those crazy, crazy, crazy films, ' she jokes.

She added: 'We laughed and laughed and laughed'. "I send you lots of love and I wish I were with you".

This is the first official reunion that the cast has had since the original movies back in the early and mid 1990s.
