when I saw what the one Catholic news source review said, "truly trash" I knew I had to see it. Nuns behaving badly ,how could you not love it? and Molly Shannon as mother superior, she's not in enough big screen comedies.
The Little Hours is an enjoyable comedy that wears a little too thin by the time it’s over.
A comedy in both the current and the original senses of the word, Little Hours earns its laughs before ensuring a happy end.
On paper, The Little Hours sounds like a combative anti-religious tract, but Baena’s less interested in mocking the church than in basking in the gulf between humanity’s lofty aspirations and its baser instincts.
