Yup. Father Mulcahy was the ’70s avatar of an out-to-lunch religious establishment.

Yes. Just for the moment Brooks belts, ”Send in the nuns!”

Holy (wo)man: Whoopi Goldberg
FUNNY AS HELL?
Let’s just say it’s up there with Nuns on the Run…so, no.

Watching the patron saint of transgression play a cardinal? Damn straight.
