* EverybodyLives: For all the drama that came along the way for all the characters, the film ends in a rather hopeful note.


Added DiffLines:

* DrivingADesk: Sister Ann on the scooter and later, when they ride on their jeep.

NeedsWikiMagicLove. Compare ''Film/SisterAct'' if you want a movie with lots of music that also involves nuns but [[NunsAreFunny funnier and quirkier]].

Added DiffLines:

* TookALevelInBadass: A pretty small one. Sister Ann is shocked that Nicole's father would struck her own daughter. So what did she do? She ''pins'' the man on the wall (who is twice her height) and lectures that there's a better way to settle it. Predictably, she gets thrown out but still.

* TheHedonist: Nichole which unfortunately, leads her to constantly leaving her brother alone or taking him to unsafe places.
** In the near end, she admits this a bit when she stated that the reason that she liked going out was because she just wanted to have fun. Though it sounded selfish, the way she delivered it...[[MoodWhiplash doesn't sound like]] [[BrokenBird it came from a]] HardDrinkingPartyGirl.

* TheHedonist: Nichole which unfortunately, leads CreatorBreakdown: In-universe. She becomes confused between her to constantly leaving her brother alone or taking him to unsafe places.
** In the near end, she admits this a bit
musical success and Robert's personal interest in her. It got worse [[spoiler: when she stated Dominic gets hit by a vehicle]] and later that the reason that night, she liked going out was because she just wanted 'couldn't pray', meaning unable to have fun. Though it sounded selfish, the way she delivered it...[[MoodWhiplash doesn't sound like]] [[BrokenBird it came from a]] HardDrinkingPartyGirl.sing and play her guitar.


Added DiffLines:

* InfantImmortality
* IWantMyBelovedToBeHappy: Father Clementi tries to implant this to Robert who constantly convinces Sister Ann (who was his former classmate and apparently, had a bit of relationship with her) to leave the convent and carry on her musical career and become a star.
* MagicalNegro: Sister Mary (who is the only black character to be seen for most of the film). Especially when she told a woman who had just fainted while dancing, was planning to have an abortion and recalled that she was to have the same fate (as a baby) and was thankful that they failed. [[WhatHappenedToTheMouse Whether it helped isn't made sure]].
* MissingMom: Nicole and Dominic's mother.


Added DiffLines:

** Any background score has borrowed some tunes from the real Singing Nun's songs.
* SexyPriest: Father Clementi. Not that it's mentioned or bragged about in-universe, but the man is pretty easy on the eyes and he is a ''carpenter''.
* SternNun: Sister Cluny. Averted for the Mother who is much more open.
** Sister Ann herself is this too though less obvious. She's quite nosy at first, [[spoiler: especially when confronting to Nicole about the provocative photographs of herself she found in her closet which she uses to make money]] but then again, she is just starting. In fact, she seemed to be ''way'' to eager to help.

* BasedOnABigLie: In contrast to the perfection of the movie, the real Jeanine Deckers was a very conflicted personality who did not like the attention of the world and definitely did not hold an attraction to a male record producer as shown in the film. In fact, she left the order in 1965, accompanied by her lover, Annie Pescher, whom she stayed with until their mutual suicide pact in 1985.

A [[TheSixties 1966]] American semi-biographical film about the life of Jeanine Deckers (aka Sur Sourire ''lit. Sister Smile''/"The Singing Nun" in the West), a nun who recorded the chart-topping hit song, [[OneHitWonder "Dominique"]]. Debbie Reynolds stars in the title role as the nun named Sister Ann[[labelnote:*]]''not'' the real Singing Nun's name[[/labelnote]]. Ed Sullivan himself makes an appearance to play in the supposedly similar situation where the Singing Nun appears on [[EdSullivanShow his show]]. Original songs by The Singing Nun were translated into English and were written by Randy Sparks.
