Set in the Middle Ages, Massetto flees the home of his master after getting caught sleeping with the mistress of the home. He is taken in by Father Tommasso under the condition that he pretends to be deaf and mute. Massetto unknowingly ends up as the handyman in the small but overwhelmingly sinful convent. We have foul mouthed Sister Alessandra who was sent to the convent while her father saved enough money for her dowry so she can marry but that seems unlikely to happen since he’s broke. Sister Ginevra who is a tattletaling, Jewish lesbian. Sister Fernanda who is a secretly a witch. Sister Maria who is sleeping with Father Tommasso. And of course, we can’t forget that Father Tommasso is a drunk. Massetto might have been better on the run, honestly. Everything falls apart when there is a surprise visit from the bishop and all of their secrets are exposed.

Rating: A-

Is it worth watching: Definitely. I’m surprised that this movie has such low ratings on IMDB. It has a great cast – some of my absolute favorite actors, in fact. It’s absolutely ridiculous, fun, and shouldn’t be taken too seriously.

Once upon a time, Sharon was invited to attend a comic convention. She had always wanted to go to a comic-con but thought it was out of her reach. While at this convention, she met Richard who asked her if she could write. She scoffed. Of course she was capable of writing. But then he clarified and asked if she would be willing to a be a writer for TBK Magazine. She agreed. Little did she know that she was signing on to become a podcaster, assistant editor of the magazine, Vice President of a publishing company, best mensch, and a sister. Her whole world would expand for the better after that trip in 2016. She would be forever grateful. The magazine would be her safe haven and the staff would become a part of her family. And still to this day, Richard has not fulfilled his promise of singing the cow song to Sharon.   Sharon was born in mid 1980’s and raised in Northeastern Arkansas. She has been married to her childhood sweetheart, Jesse, since 2004. They have two amazing sons. Outside of her official TBK responsibilities, she works as a nurse.   She loves theater, costumes, cosplay, and Halloween. She is addicted to Chapstick and will ALWAYS have at least one with her at all times. She despises spiral staircase, escalators, and people that do not understand how four way stops work.
