Nuns On The Run is a one-joke movie which takes its central premise and, quite frankly, goes on the run with it. Following a bungled heist, criminal pair Eric Idle & Robbie Coltrane hide from the police in a convent, disguised as a pair of nuns.
It has a few amusing moments, but nothing particularly clever or memorable. 
4/10
