Nuns On The Run

Following in the great Carry On... tradition with a bit of Monty Python thrown in for good measure, Nuns On The Run is a classic slice of slapstick comedy starring Eric Idle and Robbie Coltrane.

Brian and Charlie work for a gangster. When the boss learns they want to "leave", he sets them up to be killed, after they help rob the local Triads of their drug dealing profits. Brian and Charlie decide to steal the money for themselves, but when their escape doesn't go to plan, they have to seek refuge in a nuns' teacher training school. Disguised as nuns, Brian and Charlie have to avoid their boss, Triads, police and Brian's girlfriend. There's also the problem of them being men disguised as nuns in an all women institution.
