Description

Medieval nuns Alessandra (Alison Brie), Fernanda (Aubrey Plaza), and Ginevra (Kate Micucci) lead a simple life in their convent. Their days are spent chafing at monastic routine, spying on one another, and berating the estate’s day laborer. After a particularly vicious insult session drives the peasant away, Father Tommasso (John C. Reilly) brings on new hired hand Massetto (Dave Franco), a virile young servant forced into hiding by his angry lord. Introduced to the sisters as a deaf-mute to discourage temptation, Massetto struggles to maintain his cover as the repressed nunnery erupts in a whirlwind of pansexual horniness, substance abuse, and wicked revelry. Loaded with comedic talent and written with an off-kilter, yet knowing touch, The Little Hours is an immensely charming romp. Writer/director Jeff Baena’s riotous follow-up to Sundance Film Festival favorites Life After Beth and Joshy has transferred the nervy comedic energy from his earlier work to the Middle Ages with hilarious results.

    The movie is hilarious in the most vulgar, raunchy and petty ways. Really is a Nuns Gone Wild. However, the following content bother some people, especially if they're not prepared for them: There is a coersive rape scenes with some characters are drunk and impaired, as well as just plain sexual harrassment of for both male and female characters. Also features some antisemitism, but presented within the historical context as a plot point, and isn't *necessarily* offensive.

    Terribly slow and unfunny. The jokes were lame brained and childish.
  • Horrible Movie.

    Just a bad, unfunny, inane movie start to finish. This movie had so much potential to be genuinely funny. It fell flat. This is a low budget, low quality production with awful "music". This is one of those movies I wish I could unwatch or get a lobotomy to forget about it. If you want to see a genuinely funny movie involving nuns, please watch "Nuns on the Run" instead.

    What a waste of time and money. There are just a few funny parts in this loser of a movie. You can see them all in the trailer! I wonder who wrote these good reviews? It is like we did not see the same movie!

    The movie is a very funny and relevant interpretation (by Jeff Baena) about certain segments of “The Decameron,” by renaissance humanist (philosopher novelist) Boccaccio. The loose or careless depiction of the story’s primary characters’ lack of respect for any religious order (given their very interesting family and social backgrounds) in my opinion, is unique to most satires. this film explores or reveals “who you are when no one else is looking” and used witty storytelling in an incredibly funny and raunchy way to explain the definition of “human character.” An absolute MUST WATCH!

    I feel like this is a love it or hate it film... I really loved it, being raised catholic and hearing about convents and nuns and the dedication to god, makes this hilarious... if you know anything about the church you will definitely get some really good laughs.
