Storyline

St Trinians proudly continues to represent the unacceptable face of British education. When the new Minister of Education announces he will personally sort the place out he doesn't realise either the enormity of the task or that the headmistress is an old flame. The school is anyway threatened with closure by their bank; with the staff clearly a waste of space the girls realise the responsibility to save the day falls on them. Perhaps ripping off the girl with the pearl earring (a painting by Johannes Vermeer) might be the way out? Written by Jeremy Perkins {J-26}

Kelly: We're facing the biggest crisis of our lives and you're behaving like bloody children. If this place closes down, we have to go to other schools. And by that I mean *normal* schools.

A lot better then I expected!
3 January 2008 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

When I first heard about the new St.Trinians film, I found it rather stupid sounding. With a cast which sadly boasted Mischa Barton and Girls Alouds, it boasted watery, lame humour film from every angle. But after seeing it, it was clear to me that nothing couldn't be further from the truth, as this product was brilliant, with laugh-out-loud moments all around and a brilliant cast full of the creme-de-la-creme of British actors(which barely had any Mischa Barton in it at all).

The casting of Rupert Everett as Miss Fritton was brilliant, because he has such brilliant comic timing and devotion to the character is great. The ever hilarious Russell Brand is a great Flash Harry: very much a geezer and just genuinely brilliant.

The casting of the girl's were spot-on, as all actress committed to their assigned groups (such as the posh totties, chavs, emos, etc) very well. One of the most underused actresses was Juno Temple, who people may recognise from "Notes on a Scandal" and "Atonement", playing the much more humorous character of a stoner.

Overall, the film is brilliant. If you're a fan of the first films,maybe this won't be the film for you. But if you haven't watched St. Trinian's films before or think the old films are dated rubbish, then this perfect for you! Go and see it!
