Trivia

The treasure seen in the trailer consists of "gold" coins. These are actually Bulgarian currency coins of 1 and 2 stotinki (cents) made of brass-plated steel, not gold. See more »

Goofs

At the beginning of the film the sailors are heard singing "Fifteen men on a dead man's chest / Yo ho ho and a bottle of rum!" This is not a genuine sea shanty but was created by Robert Louis Stevenson for the novel "Treasure Island", published in 1883, so the sailors would not know it. See more »

Quotes

Camilla: Some women, Annabelle, are born great: Cleopatra, the queen, me. Some become great, like Mother Teresa or Lady Gaga. Others have greatness thrust upon them, like Monica Lewinsky.

Not bad; a good laugh
23 December 2009 | by (UK) – See all my reviews

It's really hard to rate St Trinian's 2. On the one hand, it is lively, sharp, and amusing, but on the other hand, the plot is a little disappointing. The film itself borders on the 'absolutely surreal' (mind you, it's a bit ironic to claim this against St Trinian's school, eh??), which somehow, I thought, made it a bit awkward to watch.

As ever, the stereotypes of teenage schoolgirls is strong, which adds to the overall enjoyment of the film, and as you can expect with your typical British comedy film, there are the odd pieces of play-on-words humour which you have to be quick to catch up on. Also watch out for references to famous films or other popular-culture references (you'll understand what I mean when you watch it).

(And before you ask: It's generally clean humour. No toilet humour/fart jokes.)

Thus, I give this a rating of 6/10, mainly because of its overall cleverness and entertainment value. Would I recommend it? Yes I would; it's about time a comedy film had real humour in it, even if it is masked in a very bizarre plot.
