During scenes in the school by the stairs there is a white marble bust of a female head. It is a copy of Miss Fritton as played by Alastair Sim in the original black & white St. Trinians films. See more »
When the girls are at the school looking for the ring, the headmaster goes into his office and the painting on the wall is in perfect condition while all the girls rush out of the office secretly. Then, when they are in the van heading back to St. Trinian's, it shows that they ripped the painting to get the ring. See more »
There's no reason to be scared of death. 'Cause death is, you know, like life, but all of the crap gets taken out. Like poverty and fascism and Miley Cyrus.

Having liked the first St. Trinian's movie, I was looking forward to see this sequel. However, it was somewhat of a disappointment compared to the first movie.
You have the hilarious headmistress here again and of course the colorful and unique schoolgirls that we all know and love from the first movie. And this was what was working well for the movie. There is a lot of over-caricatured stereotypical archetypes in the movie, from the geeks to the emos and everything in between.
The story was in itself nice enough, having a good plot, but unfortunately it was delivered in a very chaotic and disorganized manner. It seemed like the producer wanted too much to be happening in every single shot. And the end result turned out to be confusing in sorts and very disharmonious. I, for one, didn't like the way this movie turned out. Had they cut down on it and simplified it, it would have worked so much better.
Also the movie was full of nice sets, costumes and props.The attention to detail in the movie was really cool. So hats off to those in charge of that.
"St. Trinians 2: The Legend of Frittons Gold" is labeled as comedy, but this is not the type of comedy that will make you roll around on the floor laughing. The humor in the movie is fast and witty, and you should be familiar with British slang and word-play to fully catch some of the lines here. And I am sure that teenagers will love this movie and take it to heart.
