After wealthy philanthropist Piers Pomfrey has expressed an unusual interest in a ring found by her niece Annabelle, Miss Fritton explains that she is descended from a pirate who, in 1598, stole treasure from another pirate: Pomfrey's ancestor. The location of the treasure is to be found when the ring and its double are put together. Felonious ex-pupil Kelly and Miss Fritton's former lover Geoffrey are brought in to help the school steal the second ring from the evil Pomfrey's misogynistic secret society, leading to a showdown at the Globe Theater, and an amazing revelation as to the identity of pirate Captain Fritton, as well as that of William Shakespeare.

The engraving on the ring supposedly shows the coordinates of the treasure according to currently used geographic coordinate system, which is based on a longitude of the Greenwich Meridian. It was only established first by Sir George Airy in 1851, much later than events depicted in the story of the treasure. See more »

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.
