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 »
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 »
Treasure Hunter, Come for naught, It seems your dreams have fallen short.
For pirate though I may have been, I ventured for a change of scene.
Resolving to change my ways, From sailing seas to mounting plays.
Writing many in this room, With Shakespeare as my on-De-ploom.
In you of gold I humbly pray, You'll kindly take my final play.
Anound did you find it hard, to credit that I was the bard.
The timely truth may now unfold, That all the while I was... a girl.

This is an absolute Christmas cracker. I think it is slicker and more polished than the first film, and Rupert Everett is even better this time around as the eponymous Miss Fritton. It is camp, witty and outrageous and full of classic one liners. The new girls are hilarious and Tamsin Edgerton who played Chelsea has proved that her future career lies in comedy. Yes It's movie/panto for the masses, but that's half of its charm. At a time when England is in the grip of mass unemployment and recession, this is the kind of family comedy that everyone can enjoy. I cannot believe all of the bad reviews. That said, the vast majority of them are written by men aged 35-60. Go figure! At least the filmmakers know their target audience, unlike the people who's job it is to criticise. I'm sure it will be as successful as the first film. Top marks class. No detention for anyone.
