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}

Bursar: OK girls, let's play clean. No biting, no scratching... kicking, no gouging, no kickboxing, no punching, no slapping, no spitting... uh... no gouging! And no no-regulation equipment. James, this is with you!

Wickedly brilliant Brit flick!
16 December 2007 | by fab-46See all my reviews

I have just returned from a preview screening of Ealing Studio's new film- a continuation of the St. Trinian's franchise which last had an outing in the 1960s, and I have to say it is the most fun i've had in a cinema for AGES!

Re-inventing the twee originals St. Trinian's has been brought into the modern day with a bang! With Goths, Emos, Posh Tottie, Chavs and Geeks galore they don't miss anything out! Right from the start as one of the main girls is driven upto the school for the first time past a car in flames you know you're going to be in for a riot! The production design was brilliant- there was so much to look at and laugh at- it must have taken days to dress each set!

Rupert Everett and Colin Firth make a brilliant team- they bounce off each other and give the film a great heart- Rupert in drag is a sight to see- I wonder if Camilla PB has seen it yet- because he's got her down brilliantly! Russell Brand really shows that he can act and deliver other people's funny lines- you really look forward to him cropping up throughout the film.

The girls are brilliant- they all hit their laughs and are never too over the top. Gemma Atherton is superb as is Paloma (?) who plays one of the Emos.

All in all- I laughed from start to finish- it's a great film for the family this Christmas that is 10x funnier than the disappointing Enchanted that really wasn't the family film of the decade as Disney would like us to believe. Go and see it- if u've got kids they'll definitely thank you for it- or if not just go and see it to escape the Christmas shopping, families and wrapping paper this weekend! You won't be disappointed!

Best British film since the Full Monty!
