Storyline

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.

Goofs

When the girls are overlooking the river from outside the Globe theater, watching Lord Pomfrey escaping in his launch, Celia licks her finger and holds it up (to determine wind speed/direction) but when they steal Drakes ship and it's moving down the river, none of the sails are unfurled.

Annabelle Fritton: Treasure Hunter, Come for naught, It seems your dreams have fallen short.
Chelsea: For pirate though I may have been, I ventured for a change of scene.
Chelsea: Resolving to change my ways, From sailing seas to mounting plays.
Lucy: Writing many in this room, With Shakespeare as my on-De-ploom.
Lucy: In you of gold I humbly pray, You'll kindly take my final play.

Not bad; a good laugh
23 December 2009 | by A-Clockwork-BobbinSee 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.
