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.

Trivia

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 »

Goofs

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 »

A ridiculous drivel
12 May 2010 | by Gordon-11See all my reviews

This film is about a bunch of delinquent school girls hunting for the lost treasure of pirate Fritton 420 years ago.

The first "St Trinian's" was light hearted entertainment, but the same cannot be said of "St Trinian's 2: The Legend of Fritton's Gold". It tries too hard to parody other films, such as "Home Alone" and "The Exorcist", that it becomes a disjointed and senseless wreck. As the film progresses it becomes more ridiculous and more unfunny. Despite the good portrayals of various characters with distinct personalities, the film fails to impress.

I normally enjoy comedies, and thought the first "St Trinian's" was good entertainment. It's a pity that "St Trinian's 2: The Legend of Fritton's Gold" is a ridiculous drivel.
