When their beloved school is threatened with closure should the powers that be fail to raise the proper funds, the girls scheme to steal a priceless painting and use the profits to pull St. Trinian's out of the black.
I used up all of my 'f' words in my 'review' of Grown Ups. So I'm kind of left high and dry now. Using the 'c' word against a bunch of schoolgirls wouldn't look too cool would it?
Here's the thing with St. Trinian's, it's a reboot of a classic British film, I don't know if it's any good I've never seen it but it's always on TV and it's from Ealing. Well I'm pretty sure that this is a bad film, the acting isn't great, the story is ridiculous and for a kids film it's very risqué but I surprisingly enjoyed it. St. Trinian's is about a school for girls that is just out of control. The girls are crazy and the headmistress is ok with these girls trashing the place, she encourages outrageous things. Well Colin Firth has had enough of it and wants to close the place down and with Miss Fritton (the headmistress) getting…
Russel Brand, I respectfully request you go DIE IN A HOLE FROM AN OVERDOSE OF YOUR OWN ANNOYINGNESS.
An awful, awful film reminiscent of a terrible school play. I fail to understand what power or force prevented me from turning off this drivel. Not even Everet's massive man chin could save this film. Calling this a comedy flags up some kind of trade description act I'm sure. Miss this.
An attractive cast of school girls with Russel brand trying to pull off a heist, guilty pleasure.
This is not a good film. Yet I find myself returning to it over and over. Maybe it's all the attractive ladies in school uniforms. Or the ridiculously great British cast. Whatever it is, I like it.
Fairly trite story that could have been so much better
I think this movie could have been fun with a different script. As it stands, it's full of cliches and weirdly childish sensibilities: it plays like an over the top kid's movie in spite of having some adult-oriented jokes that would suggest it isn't for kids.
Poor acting, poor script, that bell end Russell Brand, poor pacing, awful bloody soundtrack. Strangely enjoyable. Yikes.
This review reportedly contains spoilers. I can handle the truth.
Definitely worth a viewing! The story is solid, the girls running wild at the school are a delight to watch, and the British-Irish pop girl group Girls Aloud (love that group!) makes a cameo appearance as the school band in the film and are responsible for the title track, "Theme of St. Trinians"
I've watched St. Trinian's dozens of times and it never gets old. From battling a rival school in a rough (some would say unsportsmanlike) game of field hockey to saving their school from bankruptcy by stealing a valuable painting, then fencing it, this film is entertaining through and through.
Bought this cheap in a charity shop because I hadn't seen it in a while, still just as fun!
Silly fun with many recognisable faces.
I happened to catch a couple of minutes of St. Trinian's when I was flicking through the TV a couple of weeks ago, and I thought it looked interesting enough to warrant a fair crack. Turns out it was mildly okay. I was surprised that Paloma Faith was somewhat tolerable, but I still don't really see the appeal of Gemma Arterton. Rest of the cast are all alright - personally would have liked to have seen more of Lena Heady and Juno Temple.
haha i havent seen a new movie in a month im going crazy :)
A daft but extremely funny movie once you go into it knowing it's gonna be daft. Gemma Arterton is quite the dish in this. A bit of a who's who of British talent.
I FUCKING LOVE COLOURING
