St. Trinian's (2007)
Critic Consensus: Both naughtier and campier than Ronald Searle's original post war series, this St. Trinian's leans on high jinks instead of performances or witty dialogue.

Critic Reviews for St. Trinian's
The result is too competent to be a travesty and too ordinary to be interesting.
Firth looks like he's changing his mind about being in this movie WHILE the cameras are running.
Every scene is so frantic and desperate to make you laugh, to be clever, to be naughty and none of it worked.
Anyone with a fondness for the midcentury cartoons and films that inspired this scrappy comedy will appreciate the latest trip to the titular British boarding school.
A stunningly witless revival of the infamous British film series about a girls' boarding school.
Audience Reviews for St. Trinian's
School Can Be A Riot.
Good movie. Quite amusing at times, the girls looked suitably..... unsuitable! I think the storyline is brillant and I also love the pranks the kids pull, they are just so imaginative! Good acting from all the kids, Firth and Everett give the film a welcome lift. This British teenage comedy is funny and pretty entertaining so go see it.
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 a painting popularised by Scarlett Johansson might be the way out?
I've not seen the old St Trinian's films from the 50's, but good to see the brand get a modern day English make over. It's pretty much what you would expect, silly over the top characters and action. It's all lighthearted fun though with a good English cast. Good for a giggle.
Quite funny, although I liked the sequel better to this. Russell Brand was hilarious as ever though even for just a cameo appearance. Rupert Everett make a hysterical yet weird looking woman.
