The actors are left grasping for laughs as the script tries to figure out just what it wants to be.

... this Animal House of private girls schools is a motley misfit of a misfit comedy that offers outrageous antics in place of actual humor.

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.

St. Trinian's is a painless onslaught of dumb gags, gratuitous cheesecake, random movie allusions, and general nonsense, but the classy cast (which includes Gemma Arterton, Toby Jones, and Stephen Fry) helps earn it a passing grade.

I suspect this boorish, crude, often vulgar British comedy lost a great deal of its jolly credence whilst crossing the Atlantic.

A tame, glittery spoof without a brain in its head or a character worth caring about.

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.

St. Trinian's is a hoot, but it's thrown-together, haphazard feel will only grate on the sensibilities of cineastes or aesthetic and moral prudes bent on decrying "yoof" culture -- although it's only moderately rude by contemporary standards.

Sadly, the level of deviance hovers around iCarly levels, as does the sophistication of the humor.

Bad in ways that are almost endearing...
October 8, 2009
Quirky British boarding-school comedy has iffy messages.

It's an impressive bit of slumming by some name actors revisiting a childhood favorite -- a bit as if Hollywood had somehow convinced William Hurt to help restart Lost in Space, or Robert De Niro to do a Bullwinkle movie. Oh, wait.

Sadly, the movie is a zoo.
October 8, 2009
indifferent to storytelling, craft and, dare I mention, fresh ideas

With the right attitude this cheerfully calculated effort to update the old girl for a tween market can be enjoyed in all its endearing awfulness, as a loony High School Musical with posher accents and a lot more going on upstairs.

Rupert Everett also expertly mangles the plum role once inhabited by Alastair Sim.
