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.

Bad in ways that are almost endearing...

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.

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.

Lacking any really sharp dialogue, the film just about goes the distance by juggling its characters in short, sketch-like scenes and inserting occasional musical montages.

When you look at it again, the old film was not only superior but rather more radical. This St Trinian's looks as if it is aiming at the lowest common denominator, and finding it too often.

The old St Trinian's movies with Alistair Sim weren't exactly comedy classics, but they look like gold next to this feeble, sloppily written caper.

no girl or boy over the age of 12 would be attracted by anything so puerile, while its UK certificate and occasionally risqu subject matter rule out under-12s.

Camp fun, and catnip for a demographic that British cinema doesn't often bother to please.
December 21, 2007
A monumentally naff film.

Colin Firth's humiliation is a thing of wonder. His entire career on screen and stage is beautifully sent up before our eyes.

that 'jolly hockey sticks' vibe feels outmoded with the only efforts to update the concept being shorter skirts and push-up bras.
