Critic Reviews for St Trinian's II: The Legend of Fritton's Gold

All Critics (20) | Top Critics (1)

Strident, clumsy and pointless.

Top Critic

It's another panto for 10-year-old girls, in which any given scene could - with only the addition of canned laughter - pass for something from children's television.

Sunday Times (UK)

The tone is broad, vulgar and exuberant and its hunt for lost treasure ends up inventively at the Globe Theatre. Schoolgirls and those who like ogling schoolgirls will enjoy it.

Observer (UK)

A film that flails about wildly in search of at least one half-decent joke. Tragically, the closest it gets is having a dog hump Colin Firth's leg.

Total Film

This sub-Carry On romp wearily coasts along on the lines of a rudimentary old-school farce rather than anything resembling wit.

Full Review… | January 5, 2010
Radio Times

This contrived sequel is an interminable, headache-inducing time-waster that never picks up any speed, weighed down as it is by far too many characters, and far too many slow-motion shots of the girls striding towards the camera.

Audience Reviews for St Trinian's II: The Legend of Fritton's Gold

A poor sequel that doesn't have a certain charm to the first. Even sillier story line this time round, shame given the talents of some of the cast at least.

Not bad, a good laugh at all! It's really hard to rate St Trinian's 2. On the one hand, it is lively, sharp, and amusing, but on the other hand, the plot is a little disappointing. I see the stereotypes of teenage schoolgirls are strong, which adds to the overall enjoyment of the film, and as you can expect with your typical British comedy film, there are the odd pieces of play-on-words humour which you have to be quick to catch up on. Good to see all the cast from the first film return in this sequel.

St Trinians 2 achieves the near-impossible, by being even cruder, messier and more amateurish than the first outing.
