  • Strident, clumsy and pointless.

  • Cheap, ramshackle entertainment that's nevertheless imbued with affection.

  • If there is a cinematic equivalent of a Christmas panto this season, it is surely St Trinian's 2, which is broad and ramshackle, cheap and gaudy.

  • The piratical-treasure story is totally hokum, but it's all peppy, whiz-bang stuff livened up no end by Talulah Riley's fetching turn as Head Girl.

  • A cavalcade of schoolgirls filled out the press screening of this movie, and very welcome to it they were.

    Dec 18, 2009 | Rating: 1/5 | Full Review…
  • Judging by the first of the new St Trinian's films, we shouldn't have expected more than rudimentary farce from the second.

    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 <i>St Trinian's 2</i>. 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.

    Roxy: Don't you think this whole idea is a wee bit unfeasible? Annabelle Fritton: This is St. Trinian's. We don't know the meaning of the word "unfeasible". Chelsea: That's true. Lucy: Hah! In your face! In your face! Face of a supermodel. Brain of a super noodle. Chelsea: Lucy! Do you really think I look like a supermodel? Celia: I think I have, like, an idea. <div style="width:594px;"><a href="http://www.flixster.com/photos/st-trinians-2-the-legend-of-frittons-gold-2009-st-trinians-the-legend-of-frittons-gold-11953317"><img src="http://content7.flixster.com/photo/11/95/33/11953317_gal.jpg" border="0"/></a><div style="text-align:center;font-size:10px;"><a href="http://www.flixster.com">Flixster</a> - Share Movies</div></div> The gang is back and now with a 420 years old Treasure mystery The Legend of Fritton's Gold. This movie was not as good as the first one but it actually kept much of its charm by having almost the whole cast again here. Having liked the first St. Trinian's movie, I was looking forward to see this sequel. However, it was somewhat of a disappointment compared to the first movie but still entertaining. The girls from St. Trinians are back! This time they get a lead on a mythical treasure that an ancestor to Annabelle and Camilla stole and hid. But they need to get the two rings that together hold the answer to where the treasure is hidden. This is a perfect job for the girls at St. Trinians. And even better that the competition is a woman hating secret society headed by an heir to the captain that got robbed in the first place. You have the hilarious headmistress here again and of course the colorful and unique schoolgirls that we all know and love from the first movie. And this was what was working well for the movie. With some minor changes in the hierarchy this time around, Talulah Riley's character is head girl while Colin Firth's character starts off as a depressed drunkard. There are a lot of over-caricatured stereotypical archetypes in the movie, from the geeks to the emos and everything in between. I suspect that the budget was bigger for this one, but it was wasted off premises. The charm is "the school" in the broadest sense, and this was lost in a bizarre plot focusing on lost pirate treasure. No St Trinians story is complete without "Flash", yet he is missing. David Tennant is lost in the strangely written role of Lord Pomfrey, Rupert Everett and Colin Firth reprise their roles in the first film, but to much less effect. St Trinians 2 is nice to look at, it isn't high art, but the buildings are imposing and it was nice to see London again. The music is delightful, and the direction is decent. Apart from Harding and Arterton to a lesser degree, the other performances are fine. Rupert Everett is a lot of fun to watch, while Colin Firth has more to do this time around and is wonderful. Talulah Riley gives a nice account of herself as well, as does Toby Jones, while David Tennant makes for an excellent if somewhat hammy villain of the piece. Banned. It is not just the directors' background notes that are girlie twaddle. The Banned are mostly young singers who need to have skills of actors, they are prominent in the story. It can enhance the fun to follow their roles and get to recognize them in the non-music parts, but to forget that their background notes are twaddle is to know something about just why Banned. They appear to be an effective school age-ish front for Girl's Aloud music. Also the movie was full of nice sets, costumes and props. The attention to detail in the movie was really cool. So hats off to those in charge of that. "St. Trinians 2: The Legend of Frittons Gold" is labeled as comedy, but this is not the type of comedy that will make you roll around on the floor laughing. The humor in the movie is fast and witty, and you should be familiar with British slang and word-play to fully catch some of the lines here. Retreading the same ground as the previous film did, with less memorable characters, it quickly becomes a little bit stale in places but it's far from a complete travesty and there's still a fair bit of fun to be had with those anarchic schoolgirls. By the way this is no masterpiece but it was at least watchable. It keeps reasonably to the somewhat chaotic tone of the first film, and while the plot was a little busy in places and there were moments of stale laughs or acting, but I actually enjoyed it. <div style="width:594px;"><a href="http://www.flixster.com/photos/st-trinians-2-the-legend-of-frittons-gold-2009-st-trinians-the-legend-of-frittons-gold-11953316"><img src="http://content6.flixster.com/photo/11/95/33/11953316_gal.jpg" border="0"/></a><div style="text-align:center;font-size:10px;"><a href="http://www.flixster.com">Flixster</a> - Share Movies</div></div> The rebellious girls at St. Trinian's are back in this sequel to the smash hit U.K. comedy from writers Piers Ashworth and Nick Moorcroft.

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