Product Description

St. Trinian’s, the infamous school for ‘young ladies,’ is in trouble. Despite being an old flame of its Headmistress (in a top-of-his-class comic performance by RUPERT EVERETT, My Best Friend’s Wedding), the new Education Minister is shaking things up and the school is facing financial ruin. But the students of St. Trinian’s aren’t going to give up without a fight. After all, they excel at chaos and attitude not chemistry and algebra…and that’s exactly what it’s going to take to beat the authorities before they close down their beloved school for good. Starring COLIN FIRTH (Mamma Mia!, Bridget Jones Diary), LENA HEADEY (“Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles,” Vacancy), RUSSELL BRAND (Forgetting Sarah Marshall) and CATERINA MURINO (Casino Royale). Also starring MISCHA BARTON (“The O.C.,” “The Beautiful Life”), TALULAH RILEY (The Boat That Rocked) and GEMMA ARTERTON (Quantum of Solace, Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time), with a cameo appearance by U.K. sensation GIRLS ALOUD.

For those who haven't enjoyed the Searle cartoons of the early 1950s film with Alastrair Sim, this movie is a delight. In this day of Will Farrell stupidity and dumbing down, it's a treat to watch something whose humour may be unsubtle but is fun. Rupert Everette steals the show in his 2 roles. I never thought anyone after Sim could do this but he does with style. I'm not going to spoil the surprises thriugh the film. I watched it on Virgin coming back from one of my London trip and am sure I annoyed other passenegers with my laughing. Who cares! Get the DVD because a sequel is about to be released and maybe this time whatever idiot is in charge of international distribution will make sure it gets a wide US release. Movies like this make it worth looking into a region-free DVD player!

This is not a high brow film. It is pure sugar - not recommended as a daily diet but great as a sweet snack. The original version and sequels were very risque for its day and this remake does a good job of trying to update the movie without going overboard.

An English school that accepts those girls that have been thrown out of every other school is not only in financial trouble but the government means to make an example of them too. Will all of the different factions (goths, sexpots, toughies, geeks, etc.) of St. Trinian band together to save the day?

Rupert Evertt does not do drag justice (which is amusing....) but all the characters are fun to watch. Colin Firth and Stephen Fry (brief cameo) were my favorites to watch. There are a lot of talented UK actors who appear in this movie and then there is a scene by Misha Barton.

This movie has more of a cult following then strong comedy to recommend it. I do not think it will appeal to the masses but it is silly fun.

This was recommended to me by an acquaitance from England, where apparently this is quite big, so I gave it a try.

This is about the adventures of a group of girls at a VERY unconventional school as seen through the eyes of a newcomer as they struggle to fight off not only foreclosure by the local bank. But instead of holding bake sales and other normal fund-raising activities, they decide to steal the famous painting "Girl With Pearl Earring" from the National Gallery and then sell it on the black market--like I said, this is a VERY unconventional school.

This film certainly shows off a different side of England than what people expect and for the most part it's good fun; my only real problem with it is that the girls suffer no real setbacks in their efforts, no "raising of the stakes", as it were. But like I said, it's all good fun.

This new St. Trinian's is not all bad, but as the title of this review says, I'm not sure it's worth spending the money to buy it. I did, because I don't rent movies anymore and I have all the other St. Trinian's movies (the original 1950's ones - Belles, Pure Hell, Blue Murder & Great Train Robbery) and this one does try to follow in the same vein as the originals - unfortunately, whilst sexual innuendo and nudity was shocking in the 50's, its pretty much par for the course now, so it doesn't really work.
Also, as much as I adore Rupert Everett, he just doesn't have it. He plays the dual roles of Miss Fritton, Headmistress of St. Trinian's girls school and her brother, a notorious art dealer. The school is in financial ruin and so the girls hatch a plan to steal a valuable piece of art and sell it to Mr Fritton, using a school quiz show as a cover.
Rupert is in fine form and his understated portrayal of Miss Fritton is good, but he just doesn't come off as feminine as Alastair Sim did in the original.
However, this is more than made up for by Colin Firth, who shows his comedic talent is more than equal to his romantic, playing the Education Minister out to shut the school down (and former lover of Miss Fritton). He has some great moments and, if you like British actors, do keep your eye out for Stephen Fry, who is great as the slightly drunken quizmaster of the school quiz.
I'll be honest with you - I laughed at this movie in places (mostly at Colin Firth and Stephen Fry) but for most of it I just sat and watched. Then I watched the deleted scenes and thought how much more sense the movie would have made if they hadn't cut them out.
If you want to while away a few hours watching 16 year old girls in tight skirts and/or goth makeup and 14 year old girls making alcohol in the school chemistry lab, then rent this movie. You'll have a pleasant time and you won't be bored.
But please don't buy it - not even for Colin Firth and Stephen Fry.

We are the Best. So screw the rest. We do as we damn well please! Until the end... St. Trinian's. Defenders of anarchy!

"St. Trinian's", the fictional girls boarding school created by English cartoonist Ronald Searle and spawned several books in the late 40's and early 50's, five comedy films from the early 1950's through the 1980's and now a reboot in 2007. The film which cost around £7 million to make, earned over £12 million in the UK but is among the top grossing independent British films made and one of the top selling DVD's in the UK in 2008.

The film had a brief run in the US in Oct. 2009 to help generate interest in the second film "St. Trinian's 2: The Legend of Fritton's Gold" which was released in theaters in the UK in Dec. 2009 and now a US DVD release of the first film in Jan. 2010.

In this reboot, St. Trinian's: School for Bad Girls features an all-star cast from the UK. Starring Rupert Everett (Stardust, Shakespeare in Love, Inspector Gadget), Colin Firth (Mamma Mia!, Bridget Jones's Diary), Lena Headey ("Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles," Vacancy), comedian Russell Brand (Forgetting Sarah Marshall) and Caterina Murino (Casino Royale). Also starring Mischa Barton ("The O.C.," "The Beautiful Life"), Talulah Riley (The Boat That Rocked) and Gemma Arterton (Quantum of Solace, Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time), with a cameo appearance by U.K. sensation GIRLS ALOUD.

The school which had been depicted as the girl school where the bad girls attend. In the original films, these female students were daughters of gangsters, crooks and shady bookmakers. But in the 2007 revision, the students are broken down to groups from the Chavs, the Posh Totty's, Geeks, Emo's and the first years.
