From Amazon.co.uk

To some extent, the team behind the revival of St. Trinian’s were on a bit of a hiding to nothing. The old films, contextualised by a far different age, were knockabout, energetic, yet innocent comedies about the antics of a boisterous girls’ school and its inhabitants. Surprisingly though, the remake--again inspired by the Ronald Searle cartoons--manages to sidestep the bulk of the obstacles in its path, and proves itself as a likeable, entertaining comedy.

The plot of St. Trinian’s is as paper-thin as you’d expect, and serves merely as a platform for the anarchic actions of the cast of characters (some hokum about stealing a picture and saving the school). And a mischievous lot they prove to be: while they don’t quite live up to the memories of the generation of St. Trinian’s students before them, the primarily young cast still attack their roles with tremendous, and infectious, gusto.

And leading the cast is Rupert Everett, in an entertaining duel role at St. Trinian’s headmistress Miss Frinton and her brother, Carnaby. Joined by Colin Firth, he’s clearly having a whale of a time, and his casting process a wise decision. It’s great to see the always-wonderful Celia Imrie in there, too.

St Trinian’s, as you’d expect, has plenty of problems, notably a script that relies too much on the charm of its cast to pull it through. But heck, it’s still fun, and a hard film not to enjoy. It won’t win Oscars, but it will put a grin on your face. --Jon Foster

5.0 out of 5 stars back on track 19 Sep 2009
Format:DVD
Brilliant! I was hesitant to buy this but I'm glad I did. This is St Trinians as it should be done. Total anarchy, mayhem, great music. This movie definitely captures the spirit of the earlier versions. Lots of references to other movies like Colin Firth after his dip in the pond.
If you like the earlier St Trinians then this is a must buy. British humor at its best.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Belles Ring Out 29 Jun 2010
By M. J. Saxton VINE VOICE
Format:DVD
For the first ten minutes I wasn't too sure about this remake, then the fun began to kick in.

The film has kept to the tradition of English comedy; I use the word advisedly because it sure takes the piss out of the English. It is full of that kind of character comedy that British actors excel. The plot is as strong as it needs to be and nicely inventive. I love the idea of the gangs of girls, "Chavs", "Posh Tottie", "Geeks" etc as some sore of bizarre house system. The twins are a blast from the past, just the sort of girls you'd find in the originals.

Rupert Everett is a good laugh, but is out-classed by Colin Firth. It's ridiculous, it's fun and it works just as a comedy should. Well worth a few watches.

5.0 out of 5 stars Jolly hockey sticks 26 Sep 2008
Format:DVD
What a riot this is! I was hesitant at first, largely because I tend to get my knickers in a knot over modern teenagers (chavs? emos? huh?) but I want to be one NOW! I always wanted to go to boarding school (too much Enid Blyton as a child) but who needs Malory Towers? It's got a great soundtrack, the girls look fantastic, there's a strong message of solidarity and Rupert Everett always makes me laugh. This will become one of my must-sees on horrid winter evenings or when I'm in need of a boost. If only we'd sung a school song along those lines - we'd certainly have sung a lot louder! Watch this. It's great.

4.0 out of 5 stars FANTASTIC FUN!!! 22 July 2009
By Lizzie VINE VOICE
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
Got this movie for Christmas and have only just got around to watch it. What took me so long? This film is great. St Trinians is brought up to date and into the 21st Century. Sure, the plot line isn't all that deep, but it's juvenile antics from start to finish, with a fantastic soundtrack.

All the actors are perfectly cast, with the biggest surprise for me being Russell Brand, who is a super Flash Harry.

I agree with the reviewer that said the blue ray disc wasn't any better than upscaled ordinary dvd. For this it lost a star. But the film itself - I will be pulling this one out again and again when I want a laugh.

Just Brilliant!

By pacem et amorem TOP 1000 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:DVD
I was nervous about this latest St Trinian's film. I'm a die-hard fan of the old movies and was worried that this would be a poor attempt to resurrect what were perfect comedies of years gone by.

I was, however, wrong to be afraid of this new breed of St Trinian's girls and their teachers - though I don't think I'd like to get on the wrong side of the little minxes!

This film is perfectly judged, cast, scripted and realised. I couldn't have wished for a better surprise Christmas pressie! If you liked the originals and are open-minded enough to open your heart to this new incarnation then this is the DVD for you.

Magnificent and top marks!
