The Belles Ring Out,
This review is from: St Trinian's [DVD]  (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.
