This review is from: St Trinian's [DVD]  (DVD)The 2007 version of St Trinians is a hilarious update on the original films featuring a wonderful cast who obviously had a great time making the film. The plot repeats many of the ideas from the originals. The worst school in the country is under threat from a conservative minister. The school is in financial jeopardy, not helped by its headmistress. It is up to the plucky girls to save the day by attempting to rob the National Gallery.
The film is bright, colourful and energetic. Contemporary girl bands have been recruited to perform to soundtrack whilst performer of the calibre of Stephen Fry, Colin Firth and Russell Brand make the film fun to watch. In particular, Firth delights in a series of cheeky references to some of his past performances. Rupert Everett steals the show with his dual role and captures the spirit of the originals perfectly.
It is a film which is consistently entertaining and energetic performed with verve and great humour.
