St Trinian's
This ultra-glossy, twenty-first-century update of the original series of films about the anarchic student body of the titular ‘ladies school’ comes bounding off the screen like a feature-length ad for Top Shop. Out go any radical notions of female social upheaval and in come clumsy drug jokes, broad stereotypes and reams-upon-reams of thudding pop music. The lead performances from the young cast are generally weak (apart from an excellent Jodie Whittaker) and the script is a tiresome mulch of self-conscious cultural references. Not even a camp-as-Christmas turn from Rupert Everett as effete headmistress Camilla Fritton is enough to salvage this mess, which drifts aimlessly towards a tawdry heist finale that will only make sense to those with the ability to bump their own brain-patterns to the level of sub-moronic torpor. The one-dimensional, any-excuse-for-a-musical-montage direction does, admittedly, inject some much-needed zip into the proceedings, but in terms of a cultural legacy, this is one to file next to ‘Spiceworld: The Movie’.

you obviously have no idea what the film was about before you had watched it . I mean come on! its a film about rebellious kids just because you think your finger is up your bum does not mean that we should! its for teenagers not for adults you idiot you are obviously one sided over your age gender and social class. If you were a good critic you would at least look outside of your small little box and think would it be good for the target audience age range because if I read your review I would think eh? hold on you expect young kids/teenagers to like what your expecting? you seriously need a reality check mate :)

Colin Firth, you should be ashamed of yourself. How much were you paid for your pride. [no pun intended]The film, if you could call it that, is rubbish and anyone who paid to see it should get there money back.

Stop trying to sound intellegent. The issue back when (Bells of) Saint Trinians was released was female indipendence. The new pressing issue is the 'cliques' in youth culture bonding together and thats what the movie addresses. Plus, it references alot of British films, the music rocks, the cast is amazing, and it's fekkin' hallerious.
