Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Strident, clumsy and pointless."
‑ Ray Bennett, Hollywood Reporter
"A film that flails about wildly in search of at least one half-decent joke. Tragically, the closest it gets is having a dog hump Colin Firth's leg."
‑ Neil Smith, Total Film
"This jaw-droppingly hopeless sequel deserves to be packed off for a one-way exchange trip to Columbine."
‑ Robbie Collin, News of the World
"If there is a cinematic equivalent of a Christmas panto this season, it is surely St Trinian's 2, which is broad and ramshackle, cheap and gaudy."
‑ Xan Brooks, Guardian
"St Trinians 2 achieves the near-impossible, by being even cruder, messier and more amateurish than the first outing."
‑ Christopher Tookey, Daily Mail [UK]
"It's another panto for 10-year-old girls, in which any given scene could - with only the addition of canned laughter - pass for something from children's television."
‑ Edward Porter, Sunday Times (UK)
"This sub-Carry On romp wearily coasts along on the lines of a rudimentary old-school farce rather than anything resembling wit."
‑ , Radio Times
"Oliver Parker and Barnaby Thompson do nothing here to destroy a winning formula which is cannily constructed to appeal to the target audience of teenage girls and nobody else."
‑ Allan Hunter, Screen International
"The piratical-treasure story is totally hokum, but it's all peppy, whiz-bang stuff livened up no end by Talulah Riley's fetching turn as Head Girl."
‑ Sukhdev Sandhu, Daily Telegraph
"St Trinian's 2 isn't just appalling, it's like scouring those final, last-gasp instalments of the Carry On or Confessions Of... movies looking for a laugh."
‑ David Edwards, Daily Mirror [UK]
"The tone is broad, vulgar and exuberant and its hunt for lost treasure ends up inventively at the Globe Theatre. Schoolgirls and those who like ogling schoolgirls will enjoy it."
‑ Philip French, Observer [UK]
"This contrived sequel is an interminable, headache-inducing time-waster that never picks up any speed, weighed down as it is by far too many characters, and far too many slow-motion shots of the girls striding towards the camera."
‑ Nicholas Barber, Independent on Sunday
"Cheap, ramshackle entertainment that's nevertheless imbued with affection."
‑ Kevin Maher, Times [UK]
"Diehard fans will lap it up...but it's difficult to see it winning any new converts."
‑ Tim Evans, Sky Movies
"The report card reads: Good when applying itself but must try harder."
‑ Alex Zane, Sun Online
