St Trinian's, the infamous school for "young ladies," is once again facing dire financial crisis! The bank is threatening headmistress Camilla Fritton with closure. Her unorthodox doctrine of free expression and self empowerment is also under threat from new Education Minister Geoffrey Thwaits, an old flame of Camilla's who is determined to bring discipline and order to the anarchic school. In true St Trinian style, the girls are in a league of their own -- smart, fearless and determined to defend the school they love to the end. They need to unite the warring girl gang… More

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"The result is too competent to be a travesty and too ordinary to be interesting."
‑ Jason Anderson, Toronto Star
"Anyone with a fondness for the midcentury cartoons and films that inspired this scrappy comedy will appreciate the latest trip to the titular British boarding school."
‑ Elizabeth Weitzman, New York Daily News
"The actors are left grasping for laughs as the script tries to figure out just what it wants to be."
‑ David Cornelius,
"I suspect this boorish, crude, often vulgar British comedy lost a great deal of its jolly credence whilst crossing the Atlantic."
‑ Susan Granger, SSG Syndicate
"Sadly, the level of deviance hovers around iCarly levels, as does the sophistication of the humor."
‑ Jordan Hoffman, UGO
"Firth looks like he's changing his mind about being in this movie WHILE the cameras are running."
‑ Michael Phillips, At the Movies
"A stunningly witless revival of the infamous British film series about a girls' boarding school."
‑ Jeannette Catsoulis, New York Times
"... this Animal House of private girls schools is a motley misfit of a misfit comedy that offers outrageous antics in place of actual humor."
‑ Sean Axmaker,
"A tame, glittery spoof without a brain in its head or a character worth caring about."
‑ Robert Levin, Critic's Notebook
"Quirky British boarding-school comedy has iffy messages."
‑ Sandie Angulo Chen, Common Sense Media
"Every scene is so frantic and desperate to make you laugh, to be clever, to be naughty and none of it worked."
‑ A.O. Scott, At the Movies
"Bad in ways that are almost endearing..."
‑ Lou Lumenick, New York Post
"St. Trinian's is a painless onslaught of dumb gags, gratuitous cheesecake, random movie allusions, and general nonsense, but the classy cast (which includes Gemma Arterton, Toby Jones, and Stephen Fry) helps earn it a passing grade."
‑ Peter Keough, Boston Phoenix
"St. Trinian's is a hoot, but it's thrown-together, haphazard feel will only grate on the sensibilities of cineastes or aesthetic and moral prudes bent on decrying "yoof" culture -- although it's only moderately rude by contemporary standards."
‑ John P. McCarthy, Boxoffice Magazine
"indifferent to storytelling, craft and, dare I mention, fresh ideas"
‑ Chris Cabin,
