Consensus: Both naughtier and campier than Ronald Searle's original post war series, this St. Trinian's leans on high jinks instead of performances or witty dialogue.

Jason Anderson
Toronto Star

The result is too competent to be a travesty and too ordinary to be interesting.

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.

Firth looks like he's changing his mind about being in this movie WHILE the cameras are running.

Jeannette Catsoulis
New York Times

A stunningly witless revival of the infamous British film series about a girls' boarding school.

Sean Axmaker

Lou Lumenick
New York Post

Bad in ways that are almost endearing...

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.

It's an okay romp with a bunch of bad girls trying to do the right thing by doing a very bad thing.

I've not seen the old St Trinian's films from the 50's, but good to see the brand get a modern day English make over. It's pretty much what… More
