St. Trinian’s, the infamous school for ‘young ladies,’ is in trouble. Despite being an old flame of its Headmistress (in a top-of-his-class comic performance by RUPERT EVERETT, My Best Friend’s Wedding), the new Education Minister is shaking things up and the school is facing financial ruin. But the students of St. Trinian’s aren’t going to give up without a fight. After all, they excel at chaos and attitude not chemistry and algebra…and that’s exactly what it’s going to take to beat the authorities before they close down their beloved school for good. Starring COLIN FIRTH (Mamma Mia!, Bridget Jones Diary), LENA HEADEY (“Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles,” Vacancy), RUSSELL BRAND (Forgetting Sarah Marshall) and CATERINA MURINO (Casino Royale). Also starring MISCHA BARTON (“The O.C.,” “The Beautiful Life”), TALULAH RILEY (The Boat That Rocked) and GEMMA ARTERTON (Quantum of Solace, Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time), with a cameo appearance by U.K. sensation GIRLS ALOUD.

Rotten Tomatoes® Score
Critics 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.
At the Movies
Firth looks like he's changing his mind about being in this movie WHILE the cameras are running.

Common Sense Says
Quirky British boarding-school comedy has iffy messages.
What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that this British boarding-school comedy will probably appeal most to teens who enjoy quirky and/or independent films -- though they won't find any positive role models or messages here. Although it's all played for laughs, the students engage in inappropriate behavior like selling black-market goods (including vodka) and coming up with illegal ways to save their school from ruin. There's also some salty language (though "hell" and "whore" are probably the worst of it), moderate sexuality (girls walk around in lingerie, and there's a brief glimpse of an adult man's naked bum), and a fair amount of drinking among the faculty.
