Rupert Everett and Colin Firth star in this raucous comedy about the latest brood of devilish girls at St. Trinian's. When bankruptcy and an abysmal reputation threaten to close the school, the girls plan a heist worthy of detention. With an equally rowdy headmistress (Everett, in a gender-bending role), an inept faculty and a zealous education minister (Firth), the misdeeds are fast, furious and riotously outrageous. Lena Headey also stars.
This movies is pure awesomeness!! While you expect something like an American teen movie with weird jokes,etc you get something entirely different (the movie is British).
You start with an introduction of a....school...if you can it's a school and the characters and then turns out into a well made robbery film. All of that with an amazing cast and really really funny! Even the trailer doesn't prepare you for this. I can say that non of my friends expected to like but they turned out to be "that was goodddd".
It's full of girls but it's neither girly or boyish. It has a school but it's not for kids or teens only. It's a movie everyone can watch and the characters you may see on in may surprise you. It's amazing how each actor fitted the role so well, that you couldn't say "hmm..some else would have done it better". Many say it's not as good as the original and that's cheap. I know i like it and when i was done i had to watch the second one immediately!

St. Trinian's 2: The Legend of Fritton's Gold sees the girls return for a new term at the eponymous academy, with all the usual hi-jinks and mayhem which that entails. This being a school where anything seems to happen and usually does, on a regular basis, the students soon find themselves thrown into an action-packed treasure hunt that will see them fighting off fierce competition for the coveted Fritton's Gold from establishment rivals and the mischievous Pomfrey (David Tennant; TV's Doctor Who) and his assortment of woman-hating sidekicks.
As i said above there is a second one! This time the girls go into treasure hunting and trying to find clues! The movies turns out to be girls VS boys and is a little more kick-assing with action out of school. More boys, battles, sword fighting, flash mobs and many other things. So where it lacked the first one comes the second, and where it lacks the second comes the first one.
Many girls are now of the school and we get to see new ones, and many others are back. And while you are "ohh..why they changed her", except one or two they actually found actors who matched better the attitude of the clique they belonged.
Again i had much fun watching it. Maybe a little less but i laughed. And the story was a little more exciting than before. Two movies that i believe you should watch back to back (they are 1 hr and half each one), so you can stay in the atmosphere.
