St. Trinian’s school for girls is going bankrupt. But not if the girls can help it. Kidzworld reviews the British film St. Trinian’s.

St. Trinian’s is a British film about a school of troublesome girls with virtually no rules and no structure. At any given time of day you might find the girls drinking, smoking, gambling, hanging upside down over a banister, or even crucified on a chalkboard. It’s pure chaos, and the minister (Colin Firth) wants to shut them down. But first he has to catch them in the act. Fortunately the girls at St. Trinian’s are quick to cover their tracks.


The Heist

Meanwhile, the school is facing bankruptcy. Somehow they have to raise the money needed to keep St. Trinian’s running, or else all the girls will be sent to normal schools. But for the girls in the most corrupt institution in Britain, raising money isn’t the best way to make a profit. Instead, they plan a heist to steal the famous painting featured at their local museum—the girl with the pearl earring.


School Challenge

The girls enter a school challenge competition which is hosted at the museum. It’s the prime opportunity to steal the painting, and sell it to a greedy art collector. But the minister is onto their plan.


The Bottom Line

This film was just plain bad. It glorifies stealing a priceless artifact, making the criminal girls at St. Trinian’s look like the heroes. Meanwhile, the minister, who is trying to stop the trashy teenagers from their life of rebellion and crime, looks like the bad guy. It’s completely backwards. It’s unfortunate that good actors like Colin Firth would sell himself short like this. Mischa Barton[/kwlink] from the O.C. even has a small, pointless cameo in this film which doesn’t make it any better.

    When Matt Smith took over from David Tennant I was thinking it was gonna be horrible and then after the second episode I thought he was epicals too.  At first I was thinking Capaldi looked alot older but I like things hes done so far and hes still Doctor Who but the different actor..  and Im thinking hes gonna be awesome too.

    He's around the same age as the First Doctor and a few other Classic Doctors, so I don't really think he's "too" old. But I guess after Matt and David it's a big change.

    Matt Smith was the best doctor. When he first came I was like 'nah, no-one can beat david tennant' but he's definitely my favourite now. Im not sure Capaldi is right for the doctor. He's a great actor but he's too old :P
