DVD Review: St. Trinian's School for "Bad" Girls
DVD RELEASE DATE: January 26, 2010
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 Friends 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 (Mama Mia!, Bridget Jones's Diary), LENA HEADEY ("Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles," Vacancy), RUSSELL BRAND (Forgetting Sarah Marshall) and CATERINA MURINO (Casino Royale). Also starring MISHCA 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.
First of all this movie is one of those movies that one of us randomly saw at a Blockbuster and decided to rent it. Then decided to buy it and got her friends to watch it, which they ended up loving it also. This movie also makes you watch what is going on in the background. Rupert Everett was great as the headmistress. Yes, mistress. The girls of the movie worked well together and made chaos look like fun. Great laughs, great chaos, and great Mission Impossible-esque adventure. The one downer: St. Trinians 2 is available on DVD, as Region 2 only. The first one ended where there was nothing left hanging. But we are curious to find out what mayhem they unleash while looking for treasure in the second one.
