ST TRINIAN’S (2007) GO! 8.30PM, M, COM­EDY

The Sunday Mail (Queensland) - TV Guide - - HIGHLIGHTS -

At­trac­tive tal­ent? Check. Re­spected Bri­tish ac­tor in a comedic role? Check. Clas­sic sto­ry­line? Yep, this farce has ev­ery­thing tweens en­joy and while it just misses the mark, it’s a con­sis­tently en­ter­tain­ing flick. Based on Ron­ald Searle’s car­toons, this stars Talulah Ri­ley as Annabelle Frit­ton, new to the un­ruly girls’ school that her fa­ther, Carn­aby (Ru­pert Everett, who also ap­pears in drag), is threat­en­ing to close down. Cue a gag­gle of mis­chievous girls who band to­gether to save the day and you have one fine school­yard bat­tle. With Colin Firth, co­me­dian Rus­sell Brand and Mis­cha Barton along for the ride, this makes for some fun view­ing. ★★✩
