Oliver Parker's dismal public-school caper doesn't even have the decency to be camp. Rupert Everett donning a Margaret Thatcher-style wig simply doesn't cut it.

In fact, Colin Firth, David Tennant and Gemma Arterton hang your heads in collective shame for contributing to this rot. The plot? The schoolgirls – who all appear to be in their late twenties – are on the hunt for buried treasure after they discover that their Headmistress, Miss Fritton (Everett), is the descendant of a pirate. The original St Trinian's escapades were blessed with an anarchic spirit and deft, inimitable comic actors such as Alastair Sim and Joyce Grenfell. This sequel has nothing to recommend it.

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Your employer will entrust you with some important tasks. Don't let them down. By doing a good job, you'll pave the way for a pay increase. You can put the extra money towards a home or car. Having financial security will allow you to develop your creative talents. It's important for you to exercise your imagination at every opportunity. Letting it lay dormant is like refusing to harvest a thriving crop. Stop wasting the valuable gifts you've been given.More
