Sequel lacks spunk.

St Trinian's 2: The Legend of Fritton's Gold (Cert PG, 101 mins, Entertainment In Video, Family). Starring: Rupert Everett, Colin Firth, David Tennant, Talulah Riley, Sarah Harding, Zawe Ashton, Juno Temple, Ella Smith, Montserrat Lombard, Tamsin Egerton, Clara Paget, Gabriella Wilde.

IN 1589, salty seadog Captain Fritton (Everett) hijacks a ship full of treasure belonging to aristocrat Pomfrey (Tennant). Some 420 years later, embittered descendant Sir Piers Pomfrey (Tennant again), leader of a secret brethren called AD1, exacts his revenge by seeking the two rings which give the location of the plundered treasure.

He steals the first ring from St Trinian's school headmistress Camilla Fritton (Everett again), but has no clue to the whereabouts of the second, so the principal employs her girls to find the missing jewellery while she pursues old flame Geoffrey Thwaites (Firth).

The minxes follow the trail of clues around the capital, bound for a showdown with AD1. St Trinian's 2 is more ambitious than its predecessor but lacks some of the spunk and charm.
