Synopsis

The belles are tolling for England’s most notorious girls’ school. Mired in debt and under personal investigation from the Minister for Education (Colin Firth), headmistress Fritton (Rupert Everett) and her morally relaxed pupils are going to have to bend more rules than usual to save their beloved institution. Low on sugar, high on spice, this ultra-modern reworking of the classic British comedy finds Firth with his trousers down, Everett with a boob job, and comedian Russell Brand doing solid business as wheeler-dealer Flash Harry.
