St. Trinian's...
Last night Stu and I went to see the St. Trinian's movie at the Vue in Islington. Oh dear. Think Spiceworld: The Movie (made by same people). The setup was sort of OK (being based upon the books and The Belles Of St Trinian's) but it just should have been funnier. Rupert Everett was sort of OK but Russell Brand just looked nervous. And I wasn't sure just who the film was aimed at; adults or kids. Mostly it seemed to written be for 12-15 year old girls judging by most of the cultural references in it but then just about every plot twist revolved around giving the relevant character drugs (uppers, downers, poppers, magic mushrooms, skunk or ecstasy). So not for kids then. I somehow doubt that they'll be making a sequel anytime soon. Shame.

Best bit: fast edited montages set to songs by Shampoo, Sophie Ellis Bextor and Girls Aloud.

Best 'in' joke: when Rupert Everett's character (in drag) muses to Colin Firth's character, "we met in another time... another country..."
