St. Trinian's - 2007 - 6/10 Remake of the 50s classic series. England's notorious St. Trinian's all girl school. Lots of girls in uniforms. Cute girls, hot babes, randy vixens, Goth gurlz, stoners. Goofy hijinks in a silly plot to save the school for misfits from closure. This comedy was slagged by a pile UK critics, 35-60 year old geezers, but has fared better after a recent global release. A hoot from beginning to end. Colin Firth, Rupert Everett, Gemma Arterton, Russell Brand, and probably 10 future stars.
Dawn French: 30 Million Minutes - 2014 - 5/10 Give the comedian an A for effort in her one-woman show. Ms French charges about the stage, reacts to huge "BOYS!!" signs, while giving a personal history tour. Growing up, her family, and her body image - the latter, at length. Laughs are rare in the first hour. At times, she seems to pause a second or two, waiting for applause or laughter that never comes. Females I watched this with giggled during the “mother daughter” section, the last 20 minutes. More memoir than stand up comedy, though not always memorable. This ain‘t Vicar Of Dibley , it ain’t French & Saunders , and it sure as hell ain’t Ab Fab . Live show was wildly popular, nevertheless.
