ST. TRINIAN'S - THE LEGEND OF FRITTON'S GOLD is a UK comedy film about a headmistress and her anarchic schoolgirls attempting to discover the whereabouts of some hidden gold before a group of villains retrieve it.

Language

The film contains some mild bad language (for example, 'piss', 'screw', 'bugger', 'bloody').

Sex

Some mild sex references and innuendo includes sight of a newspaper article pinned up on a dart board and headlined 'Member of Parliament' with a photo of apparently naked male with a box covering his crotch and the word "Exposed!" printed across it; a man saying "Excuse me if I don't get up" and a woman replying "It won't be the first time.", a dog suggestively rubbing itself against a man's leg; and a scene in which a man

refers to "a couple of athletic sleepovers" and "a bout of ritual humiliation".

Violence

There is a scene showing older schoolgirls punching and kicking men in the head and body, a scene in which a young girl butts a man in the stomach, and one in which a man squeezes another man's throat until he collapses to the ground. These scenes are comic.

There is a comic scene in which a skeleton is discovered in a coffin, and one in which a schoolgirl is possessed by the spirit of a dead pirate. The film also contains scenes in which an elderly headmistress smokes a cigarette. These scenes do not glamorise or promote smoking.

Precuts information

During post-production, the distributor sought and was given advice on how to secure the desired classification. Following this advice, certain changes were made prior to submission

Note: The following text may contain spoilers

This film was originally shown to the BBFC in an unfinished version. The BBFC advised the company that the film was likely to receive a '12A' classification but that the requested 'PG' certificate could be achieved by making changes to four scenes, including dialogue. In particular the BBFC suggested that the company remove a phallically placed dart on a newspaper picture; reduce the enthusiasm with which an electric chair and death is presented; remove any imitable detail of household products being mixed to create a weapon; and remove an aggressive use of 'bitch'. When the finished version of the film was submitted these changes had been made and the film was classified 'PG'.
