Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that this British boarding-school comedy will probably appeal most to teens who enjoy quirky and/or independent films -- though they won't find any positive role models or messages here. Although it's all played for laughs, the students engage in inappropriate behavior like selling black-market goods (including vodka) and coming up with illegal ways to save their school from ruin. There's also some salty language (though "hell" and "whore" are probably the worst of it), moderate sexuality (girls walk around in lingerie, and there's a brief glimpse of an adult man's naked bum), and a fair amount of drinking among the faculty.

Sexual Content

The school's "Posh Toddy" clique is overtly sexually aggressive, with the girls walking around in skimpy lingerie. The headmistress and the minister kiss and make love -- it's not graphic, but you do see his naked rear end.


At the "worst school in Britain," girls are held by their ankles over stair rails, dragged around by farm equipment, etc. The younger girls make bombs for an elaborate heist that the students have concocted to steal a Vermeer painting. The phys ed skills include target shooting with semi-automatic weapons.


Mostly insults (some are British slang) like "silly cow," "whore," "shut up," "bloody hell," "toddy," and "Pikey."

Social Behavior

Yes, the girls band together to keep their school from closing, but they all engage in preposterously inappropriate behavior -- like selling black-market vodka and brainstorming criminal acts like credit card fraud, robbery, kindapping, etc. It's obviously for laughs, but it's fairly consequence-free negative behavior nonetheless.


Not applicable

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

All the teachers drink cocktails every day, and a couple are especially drunk. The first years (11-year-olds) run a black market vodka distillery out of the school.
