Nicely cheesy in a 1960's way but not that memorable or engaging in any other way
Despite the warnings given and dangers highlighted by the Saint Trinian's movies, the nuns at a girls' Catholic school decide to attend a religious rally in California with some of their pupils. Under the steady and watchful gaze of the Mother Superior they select the students most suitable to go and head off with a handful of staff, including the young and rather rebellious Sister George. With such a volatile mix the road trip was never going to be smooth but nobody could have seen the amount of comic adventures, personally conflict and emotional soul-searching that they would encounter along the way.

From the wonderfully cheesy theme song and credits sequence, this film continues to be very much stuck in the 1960's even if it actually has very little else going for it outside of this "groovy" appeal. The actual story sees a group of nuns taking pupils from their girls' school into California to attend a convention. That is pretty much it, the rest is just a series of semi-comic adventures during their travels. This wouldn't have been a problem if it had been particularly funny but rather the script just plods along for the most part without doing that much of interest. This is not to say it is without any value because it does have a certain wholesome charm to it that is associated with the dated feel it has. I was never that interested in the story but the odd moment gave me pause to chuckle. At times the story did throw up some interesting conflicts and scenes but generally it is never that impressive or engaging.

Without a great deal of characterisation to handle, the cast mostly just deliver the narrative basics. Russell easily dominates the film although support is memorable from Stevens and a few others. I intensely disliked both James and Hunter as characters and I also felt their performances were fairly simplistic. Little touches from Johnson, Godfrey and a few others are reasonably enjoyable but this isn't really an actors' film so much as it is a bit of a light jaunt.

Overall then a fairly unmemorable film that has some amusing bits and some interesting but generally it is a fairly uninspiring film that is just an attempt at comic interludes run together. It did make me chuckle here and there and it had moments that made me pay attention but generally it didn't do much for me and I can't imagine too many viewers will be seeking this out.
