Since Malibu brat Poppy Moore's mom passed away, she has pushed her rich, usually absent dad Gerry shamelessly. When his patience wears out, she's shipped off to her mother's former English boarding school for girls, Abbey Mount. On her first day she makes enemies of most dorm mates, especially dominant lacrosse school captain Harriet, and the school's principal Mrs. Kingsley. Unwilling to accept the strict regime, she decides to misbehave and take the blame for everyone until she's dismissed. The school's only appealing feature for her is Kingsley's dashing son Freddie. When the dream prince transfers his favor from ambitious, uptight Harriet to unruly Poppy, that changes everything.Written by

When Poppy moves into her dorm room, she carries an iPhone around looking for a signal, and another girl draws attention to the phone being an iPhone. At the end of the scene, the phone has suddenly changed into a Sidekick with a pink, sparkly case. See more »
You're not. You awful bitch. You've turned this school upside down. You've ruined everything. You started it. I only finished what you started.
Harriet? My office, now.

From the title we really expect an outragous Wild Child but we get the complete opposite.
I was hoping to see more of the LA themed lifestyle but we only saw this on the first 5 minutes. The school came into the film way to quickly, it was almost like skipping a few chapters. Later on in the film things were getting a little bit better although the characters were so annoying, it was frustrating to watch...
It doesn't relate to many other films apart from St. Trinians. This film is different in its own sense of humour, but that gets boring after a while...
I recommend this for a girlish slumber party, otherwise its a miss!
