Wild ChildPoppy is a self-obsessed, incorrigible brat who lives a pampered life in her L.A. world. Although she's handed credit cards with unlimited balances and surrounded by countless hangers on, Poppy can't escape the mounting frustration she feels with her family situation. After a final thoughtless prank, her exasperated father ships her off to boarding school in England. There, Poppy meets her match in a stern headmistress and a class full of girls who will not tolerate her selfishness.

Critic Reviews of "Wild Child"VarietyOctober 18, 2008
Competent if mechanical helming debut by editor Nick Moore.Time OutAugust 15, 2008
This celebration of mid-Atlantic compromise is one for the youngest and most forgiving of teenage girls.DVDTalk.comDecember 07, 2009
A slight but tart teen comedy, Child carries some surprising bite, subverting the norm with a fine British cast helping to sell the pixy stick fantasy, buttressed by Roberts's refreshing angry streak.Reel Film ReviewsNovember 23, 2009
Mildly entertaining and utterly innocuous...Screen InternationalOctober 18, 2008
A project broad-based enough to make tween competitor Angus, Thongs And Perfect Snogging feel arthouse.FILMINK (Australia)September 19, 2008
What begins as tedious teen comedy/drama about a Californian brat turns out to be a surprisingly agreeable popcorn flick.The Age (Australia)September 19, 2008
The screenplay by Lucy Dahl (daughter of Roald) dwells unpleasantly on cruelty and humiliation, and finally Poppy does little more than exchange one form of snobbery for another.The AustralianSeptember 19, 2008
It's an unoriginal story but one with potential, and the actors who play Poppy's school chums are lively company.Urban CinefileSeptember 13, 2008
The film has an energy and honesty about it: it's lively, funny and smart and the characters are appealingShadows on the WallAugust 15, 2008
Bright and silly, with just enough wit and intelligence to make it watchable, this British-American teen comedy doesn't break much new ground, but is pretty entertaining while it lasts.ViewLondonAugust 15, 2008
Despite a shaky start, Wild Child is actually a surprisingly entertaining teen flick, thanks to likeable performances and a script that highlights the importance of friendship. Worth seeing.London Evening StandardAugust 15, 2008
It may be manna for teen girls but any kind of critical eye will find it about as convincingly made as the last St Trinian's movie. It is played, though, with lively abandon.
