Poppy (Emma Roberts) is the quintessential L.A. teen—spoiled, self-absorbed and out of control, but when one of her pranks goes too far, her father ships her across the pond to an all girls English boarding school. Can Poppy shake up her disciplined dorm and inject some style into the hideous school uniforms? Find out in Kidzworld’s review of Wild Child on DVD.


From Brat To Brit

Poppy has been out of control since the death of her mother. In an ill-advised attempt to help the grieving process, Poppy’s father showers her with gifts and gives her everything she wants, but when Poppy goes too far, she’s shipped off to England in the hope that she’ll pick up some of that British charm.


Attitude Adjustment

Poppy’s new school is rough—the headmaster confiscates her cell phone and her roommates aren’t down with Poppy’s bratty behavior. Not only that, but her friends in L.A. seem to have totally forgotten about her. It’s up to Poppy to make some serious attitude adjustments or risk spending the semester alone.


Special Features

In School Memories the girls reminisce about their high school days the Lacrosse special features the girls learning the ins and outs of the rough and tumble sport. The best feature is the Making of Wild Child because you get to see the homemade footage made by the actors on set. Emma Roberts and the others took a camera around to document their misadventures and the results are pretty funny.


The Bottom Line

Despite a shaky start—Poppy is beyond annoying pre-personality make-over—Wild Child picks up thanks to some fun moments and good performances by Emma Roberts and the late Natasha Richardson. Stylistically Wild Child is closer to the cheeky St. Trinian’s than the well-written and hilarious Mean Girls, but if you’re into teen dramas and don’t mind the usual clichés, you’ll find plenty to like here.
