Trama del film:

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 of staff disciplinarian Mrs. Kingsley. Unwilling to accept the strict regime, she decides to misbehave and take the blame for everyone until she's dismissed. The school 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 KGF Vissers

    This was a film which I hadn't really been expecting much of, as
    criticism found in several sources did pan this film, mainly for its
    spoilt teenage protagonist, Poppy Moore. This obnoxious Paris
    Hilton-clone is shipped off to a stereotypical female boarding school;
    a premise which could easily be horrible.

    However, after actually seeing it, I was pleasantly surprise. Like
    recent British teen films, such as the contemporary St. Trinian's
    films, there is a lot of good natured fun to be found here and is no
    where near as atrocious as it could have been.

    Lucy Dahl's script has such an effortless charm about it, which
    includes some reasonably witty pop culture references and a realism to
    the schoolgirl characters. Nick Moore's hyper-reality take on the
    script works quite well, with pink mis-en-scene and general brightness
    invading all cinematography and greatly emphasising the feel-good
    factor of the film.

    The young supporting cast are lovable and strong; the English girls
    which Poppy makes friends with are wonderful (especially the ever
    entertaining Juno Temple as the comic member of the group Drippy),
    Georgia King gives a wonderfully over-the-top performance in the role
    of the antagonist, tyrannical prefect Harriet, and "Stormbreaker's"
    Alex Pettyfer makes for a likable, if not incredibly benign love
    interest. The American cast which come into play are also deliciously
    evil and, after being subjected to that stereotype of dim-witted,
    spoilt and generally unpleasant American brats in TV shows like "My
    Super Sweet Sixteen", it is fun to see that stereotype lampooned in
    this film.

    There is also some strong adult support from the late Natasha
    Richardson, who takes this opportunity to bring that maternal warm and
    comic timing so evident in her performance in "The Parent Trap" to
    brighten the stereotypically prim Headmistress, as well as Daisy
    Donovan, Shirley Henderson and Jason Nelkin bringing some over-the-top
    humour as members of staff at the school.

    As for Emma Roberts in the lead, she has a natural sweetness and
    fragility which helps dilute this otherwise very unlikeable lead and in
    the end, you do feel for Poppy as the story progresses into an almost-
    school drama involving several arguments and possible death.

    However, the "almost" needs to be emphasised, for otherwise, it is a
    light, fuzzy and quite amusing comedy, which would be highly
    recommended for a bit of idle Sunday afternoon fun.
