The story is about Amber, a mean popular girl who gets electrocuted and dies and is not allowed to enter into heaven unless she helps the least popular girl in school become Prom Queen within a week, but things do not go as planned.
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

This film is about a American teenage girl with severe conduct problems. Her father sends her to a British boarding school in order to have her cleaned up.
"Wild Child" is a light hearted teen comedy. The abundance of hair dressing scenes, shopping scenes and dancing scenes is an indication that "Wild Child" is a fluffy movie that goes very well with popcorn. Though Poppy's behaviour is unacceptable at times, the film makes a point in saying that a person who displays bad behaviour is not equivalent to a bad person. It gives hope and support to troubled people who are rejected and disliked due to their bad behaviour.
The plot is realistic and yet dramatic enough to keep viewers interested. The friendships that Poppy created are well portrayed and told. The ending is heartwarming and satisfying. "Wild Child" is a great brain off comedy, and I enjoyed watching it.
