Consensus: More mild than wild. This tween comedy mess falls flat on its face due to poor characters, poor direction and poor jokes.

Competent if mechanical helming debut by editor Nick Moore.

The Age (Australia)

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 film has an energy and honesty about it: it's lively, funny and smart and the characters are appealing

This was okay for a teen movie. Vastly superior to St Trinians which I recently also inflicted on myself, still could have been better though. Could have done… More
