Caris and Neha from Not Having It All podcast join Flixwatcher remotely to review Caris’ choice Wild Child.

Wild Child is a 2008 teen comedy romance film starring Emma Roberts as the Wild Child Poppy, a spoilt LA brat who is sent to an English boarding school to straighten her out and teach her valuable life lessons. Natasha Richardson also makes her last film appearance as the headmistress Mrs Kingsley and Alex Pettyfer plays the love interest.

Wild Child is a mix of a typical fish out of water film, Poppy struggles with British food, locations and finds an enemy within seconds of arriving and a story of friendship with bonding over secondhand clothes shopping. Not only is Wild Child a crime against the chip butty it neither works as a comedy or a romance particularly well. There are some surprising plot turns – involving a completely unexpected act of arson.


Despite Caris’ enthusiasm for Wild Child, Flixwatcher and Neha were unconvinced and scores were low across all the categories, apart from small screen score to give an overall score of 2.40.
