“A Mildly Wild Child”

published 21/08/2008

ProA glossy addition to the teen movie genre.

ConsIt's hardly original.

Poppy Moore is a spoilt rich girl from LA whose wayward behaviour goes too far. Her father sends her to an all-girls boarding school in England in the hopes of straightening her out. She hates it, so starts a campaign of pranks with the aim of being expelled. Nothing seems to work, so she sets...

ProGreat movie for teens - some good one liners.

ConsMaybe a bit too girly?? Therefor limited audience.

***Wild Child (2008) *** I sat down this holiday and watched this film (DVD) with my daughter and to be honest at first didn't think that much of it. However, after it being on the telly over and over for the best part of the day, it grew on me and I began to appreciate its merits. Perhaps I was...

ConsThis film is quite cheesy in parts

I think that this film 'wild child' is a great watch for teenage girls. The film is about poppy, a spoilt, rich teenager from LA who, after her mother died has become fairly distant with her dad. Rather than giving her time and attention he just gives her clothes and gadgets and money. But one...

ProFunny, girly movie

ConsNone

I thought that this film was so funny, it is a typical teen chick movie but great for a good night in with the girls or simply on your own. I watched this movie at the cinema and thought that it was brilliant. Really brings a character like Paris Hilton to life and what she might have been like...

ProGreat actors and jokes!

ConsNot so original

Honestly, it's a great movie! Real funny, ok story, perfect ending. However the theme........well it could use a little work. I mean, every single movie nowadays has this one theme. Girl comes to town, she hates it, she finds friends, a guy she likes and she decides to stay. Then something gets...

ProFunny to watch

ConsMain lead little annoying

teen drama that overcomes its terrible opening and gradually breathes life into the usual cliches, It is a well designed script with many twists and turns. Despite a shaky start, Wild Child is entertaining teen chick flick, this film also highlights the importance of friendship. Mean Girls meets...

Product Information : The Wild Child (DVD)

Manufacturer's product description

A touching and philosophical film, set in the 18th century and based on the diaries of real-life French doctor Jean Itard. Itard fought authorities for the right to take charge of the social and intellectual education of a wild child--a young boy who somehow had managed to survive, alone and uncared for, in nature. Although most of the medical establishment felt that the child, who could not speak and often exhibited violent behaviour, was hopelessly retarded, the tenacious Itard, with techniques sometimes kind and frequently cruel, managed to prove them wrong.
