This vacuous rehash of teen movie clichés presents Californian brat Poppy, a foul-mouthed and obnoxious Malibu-mite who is shipped off to a posh boarding school in England in the hope that she learn that values and price-tags are not the same thing. Another dog-eared slice of Working Title crapola aimed squarely at the dumbest of US teens.
