This celebration of mid-Atlantic compromise is one for the youngest and most forgiving of teenage girls.

Clumsy direction means most jokes fall flatter than the paper-thin plot.

The movie falls apart when it tries to explain why Poppy's been sent to this school. And the Spartacus moment at her school "trial" for misconduct is so cringe-worthy you want to die.
