Movie Info

Shelly Long stars in this comedy as a spoiled Beverly Hills wife who decides--wanting to prove her husband's accusation of her selfishness wrong--to become the leader of her daughter's wilderness group. Though taking them on outings at the mall rather than in the woods, she later must prove her worth as a legitimate troop leader. After some zany incidents, all parties learn lessons of teamwork and selflessnessmore

Critic Reviews for Troop Beverly Hills

All Critics (15) | Top Critics (3)

Instead of being a merciless evisceration of the lifestyles of the rich, it's a little morality play in which Long transforms herself into a warm and useful person. Nobody within a mile of this project seems to have possessed an ounce of irony.

Dreadful as their performances are, the actors are the victims.

Stereotypes, silliness reign in uneven parody of rich girls.

Full Review… | December 23, 2014
Common Sense Media

...the film eventually does wear out its welcome due primarily to its wildly uneven structure and Jeff Kanew's ostentatiously '80s directorial choices.

Super Reviewer

A fun comedy with a dimwitted rich lady leading a troop of girlscouts through the wilderness of Beverly Hills, and then into the wild itself. The comic situations depicted are successful.
