Rating: 2/5 -- Stereotypes, silliness reign in uneven parody of rich girls. Full Review
Common Sense Media
Dreadful as their performances are, the actors are the victims. Full Review
Rating: 2/4 -- 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. Full Review
...Long does make it fun for a while....TROOP BEVERLY HILLS remains lively even at its silliest...
New York Times
Rating: 2/5 -- Not how I'd choose to spend the evening.
Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)
It's a treat (and necessity) not only for youngish gay boys, but for anyone who enjoys campy good fun with the added bonus of watching dominant cultural values self-destruct. Full Review
Rating: 2/4 -- ...the film eventually does wear out its welcome due primarily to its wildly uneven structure and Jeff Kanew's ostentatiously '80s directorial choices. Full Review
Reel Film Reviews
Determined to win back her husband, Freddy (Craig T. Nelson), outrageously wealthy Beverly Hills housewife Phyllis Nefler (Shelley Long) becomes the leader of her daughter's Wilderness Girls troop.Though she's more accustomed to Gucci bags than sleeping bags, Phyllis is determined to show Freddy that she is the same energetic and resourceful woman that he fell in love with...but she never realized that proving her devotion would require her to touch dirt and bugs! This outlandish comedy also features cameos by the likes of Robin Leach, Pia Zadora, Frankie Avalon, Annette Funicello, Dr. Joyce Brothers, and Cheech Marin.
Light family comedy about the mishaps of a bored Beverly Hills housewife, soon to be divorced, who decides to volunteer as den mother to the neighborhood Wilderness Girls to boost her self-esteem and make her daughter proud of her.
