If you were a child of the late 80′s, had a child in the late 80′s, or just watch a lot of old movies on late night cable, you may remember a little known Shelley Long film called “Troop Beverly Hills“. The story is comical and predictable: Phyllis Nefler (Long) is a posh Beverly Hills housewife and shopping addict. As she goes through a divorce from her husband, (played by Craig T. Nelson,) she volunteers to become the leader of daughter Hannah’s Wilderness Girls Troop.
Can she help them sell the required boxes of cookies and make it to the Wilderness Jamboree, or will her love of fashion stand in the way? Rent it on Netflix and find out. In the meantime, check out how what was old is new again.
