Ok, so the plot's quite predictable, so what? I was still able to watch it and fully enjoy it. The story is about a lady from Beverly Hills whom decides to take over her daughter's girl scout troop. Some of the lines were absoultley priceless, the acting wasn't top notch, however, Carla Gugino pulls off her scenes really well, especially when her parents forgot her birthday. Sure, the plot was not new, yet, there was something refreshing that I got out of it. This movie made me laugh until I cried, I really enjoyed it. Another cool scene was when the troop was singing cookietime, I was rolling on the floor with laughter. This is, all in all, a family film, and it's in my opinion a classic, a gem of a movie. ********** stars and two thumbs way up, don't pass up an opportunity to see this movie!
