Storyline

Among the girls are Tiffany, (who her father has to bribe to attend meetings, Emily (the daughter of an out of work actor, whose financial difficulties hinders her wanting to participate in certain activities), the neurotic Tessa (whose parents divorce has forced her into therapy twice a week), the hostile Chica (whose parents are too busy with their own lives to even remember her birthday), and Claire (the child star who see the wilderness girls as her chance to lead a "normal" life). Phyllis then begins to take the girls camping at a Beverly Hills hotel and earn patches relating to material things. The district leader, Velda, feels the troop should be disbanded.

hilarious Beverly Hills house wife proves that you don't have to have bad hair, no makeup or discount clothes to be a true wilderness girl...
17 August 2005 | by See all my reviews

this movie is for anyone who can laugh at their own ridiculousness and still look utterly fabulous doing it. Shelley long is uproarious and reminds us all of what we loved about the 80's...EXCESS!! big hair, big fashion, big money and big fun! i know i wish i had Mrs. Phylis Neffler for my mom. she has the ability to make you laugh till your gut hurts and still let you know that she cares and would do anything for you..even camp with dirt and bugs and rain. many people who have never had money cant appreciate a lot of the comedy because they have never experienced what its like to have nothing to do all day but shop. and some may be offended because they believe that Beverly hills kids really do act as such, but living not too far from Beverly Hills makes it all the more hilarious. this movie is a classic and anyone who says otherwise doesn't have much of a sense of humor..probably a bad childhood or something...whatever...GO TROOP BEVERLY HILLS!
