Troop Beverly Hills (1989)



Critic Consensus: Troop Beverly Hills is hamstrung by a one-joke premise, leaving this Shelley Long comedy woefully short on laughs.

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 selflessness

Critic Reviews for Troop Beverly Hills

All Critics (28) | Top Critics (10)

"Troop Beverly Hills" is based on the real experiences of its producer Ava Fries, but it doesn't pay the kind of detailed attention to the Beverly Hills girls Fries must have known to make the movie work.

June 24, 2021 | Rating: 5/10 | Full Review…

For about a half-hour, "Troop Beverly Hills" brings a lot of funny situations and funny lines. Then it's time to finish the popcorn and settle down for a nap.

June 24, 2021 | Full Review…

Screenwriters Pamela Norris and Margaret Grieco Oberman hail from the mid-1980s period of Saturday Night Live, if that gives an idea of what to expect in the way of a script.

June 24, 2021 | Rating: 4/10 | Full Review…

Didn't Long read this script? Didn't Long's agent read this script?

June 24, 2021 | Rating: 1/4 | Full Review…

Long is an actress who can't throw away a line--though this is one case where she should have thrown away the whole script.

June 24, 2021 | Full Review…

Seemingly endless and punishingly unfunny...

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.
