Synopsis

As Phyllis, a Beverly Hills housewife, is in the middle of a divorce, she tries to find focus in her life by taking over her daughter’s (Hannah) Wilderness Girl troop. 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) and 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 takes the girls camping at a Beverly Hills hotel and earns patches relating to material things. The district leader, Velda, feels the troop should be disbanded. However, the head of the Wilderness girls organization believes that as long as Phyllis has taken an active interest in the girls, that it’s the only thing that’s important. Then Velda begins endlessly sabatoge the girls. How will it all end?

Dove Review

This was a great family film although the parents talk about getting a divorce. They end up realizing what they would be missing and do not go through with it. The Beverly Hills’ mom who is very self centered changes her ways and winds up teaching a group of young girls how to be selfless and help others. There are many lessons learned in this fun-filled film.
