YMMV: Troop Beverly Hills
  • Ear Worm: You can make it big, you can make it bigger than life...
  • Retroactive Recognition: Phyllis' daughter Hannah is played by a young Jenny Lewis (an indie musician and the face of Rilo Kiley).
    • This was also an early role for Carla Gugino, from Son in Law and Watchmen.
      • "Funny Aneurysm" Moment: Carla played Chica, the girl whose parents neglected her to the point that they forgot her birthday, ended up playing Sally Jupiter, the superhero stage mom who was consistently vilified for being the "whorish" Silk Spectre.
  • Some Anvils Need to Be Dropped: The idea that a group of rich and slightly spoiled young women, led by an equally if not more so spoiled rich woman, are not only not as shallow as they seem but are able to be "girly" and do things like rough it in the outdoors and preserver through trust and teamwork.
  • Values Dissonance: Phyllis smokes throughout the whole movie using a cigarette holder. Only one person- one of the girls in the troop- calls her out on it. Nowadays, no scouting leader could get away with smoking anywhere near children.
