There are [[RichBitch richer and bitchier]] areas than Beverly Hills, but only UsefulNotes/LasVegas rivals it as an icon of excess.²²Watch out for the iconic shield-shaped welcome sign, which is pretty much [[EiffelTowerEffect guaranteed to appear]] in any work set there (as in the trope image).²²Compare AmericanTitle.²²----²!!Examples:²[[foldercontrol]]²²[[folder:Films -- Live-Action]]²* ''Film/BeverlyHillsCallGirls''²* ''Film/BeverlyHillsChihuahua''²* ''Film/BeverlyHillsCop''²* ''Film/BeverlyHillsMadam''²* ''Film/BeverlyHillsMassacre''²* ''Film/BeverlyHillsNinja''²* ''Film/DownAndOutInBeverlyHills''²* ''Film/SlumsOfBeverlyHills''²* ''Film/TheTakingOfBeverlyHills''²* ''Film/TroopBeverlyHills''²[[/folder]]²²[[folder:Literature]]²* ''The Beverly Hills Diet'', a (supposedly) non-fiction example²* ''Literature/{{Dinoverse}}''s ''Beverly Hills Brontosaurus'' doesn't take place in Beverly Hills, but the title character is from there.²[[/folder]]²²[[folder:Live-Action TV]]²* ''Series/TheBeverlyHillbillies''²* ''Series/BeverlyHills90210''²* ''Beverly Hills Buntz'', a spin-off of ''Series/HillStreetBlues''²* ''Series/TattooedTeenageAlienFightersFromBeverlyHills''²* ''Series/TheRealHousewives of Beverly Hills''²* ''Series/RichKidsOfBeverlyHills''²[[/folder]]²²[[folder:Music]]²* "Beverly Hills", the [[TitleThemeTune catchy]] song by Music/{{Weezer}}.²[[/folder]]²²[[folder:Professional Wrestling]]²* On the rare times he actually wrestled, manager Wrestling/BobbyHeenan was billed as being from Beverly Hills.²[[/folder]]²²[[folder:Sports]]²* ''Sports/BeverlyHillsOnIce''²[[/folder]]²²[[folder:Web Original]]²* This is parodied with ''[[ Beverly Hills Cthulhu]]''.²[[/folder]]²²[[folder:Western Animation]]²* ''WesternAnimation/BeverlyHillsTeens''²* ''WesternAnimation/TopCat and the Beverly Hills Cats''²[[/folder]]²²----
