#68 Troop Beverly Hills

Troop Beverly Hills DT80s

Out-of-context quote from this episode: “It’s like Cyndi Lauper in Vibes cranked to 11. If you thought velvet, backless turtleneck was something, wait until you see this movie.”

April is programmed by Andrew, and we’re kicking it off with Troop Beverly Hills, featuring Shelley Long, the return of Jenny Lewis and Craig T. Nelson,

Tripp tells a Shelley Long/Shelley Duvall mixup story, Craig T. Nelson is kind of a dick, Chekhov’s balance beam is in the mix, questionable methods for taking care of children are revealed, Andrew busts out a history lesson about Imelda Marcos, we come up with a way better ending for this movie, some Wilderness Girls are actual monsters and there’s like a really weird level of evil from the Red Feathers.
