Dreadful as their performances are, the actors are the victims.

Reel Film Reviews

...the film eventually does wear out its welcome due primarily to its wildly uneven structure and Jeff Kanew's ostentatiously '80s directorial choices.

It's a treat (and necessity) not only for youngish gay boys, but for anyone who enjoys campy good fun with the added bonus of watching dominant cultural values self-destruct.

Instead of being a merciless evisceration of the lifestyles of the rich, it's a little morality play in which Long transforms herself into a warm and useful person. Nobody within a mile of this project seems to have possessed an ounce of irony.

Troop Beverly Hills is a fizzled farce...lightweight and inconsequential to boot. Clearly, it's about as comically crunchy as a box of smashed girl scout cookies
