35mm presentation - Shelly Long stars as a spoiled Beverly Hills housewife who decides -- in an effort to disprove her husband's characterization that she's a selfish trophy wife -- to become the leader of her daughter's wilderness group. Failing miserably at first -- she takes them on outings at the mall rather than in the woods -- she later must prove her worth as a legitimate troop leader by instilling lessons of teamwork and selflessness in her young charges.
