Troop Beverly Hills.



Ummm. How was I not aware of this?? I just found out yesterday that Jenny Lewis, of Rilo Kiley fame, played Shelley Long's daughter in Troop Beverly Hills! Seriously?! How have I gone through life not knowing this?

I LOVED, I'll say it again, LOVED this movie when I was kid. In fact, I'm gonna take a leap of faith and say that I would still love this movie today. You know, in the way that one loves The Never Ending Story. But seriously, this movie was my jam. [If I were to say things were my jam, things that weren't songs of course.] The outfits, the money, the ridiculousness of it all. I knew it was ridiculous even when I was a kid, but that don't stop a girl from her true love. And my true love is Shelley Long in khaki and gold lame. [I can't seem to get the accent over the 'e' - I'm sure you're aware I'm not calling Shelley Long lame, as in boring. Not possible.]

On a side note, I blame Troop Beverly Hills for my incessant want to go camping in swanky hotel rooms.

[Disclaimer: Not the best video, but I thought it was the most thorough of those provided. Plus I figured most of you won't even watch it anyway.]

That's it. We need a double feature of Troop Beverly Hills and Newsies STAT. (The number of great hats in those two movies is staggering.)

I'm also shocked that you didn't know about Jenny Lewis and this movie, Laura. Tsk tsk!

Oh, Lara. I am so ashamed!

Seriously, how did you not know that??? Also, the guy from Rilo Kiley was in the Nickelodeon series Salute Your Shorts.

I know, I know! I actually learned that the same time I learned about Jenny Lewis, but I thought one admission was enough. =)
