Phyllis Nefler (Long), a Beverly Hills wife going through a divorce with her lawyer-entrepreneur husband Fred (Nelson), decides to deal with it by becoming the leader of the unruly local troop of the Wilderness Girls (an allusion to the real Girl Scouts of the USA), of which her daughter, Hannah (Jenny Lewis), is a member. Her Beverly Hills sensibilities result in a change in the program for the girls in her troop, who are all the children of socialites, to get them more interested in the program. 
Phyllis demonstrates an unwavering commitment to the girls' well-being (although at one point she tries to quit as troop leader, believing she has failed the girls, but they convince her to stay), by showing an interest in the girls while many of their wealthy parents neglect them. 
She also shows that she is not as vapid as one would at first think: she is unfailingly nice to everyone and shows that despite her extravagant lifestyle that she knows money isn't everything — friendship is more important.
