Slums of Beverly Hills

Director: Tamara Jenkins
Year Released: 1998
Rating: 1.0

A chesty young teen (Natasha Lyonne) travels with her financially strapped Dad (Alan Arkin) and two brothers around Beverly Hills, scurrying from run-down apartment to run-down apartment. Not much going on in here, actually: when it isn't making crude jokes about vibrators, menstruation or tits it's trying for some sweet coming-of-age story. Lyonne and Arkin are fine, but just like its 70's décor and outfits it's just too artificial and gaudy.
