Pack your bags, but leave your inhibitions behind, as you move up to this star-studded comedy of outrageous proportions that's "riskier and funnier than the rest" (Los Angeles Magazine). On the road to womanhood in the '70s, Vivian (Natasha Lyonne) is encountering two big bumps: her strangely nomadic family - always on the move, yet desperate to stay in the Beverly Hills school district - and her blossoming sexuality. Add Viv's vivacious visiting cousin (Marisa Tomei) to the mix, and you've got an explosive coming-of-age story that proves you don't have to be rich to have first-class fun. Also-starring Alan Arkin, Carl Reiner, Rita Moreno and Jessica Walter, Slums Of Beverly Hills is blessed with "laughs and charm" (USA Today), as well as "biting originality and a terrific ensemble" (The Hollywood Reporter).
