Blue skies, crystal lakes and the sound of tenderfoots gasping for breath as they’re ushered into the most empowering adventure of their young lives by a leader who, otherwise, would never be caught dead in that unflattering shade of green. Julie (Emmy nominee Jessalyn Gilsig, Glee) is a hot-shot real estate agent when unpaid parking tickets land her before a judge as a scofflaw. Her punishment: ninety days of community service as the leader of a ragtag gang of five, aka the Fireflies Scout Troop. The only thing they’re good at is being bested year after year by the Bobcats, prize-snatching uber Scouts infamous for leaving cookie-drive competition in crumbs. A born realtor, Julie sees her girls as fixer-uppers with some natural charm and tons of potential. First mission to prove themselves: a campout contest in the great outdoors. But Julie never counted on such a carnivorous woodland she-creature as Hazel (Samantha Ferris, Supernatural), the Bobcats’ troop leader and quite possibly the most terrifying thing to hit the wilderness. Yet little by little, Julie is seeing a difference in the Fireflies—and in herself as well. Never one for personal relationships, she is actually warming to the attentions of a single father of one of the Fireless. A pint-sized fixer-upper in her own right, Julie is feeling more comfortable in a Fireflies Scout blazer than she thought possible. But the real test of mettle is on the horizon—a conspiring battle of wits, a take-no-prisoners crusade of hard-won ambition where dreams of success can come true. This is the real meaning of teamwork, self-respect, and sisterhood. This is war. We’re talking cookie drive. And while Julie may not know how to survive on pinecones or make a s’more to save her life, with the help of the Fireflies, she will close this deal. Hilarious and heartwarming, Smart Cookies is an endearing comedy of friendship, loyalty, and achieving the things in life that mean the most.
