Product Overview

Shelley is living a carefree life until a rival gets her tossed out of the Playboy Mansion. With nowhere to go, fate delivers her to the sorority girls from Zeta Alpha Zeta. Unless they can sign a new pledge class, the seven socially clueless women will lose their house to the scheming girls of Phi Iota Mu. In order to accomplish their goal, they need Shelley to teach them the ways of makeup and men; at the same time, Shelley needs some of what the Zetas have - a sense of individuality. The combination leads all the girls to learn how to stop pretending and start being themselves.

Review The House Bunny has a screenplay written with ten-year olds in mind about a subject that deserves an R-rating. The resulting hodgepodge of unfunny, sophomoric humor and PG-13 T&A, frosted by a sheen of appallingly nauseous "drama," makes for such a noxious brew that it's amazing viewers stay in their seats for the entire production. Then again, it takes absorption of the full 100 minutes for the movie's vomit-inducing power to become evident. The House Bunny isn't the worst movie I have ever seen. In fact, it's not even the worst of 2008. But it's bad enough to warrant a heartfelt warning to potential viewers. One wonders if there's a special place in hell reserved for filmmakers who foist this kind of tripe on the public...In essence, The House Bunny is Revenge of the Nerds with girls, although, by comparison, the quality of this production makes that of the 1984 feature seem like the work of the Royal Shakespeare Company...At a time when so many filmmakers are attempting to do new and interesting things with comedies, a forgettable throw-back like this is intolerable. There's not a single fresh idea or moment present in the entire movie, and watching the predictable comedy unfold is like hearing your uncle tell the same old jokes (that weren't that funny to begin with) for the dozenth time. The House Bunny deserves credit only for reminding viewers what it's like to lose two hours of one's life and get nothing in return.

Review In The House Bunny, Anna Faris looks significantly more glammed up than when she debuted as the star of Scary Movie. In that film, she was stuck in a poor man's Neve Campbell role by design--a spoof of a minor star, a winking knockoff. Faris stayed through the franchise throughout four installments and coming out the other side, she's still playing a bimbo in The House Bunny. This bimbo is Shelley Darlington, a second-string Playboy bunny who has turns 27 without hitting centerfold and is summarily ejected from the Playboy mansion...The best you can say about The House Bunny is it gives Faris a character and a framework and gets out of her way. In this case, that nearly qualifies as high praise. The bare-bones story: Shelley wanders into a run-down sorority house and offers her services as "house mother" to the misfit Zeta girls, whose lack of pledges threatens their chapter's survival. Makeovers, house parties, revenges of nerds, and lessons follow...The next step, of course, is for Faris to bust out of this likable but rickety Sandler-esque wheelhouse. But here's the thing: many of the best comedies don't make room for leading women to create full-bodied comic characters. Think of the roles afforded to Amy Poehler or Kristen Wiig--they're all cameos, mostly, or close to them. It's tempting to knock The House Bunny as the empty space in which Anna Faris performs. But it gives her that space and it's just about enough.

Quotes
John Anderson, Variety A blissfully broad comedy that should catapult Anna Faris into a singular kind of stardom.
Michael Rechtshaffen, The Hollywood Reporter Manages to stand on its own two skyscraper heels thanks to the comic force of nature that is Anna Faris.
Robert Koehler, Christian Science Monitor For all her chops as a dramatic actor, [Faris is] our new Judy Holliday and Goldie Hawn, only even sharper.
