"Manhole. I like that word. Manhole."
I really can't understand why I bothered to waste 90 minutes of my life for this unfunny 'Legally Blonde' / 'Nerds' copycat. I, once again, had troubles to not push the stop button but, like I've mentioned in my earlier reviews, I always give a chance to every movie I see.
Anna Faris, who without a doubt is cute as hell, plays a Playboy bunny who gets kicked out of Hef's mansion after her 27th birthday. But this wasn't Hef's choice, as she was set up by another bunny. So, she finds herself in a sorority house full of nerds. And of course, they have rivals that are beautiful as fuck and they have to compete against each other and the nerds become beautiful and lose their inner beauty and bla bla fucking BLA!! Fuck me with rusty nails!
Anna Faris tries to save the movie from its inevitable doom. She even gives us "funny" frog voices as she memorizes names. There are a couple of good parody scenes of 'Forrest Gump' and the legendary Marilyn Monroe steam scene but there are no miracle workers here. The script is so badly written with terrible pacing problems and a totally unnecessary love story. Why couldn't they give us nude Playboy bunnies instead. Oh yeah, Playboy have their own channel for that...
So, did I like 'The House Bunny'? Try to guess... Yes, I love beautiful women as any other guy. Why couldn't the filmmakers locate the story entirely to the Playboy mansion? That could've been a lot funnier but they just had to mess it up. I did not laugh even once, didn't even chuckle. 'The House Bunny' is one of the unfunniest movies I've ever seen.
