The House Bunny

Critics Consensus

Anna Faris is game, but she can't salvage this middling, formulaic comedy.

Audience Reviews for The House Bunny

It doesn't really matter that Anna Faris is such a great and hilarious actress when she has to deliver unfunny lines in an unfunny comedy that usually goes for the most pedestrian jokes that you can think of and is entirely formulaic and predictable from beginning to end.

Surprisingly sweet and funny. An exiled Playboy bunny finds refuge as a sorority housemother and teaches a ragtag group of girls how to be popular...with mixed results. I wasn't charmed by Anna Faris's dumb blonde routine at first, but she eventually infuses Shelley with strength and depth. Emma Stone is hilariously unhip as the president of the struggling sorority, and Colin Hanks plays an adorable straight man to Shelley's daffy antics at impressing a man of substance and not just a Playboy.

Anna Faris leads a pack of female outcasts in a revolution against the usual college and social hierarchy types who don't like nonconformity from their wimmen critters. Her surprise rebuttal? Total capitulation, which means all the "ugly" women get perms. So , if there's no real surprises here, we're left with a charisma package and, as such, its not bad.

You know i was completely surprised at the giggles I had watching this movie. While not great it was fun in a strange strange way.
