While The House Bunny is sure to appeal more to the female demographic, at least the guys who get dragged into watching this particular chick flick by their dates can feel solace in knowing that it could be a whole lot worse.

This film from the Adam Sandler fun factory starts with a series of obnoxious, dated stereotypes, and never quite flips them into something positive.

[A] hodgepodge of unfunny, sophomoric humor and PG-13 T&A, frosted by a sheen of appallingly nauseous 'drama.'

The screenplay inflicts a little more injury on Faris than it intends to by committing the very sins it half-heartedly attempts to parody.

It's a movie that wastes the talents of up-and-comers (Emma Stone from Superbad), rising stars (the sublimely funny -- in other movies -- Anna Faris) and talented vets (Beverly D'Angelo, looking like she wishes she were anywhere else) alike.

Anna Faris is one of the funniest actresses in movies today, but you wouldn't know it from the wretched The House Bunny.

As much as the word 'vapid' is thrown around in the movie, it's also the perfect adjective to describe it. There are much better comedies out there right now to waste time on this one.

I laughed about a dozen times during The House Bunny, always because of Anna Faris. I cringed at The House Bunny about 50 times, always because of everything else.

Bunny is caged in some outdated, male-centric world, where sexy women are bimbos, smart women are frumps and all are willing to change themselves to score guys.

A slapdash affair largely lacking in laughs.

Faris gives her all to the role, finally getting her chance to carry a movie instead of forever being typecast as the supporting girl. But the script just isn't there.

This puerile so-called comedy is a complete waste of the talents of Anna Faris, a cheeky beauty who is obviously channelling Marilyn Monroe - God forbid a remake of Some Like it Hot is in the works.

It takes sexism to a new low, and it manages to attack women in the last place on earth where they continue to outperform men -- in universities.

It's computer-written stuff, stiffly directed by first-timer Fred Wolf, but it's light and fun and sports a decent quota of passable gags.

If you left Legally Blonde and Revenge of the Nerds DVDs in a darkened room for long enough, something like House Bunny would eventually totter out.

What else can you say about a movie when Christopher McDonald counting to 30 is the funniest thing that happens in it?

...there's a reason the movie's impossible not to like, and her name is Anna Faris...

Faris's Marilyn Monroe-inspired breathy delivery feels forced and gets old fast. Only the scene-stealing Emma Stone shows any promise.
