The result isn't very funny, and its sexual politics are as muddled as you'd expect, but Faris is sweet and likable as the sort of wise dumbbell Judy Holliday used to play.

This silly comedy has a few decent jokes in its otherwise dim screenplay. However, its parody is as toothless as Hefner probably is by now.
October 10, 2008
Less than awesome.
October 10, 2008
But there is a lunatic sense of adventure about Fred Wolf's saucy comedy, and it smothers all sorts of unforgiveable sins.

This aims for 'Legally Blonde'/'Mean Girls' status, but ends up being a throwaway, if entertaining, plea for casting directors to start taking Faris more seriously.

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.
September 26, 2008
The film's only noteworthy features prove to be the scenes inside the Playboy mansion, where a wrinkled Hugh Hefner shows up, doing his weary best to put in a credible performance as himself.
September 26, 2008
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.

[Faris] gives an A performance in the kind of farce from which she's more than ready to graduate.

The House Bunny gets the difference between being openhearted and empty-headed.
August 22, 2008
The criminal waste of Faris' comedic gifts should have half of Hollywood locked up.

Puts a cheerful spin on its many cliches. This particular wheel hasn't been reinvented, but at least it gets a nice fresh coat of bubblegum-pink paint and a star to pilot it with aplomb.

House Bunny's Legally Blonde roots show.
August 22, 2008
100 percent of the laughs come courtesy of Faris, who's particularly good in the early going, when her babe-in-the-woods act reaches Homer Simpson-like heights of comic obliviousness. As usual, the movie eventually lets her down.
August 22, 2008
The House Bunny may be what some boys like, but there are doubtless moviegoers out there of both sexes who would like to see Faris hop into some decent onscreen material.
August 22, 2008
Let's hope Anna Faris' next project looks past her outer beauty and unleashes her inner weirdo.
August 22, 2008
The plot is beyond predictable. Seriously, write down every scene from Legally Blonde and Revenge of the Nerds on index cards, shuffle and then deal your movie.
August 22, 2008
[A] hodgepodge of unfunny, sophomoric humor and PG-13 T&A, frosted by a sheen of appallingly nauseous 'drama.'
