Bunny gets tricked into leaving The Mansion and ends up as House Mother to a lovable collection of losers at Zeta house.

Not a bad movie. Sadly someone at Happy Madison productions didn't trust a simple and enjoyable premise and had to pile on one stupid sight gag after another. If the situation was amusing it got buried under an avalanche of juvenile nonsense. A number of engaging performances. Cute idea. Sadly not trusted by the producers.

The House Rat.

The House Bunny (2008): Dir: Fred Wolf / Cast: Anna Faris, Emma Stone, Colin Hanks, Kat Dennings, Katharine McPhee: Misfire comedy about upper class. Anna Faris plays a Playboy Bunny who is suddenly kicked out of the Playboy Mansion due to sabotage by a jealous playmate. She ends up at a misfit sorority house where she is to teach these girls how to be beautiful and fit in. Premise is rushed and structure is predictable with an embarrassing conclusion. Director Fred Wolf shoots some nice scenery but this whole premise has been done countless times and it is every bit as boring this time out. Anna Faris can be hilarious for anyone who has seen Scary Movie, but as the dimwit Playboy blonde the role is strictly a xerox of others who have traveled the same script. Emma Stone and Kat Dennings are presented as ugly when they're not. That is exactly what is wrong with this junk. They do up ponytails, piercings, heavy eye makeup, and overalls in claims of ugliness, then unveil these lovely ladies who were beautiful to begin with. Let's be frank here. Emma Stone, Kat Dennings and Katharine McPhee are hot as frig and sabotaging their appearance doesn't change that. Colin Hanks is flat as the boyfriend whose function is to attract Faris. All is well that ends well but this film doesn't end soon enough. It takes more paint than the sorority house to make this phony comedy look attractive. Score: 3 / 10

This review comes with instructions

This is a belated review, entered in 2015 after a second viewing.

Here are your instructions: If you have seen the movie and are looking for validation, and you 'get' the rating (6) skip the review. You don't need it.

Otherwise, if you are newbie or have a different view, you can proceed to these comments:

1. OMG. It's as if a couple of writers had taken a week off to "map" the arc of Faris' career (which was pretty solid UP TO THAT POINT!) and concluded, hey, she can do it, she can carry an entire wacky comedy on her own, she has the looks, she has the talent, and no has ever given her a chance. So let's do it.

2. Above, I explained how this film came into being. What I neglected to add was what happened next. The script. It looks like it did not get beyond the first draft. It reads like it did not get beyond the crayon stage. It contains lines like "the eyes are the nipples of the face." Having spent all their energy deciding if Anna could do this film (and yes, she could have done it, she did do it, and it is a pity she did not have better material) there seems to have been no time or budget left for a proper script. Anna was sent into battle with no live ammo. The rest is history.

3. There an Amanda Bynes film called Sydney White which is very similar. Here is the thing. Side by side, compared one to the other, the Bynes film becomes an amalgam of Citizen Kane and Mean Girls. Not that it is so great (it is actually pretty good, but making a point here!) but simply that House Bunny is so bad.

4. Bottom line, for Faris' fans only, and I know there are a lot of you. She tried. But she was fighting impossible odds. But she tried.
