A serious look at great fun.
7 November 1999 | by (Los Angeles, CA USA) – See all my reviews

The early days of both Gloria Steinham and Kirsty Alley merge nicely in this glossy look at Bunny Life in a Bunny Hutch. Gloria actually did became a Playboy Bunny for a time in order to do an article, Kirsty became Gloria, and both were terrific Bunnies. The story itself is sad and funny and gives the audience a lot to think about. The photography, the sets, and especially the costumes are fabulous. The acting is better than later efforts of the same actors. It raised my consciousness somewhat...I no longer long to wear long ears!
