Finding family. Shelley Darlingson was raised in an orphanage, finally happy when she blossoms into a fox and moves into the Playboy Mansion. Unfortunately, she's summarily expelled on her 27th birthday(she's now too old). In desperation she takes a job as house mother for a sorority of misfits losing their house for lack of members. They have but a few months to find 30 pledges, or a sorority of mean girls will take over their place. Shelley figures that girls will pledge a house that boys find interesting, so she sets out to make the Zetas alluring, not act too smart, and host great parties. Can she succeed, and what about her own makeover? Sabotage is everywhere, plus it's hard to be one's self.Written by
Anna Faris later did a clothed cover for Playboy, but her publicist wouldn't allow her to do it naked. See more »
During the scene when the sorority girls are on the lawn talking about boys, Emma Stone's character Natalie has her glasses on for most of the scene, but for one shot back to her they are off, and then the cut back scene they are magically back on again without her arms even moving. See more »
You given any thought to who you might be voting for?
I definitely won't listen to what Simon says, he is just so mean. I usually always agree with Paula and Randy.
Oh, you meant the president.

Brains do not need to be engaged for this movie. But it does produce a few wonderful - and hilarious - surprises that make it a very enjoyable 90 minutes.
One is Anna Farris, who does a great twist on the archetypal dizzy blonde beloved of Hollywood since time immemorial.
But the real kickers are the jarring one-liners that pepper an otherwise sweet and predictable film. Several reduced this viewer to paroxysms of laughter, tears rolling down cheeks, beverage spurting across the room.
These moments, when they arrive, are so unexpected that the effect is one of firmly-flicked kipper on unprotected jowl. And none are in the "gross-out" style that one might have expected in a film of this genre.
Very bunny indeed.
