Storyline

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 <jhailey@hotmail.com>

When she finally catches up to Steve the brace it is no longer behind her. Then when it zooms up to Shelly, you cannot see the brace in the direction she's looking. See more »

Quotes

Shelley: I don't think he likes me. He didn't fall for any of my tricks.
Natalie: That's impossible. Your tricks always work.
Shelley: I did sexy. I did other guys want me. I worked every angle in the book but, I don't know, he just stared.
Natalie: What if Oliver is one of those guys who wants to have, like, a conversation with a girl before he hooks up with her.
Shelley: He's gay?

Silly with a lot of clichés, but Faris is fun to watch.
12 February 2011 | by rmvieiraSee all my reviews

Don't expect too much of The House Bunny. It's just another teen movie that you can definitely judge by its cover. It's basically a silly story of a playboy bunny that is kicked off the Playboy Mansion and has really nothing to hold on to - and has to start over. The plot line is very simple and the movie is very predictable with loads of clichés.

Anna Faris' performance is the only thing that can save this movie. She's funny and can really get into a character, even though this role seemed like her roles on the Scary Movie series, playing a dumb and shallow girl. Only hotter and blond this time.

Watch this if you want a very light movie with nothing special about it. Almost good for a rainy Sunday afternoon. Thankfully it's not a long movie.
