The House Bunny Review
Anna Faris goes from mediocre teenage actress in ‘Scary Movie’ to talented young woman in ‘The House Bunny’. Directed quite obviously by Adam Sandler, if you enjoy naked women and half-hearted jokes – you will love this film.
Although this film was nothing short of an attempt to recreate the success of ‘Legally Blonde’ and other mindless comedies. Anna Faris made the character her own and was looking in very good shape whilst doing so.
The plotline is extremely basic – At twenty-seven years old, the playboy bunny Shelly (played by Faris) was unexpectedly thrown out of the playboy mansion. She then becomes a house mother to a university sorority, who are rather typically a group of misfits. Shelly therefore changes them all into bunny-esque type girls in order to get the boys on the campus to like them. The whole film has a very predictable edge to it.
‘The house bunny’ is compromised of half amusing jokes and some witty one liners, although not a wide range of people would find this film remotely funny. If you like ‘Mean Girls’ and ‘Legally Blonde’ you will enjoy this film, but it does not require a lot of thought throughout.
Karen McCullah Lutz who produces this film, also produces films such as ’10 things I hate about you’ and ‘Mean Girls’ – these films have been very successful and although ‘The House Bunny’ is an O.K film, it does not reach the standards of these famously ‘girly’ films.
Although teenage girls would love this and find it refreshingly familiar, boys and men alike only have the fact that Anna Faris as well as many other half naked playboy bunnies and bending and stretching simultaneously at every opportunity. But, the men do not get all the eye candy, eighty-two year old Hugh Hefner makes some shocking cameos throughout, so there is always something for the girls!
