Shelley is living a carefree life until a rival gets her tossed out of the Playboy Mansion. With nowhere to go, fate delivers her to the sorority girls from Zeta Alpha Zeta. Unless they can sign a new pledge class, the seven socially clueless women will lose their house to the scheming girls of Phi Iota Mu. In order to accomplish their goal, they need Shelley to teach them the ways of makeup and men; at the same time, Shelley needs some of what the Zetas have -- a sense of individuality. The combination leads all the girls to learn how to stop pretending and start being themselves.
Comedy - This is a silly comedy aimed at an older teen/young adult audience,
particularly females, though there is appeal for everyone. Fans of
Anna Faris will not be disappointed as this is basically a one-woman
show for her comic talents. There is some suggestive humor.
OPINION OVERVIEW The following is the original "What's Worth
Watching" write-up for this movie.
Based on a theater exit polling of 114 moviegoers:
TEENS:Both males and females loved "The House Bunny." There are lots of female reviews and only a small percentage rated it as low as "Good/Average." When that's the "lowest" review and over half rated it "Fantastic," this is a movie that you don't want to miss.
TWENTYSOMETHINGS:The reviews dropped quite a bit from teens. There are only a few male reviews and they rated it average to above average, which is decent but certainly not great. The thirteen female reviews also aren't very high. Only about half truly enjoyed "The House Bunny." The remaining half rated it average, with a few rating it below average. If you go in expecting a silly little comedy then you will likely be satisfied. However, a lower priced matinee might be a good choice.
ADULTS:The adult reviews are pretty good. Over three-quarters of the males truly enjoyed "The House Bunny." Same goes for the females. Unfortunately, a fair number of both genders rated it low to very low. If you simply believe the previews and go in knowing that this is going to be a very silly comedy and don't expect too much then you will likely be one of those who enjoy "The House Bunny." (I did.)
