4.0 out of 5 stars The bunny and the ugly ducklings Feb. 7 2009
By Amanda Richards HALL OF FAME TOP 500 REVIEWER
Once upon a time, there was a little bunny named Shelley. Shelley was bright eyed and bushy tailed, and lived with all the other bunnies in the bunny house.

One day, Shelley received a letter asking her to leave the bunny house. Shelley was very sad, but was determined to find her own way in the big world. She wandered and wondered, until she came across a big house full of ugly ducklings.

Now Shelley was a blonde bunny, and after thinking really hard for a few seconds, she decided to live with the ducklings and help them grow into foxes. She really, really tried her best, and even though she could not stop all the clichés from taking over the rest of the story, they lived relatively happily ever after.

The end.

Short Attention Span Summary (SASS):

1. Anna Faris plays the part of Shelley, a Playboy bunny evicted from the mansion after her 27th birthday party.
2. Hugh Hefner appears as himself
3. Shelley finds herself at the sad, sad sorority house of Zeta Alpha Zeta, inhabited by the likes of Katharine (Idol runner-up) McPhee, Emma (Superbad) Stone and Rumer (Why in the world did I have to inherit my father's chin?) Willis.
4. They need urgent help, and also to get new pledges to save their house
5. Help = Bunny + Makeovers + New wardrobes + Parties
6. Colin (Why aren't I more like my dad?) Hanks is a bland actor playing a bland role, and needs no further mention here.
7. Shelley has to make a big career decision

This is a comedy in the vein of a dumber "Legally Blonde" that's funny most (but not all of) of the time.

2.0 out of 5 stars unintentionally funny Oct. 27 2009
By Brian Maitland TOP 500 REVIEWER
I want to know why there is such a strong ESPN connection here. We see ex-ESPN football analyst (and career NFL backup quarterback as well as being notorious for getting fired due to sexual harassment charges) Sean Salisbury with Matt Leinart (another so far career NFL backup QB but he's parlayed that USC college fame into this cameo role) at the Playboy Mansion early on.

Then ex-ESPN sports anchor Dan Patrick shows up as a cop.

Throw in Hef and the Girls Next Door and it's a veritable party of B-list celebs.

Colin Hanks must have got a nice paycheck to show up in this disaster of a flick.

Hey, I love B movies but this has virtually no laughs. It's basically Legally Blonde redone on campus by worse actors and even worse scriptwriters. It does have a lot of scares (Rumer Willis's face for starters).

What a train wreck and the only saving grace is Emma Stone looks like a talent to watch. She seems the only actress in the bunch who has any comedic sense and timing.

5.0 out of 5 stars Party Bunny Dec 29 2012
By Stella Carrier TOP 100 REVIEWER
I was visiting with family members in Illinois this past week and one of my younger sisters organized a happy movie night. For some reason, I was drawn to choose " The House Bunny" from her collection and I am glad that I did. Anna Faris as the former playboy bunny turned "house mother" and Emma Stone as a "socially progressing sorority sister" contribute to each other's growth during the plot of the movie. Hugh Hefner, Holly Madison, Kendra Wilkinson, and Bridget Marquardt also appear in "The House Bunny." " The House Bunny" is good for those who like comedy films.

4.0 out of 5 stars A funny bunny! Oct. 5 2008
By Daryl B - Published on Amazon.com
When I first heard about this film, I was less than impressed and had no intentions of seeing it. Once, however, I saw the preview at another film, I decided to give it a try and I'm glad I did.

"The House Bunny" is a charming and funny little film starring Anna Faris as Shelly, a playboy bunny who lives a carefree life in Hugh Hefner's mansion. After her 27th birthday, she finds herself suddenly evicted from her perfect life, unaware of how she can make a living. When she stumbles onto a college campus and discovers that sororities slightly resemble her former playful lifestyle, she becomes determined to be the house mother of a failing sorority full of misfits and unpopular girls. Through her determined spirit, willingness to encourage others and using her sexuality in a positive way, Shelley works her magic and helps her girls to become of the belles of sorority row. And in the process, the young women teach Shelly some valuable lessons as well.

Faris gives a good comedic performance, giving the character a sweet, likeable naivety. I liked that the character wasn't bitchy or a diva, simply a kind girl who lived an exotic life but must now adjust to her new situation and envirnoment. The supporting cast is funny but the brunt of the film falls on Faris, who delivers and proves she can carry a film. Notable supporting characters include Rumor Willis (the daugther of Bruce Willis and Demi Moore)former American Idol alum, Kathernine McPhee and Colin Hanks, son of Tom Hanks.

This is a fun date movie and I recommend it as a perfect summer comedy movie. Worth a trip to the theater!

4.0 out of 5 stars THE HOUSE BUNNY', think `Legally Blonde' meets `Revenge of the Nerds'. A hilarious, enjoyable comedy featuring Anna Faris! Dec 13 2008
By Dennis A. Amith (kndy) - Published on Amazon.com
Anna Faris is one of the popular comedic actresses with her roles in "Scary Movie" films but also showed us how versatile of an actress that she is through roles in films such as "Lost in Translation" and "Brokeback Mountain".

But this time, Faris has dual roles as executive producer and actress for "THE HOUSE BUNNY", a comedy film written by the creators of "Legally Blonde" and produced by Happy Madison Productions. And with that being said, if you are a fan of Happy Madison style of films such as "50 First Dates", "Deuce Bigalow" or more recently with films such as "Bedtime Stories", you know that you're getting a fun film that will generate a lot of laughs. But also films that are not meant to be taken seriously. Just sit back and enjoy.

"THE HOUSE BUNNY" features Shelley (Anna Faris), a young orphan who becomes a beautiful model for Playboy and lives in the Playboy mansion. Her dream is to become a Playmate and Miss November. But after celebrating an extravagant 27th birthday at the Playboy mansion highlighted by cameos by professional athletes such as Shaquille O'Neal and Matt Leinart, Shelley receives a letter that she must vacate the Playboy mansion.

Shelley becomes homeless and has some rough luck until she overhears a sorority talking about fashion and she follows them to their home. Not knowing what a sorority house is, she meets the house mothers who pretty much tells her to get lost while one feels sorry for her and tells her to visit another sorority, Zeta Alpha Zeta.

The Zeta Alpha Zeta sorority are a few women who are somewhat nerds, outcasts and are in danger of losing their house because they don't have 30 members. Fortunately for them, Shelley takes up a job to become their house mother and using her sexy body brings the attention to the sorority and hopefully help them get the 30 members that they need but also helping the women discover their inner beauty and to hopefully give them the courage to get a makeover and also meet guys.

Anna Faris really makes this film work. Faris really worked out for the role to make Shelley's part work. Having to wear short shorts and showing off her toned abs and body, it's definitely not a part that I would have imagined her playing but she executes her role convincingly.

Shelley is much more ditsier than Witherspoone's "Legally Blonde" character and because she is quite naive and only exposed to what goes on at the Playboy Mansion, she has an interesting way of viewing life and again, Faris does a great bringing life into her character.

Joining Farris are the Zeta Alpha Zeta sorority girls:

Natalie (played by "Superbad" actress Emma Stone), the leader of Zeta Alpha Zeta who is pretty much the brainiac.

Mona (played by the "40-Year Old Virgin" and "Nick and Norah's Infinity Playlist" Kat Denning), the punk girl who is anti-popular and has piercings all over her face.

Harmony (played by "American Idol" finalist Katharine McPhee), the pregnant sorority member.

Joanne (played by "From Within" actress Rumer Willis), the sorority member who wears a body brace.

Lilly (played by Cheetah Girls member Kiely Williams), the sorority member who is afraid to talk to people.

Carrie Mae (played by Deuce Bigalow: The European Gigalow" actress Dana Goodman), as a scary sorority member who walks with a hunchback.

Tanya (played by Kimberly Makkouk), as the very small member of the group.

And also starring Colin Hanks as Oliver, a normal guy who works at a convalescent home. Shelley happens to be attracted to him but her Playboy way of attracting men by flaunting her body, doesn't seem to work on him, thus with the help of the Zeta Alpha Zeta girls, they teach her how to be smart.

The film also features a pretty strong soundtrack as a lot of the songs are well-known such as "When I Grow Up" by the Pussycat Dolls and "Shut Up and Let Me Go" by the Ting Tings.


The video is featured in 1080p high definition and aspect ratio is 2:40:1. Picture quality was quite vibrant during the outdoor scenes and during dark scenes, I really don't recall seeing much noise during the blacks.


The film is featured in TrueHD 5.1. Although the film is primarily a dialogue film, where the film really gets pumped up audio-wise is during the moments that feature a lot of music.


The Blu-ray edition of "The House Bunny" definitely has a good number of featurettes included.

* House Bunny Style: Make-up/hair/wardrobe documentary on making over the Zeta girls into "Bunnies"
* The Girls of Zeta: A look into the actresses who make up the sorority girls of Zeta and how they bonded on-set
* Calendar Girls: A fun look into the photo shoot for the calendar
* Anna Faris: House Mom: A look at Anna Faris and her character of "Shelley", her infectious smile, fun personality and interactions with others
* Colin Hanks: Mr. Nice Guy
* From Song to Set: Katherine McPhee: A look at the on-set experiences of first-time actress Katharine McPhee
* From Tour Bus to Trailer: Tyson Ritter: A look at the on-set experiences of first-time actor Tyson Ritter
* Look Who Dropped By: Checkout the stars who showed up on-set!
* The Girls Upstairs: Behind the scenes with the real "Girls Next Door"
* Zetas Transformed
* Getting Ready for a Party
* House Bunny Memories
* I Know What Boys Like Music Video by Katharine McPhee
* Deleted Scenes

For me, the featurette with Anna Faris was interesting to watch. Especially to get her take on having to do the dual roles as an executive producer and being the lead actress. Also, learning how she had to really workout for the role and her thoughts of wearing the skimpy outfits. Really good insight into the actual film.

Also, it was great to see the camaraderie of the ladies in the film and how much fun they had shooting the film. There literally are a good number of featurettes that last around five minutes or more on this Blu-ray.

In "Looked Who Dropped By", you get to see the number of talent who had cameos in the film from Shaq, Matt Leinart, former ESPN analyst Sean Sallisbury, sportscaster Dan Patrick and many more. "The Girls Upstairs" features Hugh Heffner and the three Playmates from "Girls Next Door" on set.

As for the deleted scenes, no commentary but there were quite a number of deleted scenes which I agree with the director for cutting out those scenes.

I wish there was a commentary segment featuring Faris but unfortunately there wasn't one. But overall, you do get a good number of special features on the Blu-ray disc and it is BD-Live enabled.

Typically, when I watch a "Happy Madison" produced film, I expect to watch a comedy and just sit back and see how crazy and at times, how moronic some films can be. But with "THE HOUSE BUNNY", I have to admit that I was amazed to see Anna Faris in this role and how she brought this character to life.

Personally, I don't think I can picture any actress making this role happen and so I was very pleased with her performance. As for the overall film, I would call it "Legally Blonde" meets "The Revenge of the Nerds" and to see how the women literally transform themselves to the women no one wants to be around, to the women than the frat boys want to party with.

But with that being said, that scenario can be seen quite negatively to people who do not believe a woman should have to go through a makeover, wear slinky outfits to make things happen for them in college.

For me, many Happy Gilmore produced films are never meant to be taken seriously and for those who approach these comedy films with a lot of seriousness, are probably going to get disappointed. You need to really sit back and just enjoy how far the characters can make you laugh or make you feel embarrassed. It's all fun!

Again, Anna Faris does a great job on this film and really demonstrating her versatility as an actress. Without her, I really don't think this film could have worked. She brought life into the character of Shelley and watching the featurette, she definitely made it fun for the other actresses and they fed off that enthusiasm, The chemistry with Faris and the other actresses worked quite well.

Overall, "THE HOUSE BUNNY" is a fun and enjoyable comedy that is sure to make you laugh and also looks great on Blu-ray.

4.0 out of 5 stars I liked it Dec 31 2008
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Well, I'm embarrassed to admit that I really enjoyed this silly movie. I hadn't intended to see it, but got pushed into watching it with my family. And I liked it better than they did! It was actually very sweet.

The plot, of course, is a cliche. Nerdy sorority is made cool by an ex-bunny. Not original. But it isn't meant to be. This whole thing is just a wonderful frame for the comedic talents of the people involved. We particularly enjoyed the scene where Shelley tries to act like Marilyn Monroe over the steam vent, and gets her knees badly steamed. That is just so silly that you have to laugh.

Also, at my house, we just find it so strange that the series "the girls next door," whose performers are in this film (the Faris role, Shelley, is supposed to be living at the Playboy Mansion as the movie opens), is one of the sweetest shows on TV. We expected trash, and were confounded by pleasant people that we genuinely like. So that predisposed us to like this film, too. There is a certain innocence to the whole thing.

So, I find myself in the position of recommending this film to anyone who enjoys silly comedy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Anna Faris finds herself transforms in House Bunny June 2 2009
By John's Horror Corner - Published on Amazon.com
Anna Faris discovers a facet of method acting? Yes. Not since Christian Bale muscled up in order to one up Leo DiCaprio for the title role in American Psycho has someone altered their body so very dramatically for a role. The previous soft Anna has been replaced by the T-1000 Anna, hotter than ever, and funnier to boot.

As far as goofy comedies go, the writing was good. The plot was cute. The situations were were well-thought out and hilarious.

Shelley (Faris) I plays a wanna-be Playboy bunny who is cast from the Playboy Mansion after her 28th birthday. To put a roof over her head she takes a group of social outcast sorority sisters in need of a house mother under her wing and shows them the ropes of presenting themselves and talking to men. In turn the sisters teach her to an intellectual man (played by Colin Hanks).

The social blunders are numerous and the movie borrows heavily from Sorority Boys, in a good way.

Anna Faris was goofy in the Scary Movie series, good in Waiting, but has truly come into her own here. This is a must see.
