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.
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. Faris is a competent comedic lead actress (though she probably shouldn't venture very far from the comedy tree), and carries the movie, despite the fact that she's no Reese Witherspoon.
If you're in the mood for funny but formulaic, then this one's for you.
Shelley: Yes, I think I'll have the mahi-mahi, but can I get it with just one mahi?
