Anna Faris is nude in House Bunny

Rated a Very Helpful Review

Pros:Funny moments, Anna Faris and Kat Dennings are very pretty

Cons:Some stale laughs, kind of predictable

The Bottom Line: House Bunny is entertaining enough, and Anna Faris’s nude butt makes up for any mediocrity the film may have


Plot Details: This opinion reveals major details about the movie's plot.



the plot

The story is about an orphan named Shelly who kind of started off life as an ugly duckling.  The day she changed into a beautiful swan is when she noticed people started treating her differently.  She was invited to live at the Playboy Mansion by Hugh Hefner, and she lived a happy life between some small pictorials here and there, but she dreamed of becoming a playmate of the month.  On her 27th birthday, she had a feeling that she was going to get news of her dream being realized when she received a note from Heff.  Instead, she found out that she was asked to leave the mansion by Heff himself.

After living in her car for a night, she found sorority row and on it she fell in with the Zeta girls when she found out that they needed a housemother.  They accepted her in, but Zeta was not without their problems.  They of course are the misfits of sorority row and if they are unable to attract at least 30 new pledges by a nearing due date, they lose their charter, and they lose their house.  Shelly feels that with her experience at the Playboy Mansion, and the problem that these girls are having is a match made in heaven.  She is sure that she could help them, and it looks like she will.  But the neighboring Phi lota Mus has other ideas for the Zeta house and will stop at nothing to make sure that the Zeta's fail.


the breakdown

Sexy actress Anna Faris must be used to playing the ditzy blonde in her movies, but it may be possible that Shelly Darlingson is the most dimwitted of all.  Her character Shelly has grown up the second half of her life in the Playboy Mansion, where she was finally accepted and welcomed.  So, it's no wonder that the priorities in her life have mostly to do with make-up, glamour and high heels.  Faris as Shelly has some real funny scenes and a couple of great one-liners.  When she was helping the Zeta girls with their make-up for instance, she let them know how important it was to accent the eyes, as they "are the nipples of the face".  I'm surprised that lines like that didn't catch on more in pop culture.  Faris also seems to be in the best shape of her life, and she has a brief nude scene where she bears her butt.  At first, I thought that this must be a body double, since we only see her back initially.  Yet after she turned her head, we see that it is clearly Anna in all her glory.  It was my favorite part of the film.

Emma Stone is an actress that I haven't really noticed before the day I viewed this movie, but funnily on that day, she was in every movie I watched.  First, I decided to put on The Rocker, which was hilarious, then I was in such a mood to laugh some more, I decided on The House Bunny and here she was again.  Later that night I caught the end of Superbad, and she was in that one as well.  The Zeta girls were the "losers" of sorority row, mainly due to their nerdiness and homeliness.  They were the rejects, and while the make-up department did a pretty good job of concealing Kat Dennings beauty with no make-up and a multi-pierced face, Emma Stone's character Natalie wasn't as convincing.  It was easy to see that she was very attractive behind her sexy glasses.  This is always a beef I have with movies, where I have to pretend that something is there on the screen when it isn't, and more often than not it has to do with someone's looks. 

This movie is a Happy Madison production (Adam Sandler), and the message is pretty much the same as most of his movies where even the "social rejects" have the capacity inside them to be heroes or at least inspirational to the "normal folks".  This is basically where the predictability begins and ends, because many of the laughs within the film caught me off guard some of the time.  My guess is because the script was written by two women, and the humor was very female - something that we don't see usually, and it was a welcome change.  I think it helps the film that it was written from the female point of view, especially from the raunchy womanly side where many of the laughs were presented here. 

The movie is rated PG-13 for Anna's hiney, one F-bomb, and some other adult themes and language.  It's a good idea to keep this out of reach of the younger kids.  This may be a predictable ‘nerds are cool' flick, but there are enough of the funny moments where it's easy to recommend this.  Go out and buy the blu-ray or DVD of this movie, you won't regret it.
