The House Bunny

Yeah, I saw it. So what? Sometimes there’s nothing else out there except a Ben Stiller movie that’s getting decent reviews but you hate him so, so much you’ve vowed never to see another of his movies again. So yeah, I saw The House Bunny.

Bunny comes to us from director Fred Wolf (who also wrote and directed 2008′s Strange Wilderness, which received the dubious honor of a 0% rating on rottentomatoes…).  The story follows Shelley, a Playboy bunny kicked out of the Playboy mansion when she turns 27.  Without any direction in her life, she stumbles into the world of college sororities and fraternities, decides to become a house mom, and whips a bunch of misfit co-eds into slightly prettier, more shallow versions of themselves.

This film would be a complete loss if it weren’t for it’s star Anna Faris, who is completely hilarious.  Even though they beat some of the funnier jokes to death, her comedic timing is pitch perfect, and I laughed out loud almost every time she opened her mouth (at least until the last 30 minutes when the film just completely falls flat on its face). It’s really a miracle what she can do with such a shite script. She is the only reason (if there are any) to see this flick.

Wait for the DVD on this one.

    It sounds like she should be cast in better movies. She was the only reason to see Just Friends, too. Think of what she could do in well-written, well-directed Flicks!

    Here’s the deal. I won’t wait for this to come out on DVD to watch it. Take that, Blake.
