The HOUSE BUNNY

When Playboy bunny Shelley (Anna Faris) is tossed out of the mansion, she has nowhere to go until she falls in with the sorority girls from Zeta Alpha Zeta. The members of the sorority - possibly the seven most socially clueless women on the planet - are about to lose their house. They need a dose of what only the eternally bubbly Shelley can provide - but they will each learn on their own to stop pretending to be what others want them to be and start being themselves.

Watch this if you liked: "Legally Blonde", "The Hot Chick"

Anna Faris poses once again as the funny, bubbly, dumb blonde that we all are too familiar with in the latest sexy comedy "The House Bunny". Her role as Shelley fits her like a shoe, as both actress and character bind together as one with every gasp of excitement, awkward pause and funny comment. Not only did Anna do her fair share of jokes, Emma Stone made her humour known by playing the super-smart, but boy clueless, Natalie. She acts naturally as how a nerdy girl should act as she gets excited, then talks animatedly about facts which always manages to squeeze out a few pent up giggles.

The story is essentially about a Playboy Bunny who gets kicked out of Playboy Mansion for being supposedly "old". Apparently, being a 27-year-old is like 59 in bunny years - well at least it's not as bad as dog years! Fate then brings her to teach an awkward group of college girls from the sorority house called Zeta about the opposite sex as they try to become popular enough to reach the minimum amount of 30 pledges needed to keep their sorority house. By being popular, it means to dress up as sexily as you can to get the attention of the opposite sex.

One of the funniest characters to watch out for is Carrie Mae played by Dana Goodman as she tried twice to get a guy's attention in a club with her "kinky" pick up lines and "seductive" movements. She sure did grab his attention, but in a way that will certainly leave you wanting her to hit on more guys.

Packed with comical lines, it definitely makes an entertaining watch (if you're not so much into the skimpily clad girls or over-revealing cleavages on offer). The story is stitched together with hilarious lines such as "I love charity. One time, I even let Bob Saget grind on me" and "The eyes are the nipples of the face".

Clearly in the end, the moral of the story is - to be yourself; and it's what's on the inside that matters. This obvious lesson brought up by Shelley absolutely contradicts the first three quarters of the movie as it focuses on the girls baring their breasts and looking like prostitutes.

Oh well, it is a comedy after all, and a lovely one it is.
