Synopsis from DVD Cover:
When the mansion's favorite bunny, Shelley (Anna Faris), is kicked out of the hottest house in town, she gets lost in the wilderness of Beverly Hills. But when she stumbles into the sorriest sorority, Zeta Alpha Zeta, she finds a home where she can finally put her talents to good use. Then when Shelley meets a beau she'd like to tie on for good, she really has something to flirt for and thinks she might have a chance at life on the outside. Now the race is on to make over the girls and make Zeta the hottest house before the University shuts them down. Move in with The House Bunny and laugh your tail off!

Quick Review:
Think "Revenge of the Nerds" for girls. With a Playboy Bunny. And less gross out humor and boy stuff. "The House Bunny" - with a title that actually references "Bunny" - is actually just a sweet little comedy with not a whole lot of the Greek society debauchery of all those Eighties classics. It's still got that "losers win" thing going for it, though, and that just always seems to work.

Shelley Darlington (Anna Faris) lived out her childhood days as an orphan in an orphanage, until one day, at the age of 18, she was "adopted" by the "family" at the Playboy Mansion. Years go by in a happy, sexy haze until, out of the blue, Shelley is devastated when, on her 27th birthday, she is handed a "Dear Shelley" letter from Hugh and tossed out on the street, past her Bunny prime. Happy coincidences abound, however, and down the street, the Zeta sorority, a small group of misfit girls, is about to lose their charter and their house. Enter new housemother Shelley, on a mission full of makeovers and house saving - with just a bit of romance thrown in to boot.

"The House Bunny" is like whipped cream, all light and fluffy and pleasant. Everything about it is familiar-the clashes between cliques, the goofy girl is actually hot transformations, the dumb but loveable blonde - but Faris is pulls it off, and really is a comedy star in the making. We all know from the first scene how it's all going to end, but even the Hail Mary last few minutes scene in the boardroom made me all nostalgic. Super nerdgirl Natalie (Emma Stone), definitely a stand-out, is a hoot as she gets all dreamy-eyed about her fundraising ideas, or about how fun it sounds to tie your shoes together and toss them over telephone lines. I felt like I was back in the world where Phoebe Cates might pop in and take off her bikini or Sean Penn might show up stoned (and not disgruntled) - as an homage to 80s teen flicks, this had less sex and less booze, but was spot on at its underdog-loving heart.

There's a bunch of extra stuff in the Special Features section, and it's all mildly fun. Tons of featurettes (too many to list separately by name) let us in on everything from Faris's workout routine to some behind the scenes looks at the Hef and his mansion. There are some Deleted Scenes (one of which is strangely sad), bits about the individual characters, and a music video by Katharine McPhee for "I Know What Boys Like."

In Conclusion:
A funnier, sweeter movie than one might think, "The House Bunny" isn't going to change the world, but Anna Faris is a great comic, and there's much here to smile about.
