The House Bunny is the first female-led film to come out of Adam Sandler's production company, Happy Madison. In it, Anna Faris plays idiot savant/Playboy Playmate Shelley Darlingson. When an evil, scheming bunny successfully throws Shelley out of the Playboy Mansion, she's forced to consider a different career trajectory: that of house mother to a sorority of misfits.
Emma Stone plays Natalie, the president of the woefully under-pledged Zeta Alpha Zeta, and I have to interrupt my own sentence to interject that Emma Stone is so freaking adorable I can't even stand it. She's a girl who looks like Lindsay Lohan, and she has Michael Cera's comedic timing, and she references Battlestar Galactica? I would very much like for her to come over and braid my hair while we make cupcakes and play the Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic role-playing game. But I digress.
So anyway, Zeta Alpha Zeta is in danger of being shut down due to a lack of pledge interest, presumably because the sole remaining seven sorority sisters are—the adorable Emma Stone notwithstanding—a bunch of freaky weirdos. So along comes Shelley to teach them how to look hot, be popular, and meet boys. In turn, Shelley learns how to be a real live person with actual thoughts and ideas.
The House Bunny is about as formulaic as it comes, ripping off Revenge of the Nerds and Animal House, and probably because it's written by the team behind Legally Blonde, it reeks of that film's ditzy lead character, too. Still, in terms of Adam Sandler-related comedies, I guess The House Bunny is more Happy Gilmore than You Don't Mess with the Zohan—which basically means this movie is pretty enjoyable, especially if you are approximately 19 to 22 years old and/or a wee bit high.
