Rotten: It's computer-written stuff, stiffly directed by first-timer Fred Wolf, but it's light and fun and sports a decent quota of passable gags.

Anna Faris leads a pack of female outcasts in a revolution against the usual college and social hierarchy types who don't like nonconformity from their wimmen critters. Her surprise rebuttal? Total capitulation, which means all the "ugly" women get perms. So , if there's no real surprises here, we're left with a charisma package and, as such, its not bad.

The acting talent in The House Bunny is amazing for a chick flick but the weak plot is a big distraction and the humour and script is a bit too mild for the premise.

This movie is neither great nor is it terrible. It's really not all that remarkable in any kind of capacity. It is watchable though. I will give it that. It's actually better than I thought it would be. I only watched it because I was bored, it was on TV, because I and couldn't get compeleld to work on my Master's seminar paper because I really suck. I chuckled a few times, grinned a lot, and had a nice good laugh or two with a couple of scens, but, even though this movie is funnier than I thought, it's still really not all that funny. This is mostly because of the bad script and lackluster direction. Anna Faris has never been a great actress, but she's okay here, and is fun to watch, even if just a little bit of the airhead schtick goes a very long way. Emma Stone is pretty good, but I'm biased because I'm in love with her. I'd think she's a good actress even if I wasn't really into her, though. Kat Dennings and Rumer Willis are also not too bad. I like Christopher McDonald and Beverly D'Angelo, but they're both underused here and have been far better in past roles. I'm okay with the fact that htis movie is almost completely run of the mill and predictable, because we need movies like this to keep the balance of things. I would love it if there wasn't so much mediocre generic garbage like this around, but I'm not in charge. Could this movie have been a lot better and far more ocmpetent? Of course. I'm not the target audience, but even if I was I'd still say the same thing. If you need a few laughs and have nothing else to do, shut the brain off, have a few drinks, and give this a shot.
