The House Bunny

A Playboy bunny (Anna Faris) celebrates her 27th birthday with a bash at the mansion and the next morning receives a letter from Hugh Hefner asking her to move out; with nowhere to go, she becomes house mother to a loser sorority and begins tutoring her ugly ducklings in what boys like. The filming sounds as uneasy as an eighth-grade dance: a script by Kirsten Smith and Karen McCullah Lutz (Legally Blonde) was bankrolled by the drooling boys' club at Adam Sandler's Happy Madison Productions, which assigned Fred Wolf to direct but women to all the other key positions. The result isn't very funny, and its sexual politics are as muddled as you'd expect, but Faris is sweet and likable as the sort of wise dumbbell Judy Holliday used to play. With Colin Hanks and Beverly D'Angelo. PG-13, 97 min.
