"For something that looked as potentially stupid as it did in the trailers, you'll be laughing a heck of a lot.
Thematically, it's also a lot smarter than most comedies of its type. Anna Faris is really funny."
Micheal Dance THE CINEMA SOURCE
"Strictly for blondes who like pink, this ultra girlie chick flick meets the criteria for its target audience with likeable characters searching for acceptance as they are. If you take the film on its own level, it is a lot of fun, and teenage girls. It's all pretty pink and predictable."
Louise Keller URBAN CINEFILE
"Faris fans should see it for her showcase, and nonfans might convert by the end. In "The House Bunny", Anna Faris looks significantly more glammed up than when she came into movies as the star of "Scary Movie". Years of scene-stealing in both indie movies and lowbrow comedies have refined Faris's approachable goofiness, and she finds an original, star-quality approach to playing a cheesy sex bomb. Emma Stone plays Natalie, the girls' ringleader, and finds the right note of believable nerdy awkwardness. As in "Superbad", you can almost believe she's geeky and down-to-earth."
Jesse Hassenger FILMCRITIC
"A rare female-driven light entertainment that emphasizes comedy over romance. Does serve as a solid showcase for the Goldie Hawn meets Jennifer Coolidge charm of Faris."
Geoff Berkshire METROMIX
"Anna Faris has been the saving grace of some truly terrible films, like "Scary Movie" and "The Hot Chick." When you get beyond her adorable looks, Faris is a hilarious comic actress. What sells the movie is not only the eye candy, but the fact that Faris is so funny."
Daniel M. Kimmel WORCESTER TELEGRAM & GAZETTE
"Anna Farris is so perfect in the title role that she alone makes this a movie worth watching. Sometimes the casting of a
certain actor in a role elevates a movie from ordinary to special. Such is the case with the casting of Anna Farris as "The
House Bunny". Anna Farris is perfect as the not so dumb blonde heroine of the film."|
Jackie K Cooper JACKIECOOPER.COM
"Formulaic but fun, thanks to Faris. The young actress oozes charm in the right role and when she's on, you can't take your eyes off her. This is lightweight fare and its audience knows a good date movie when it sees one."
Charles Koplinski ILLINOIS TIMES
"It's a bit derivative, but issues of originality aside, I've got to admit that I found this late-summer comedy to be quite charming, and frequently very funny. As good as the cast is as a whole, this is really Anna Faris’ movie, and she is delightful to watch."
Sean McBride SEAN THE MOVIE GUY
"Puts a cheerful spin on its many cliches. This particular wheel hasn't been reinvented, but at least it gets a nice fresh coat of bubblegum-pink paint and a star to pilot it with aplomb."
Nathan Lee NEW YORK TIMES
"Not every young actress can carry an entire movie on her own shoulders, and even fewer can pull it off when the story is so forumlaic. Happily for this silly but endearing comedy about a cast-off Playboy Bunny who finds herself playing house mother to a dying sorority sisters, Anna Faris is that rare commodity. She's a true star."
