The House Bunny: Geek Girls Gone Wild

Why It's a Geek Movie
Because The House Bunny features every geek's fantasy.  No, not the Playboy Bunny.  The hot geek girl.

What's it About?
Shelley, a Playboy Bunny, is lead to believe that the Hef doesn't want her around the mansion anymore because she's too old (27).  Lost and homeless, she stumbles upon the girls of the ZETA house sorority and becomes their house mother.  These are the unpopular geek girls who need 30 pledges in order to keep their house.  The only way they can get these pledges is if Shelley can teach them how to be awesome.

How to Appreciate It
This movie is one of those heart-warming comedies at which you just have to smile.  A sensitive cynic would come out of this movie puking, but, really, it's all just good fun, good morals and hot chicks.  This is the time to leave your grumpies at the door and just enjoy!

Is it Worth It?
As you may already have guessed, the moral of the story is learning to be yourself and not judge others based on superficial qualifications.  It's probably one of the cheesiest things to come out of Happy Madison Productions... which is saying a lot... but there are plenty of things at which to laugh.  It's refreshing to see good comedy coming from an all-female cast.  Girls cast in movies now-a-days tend to be... well... girly.  They're more serious or sexy, or if they're trying to be funny they're ditzy, but the girls of ZETA house pull off a wide range of comedy that make them seem more real - more like actual girls that you may see every day.

The House Bunny is a light comedy with a gooey caramel center.  Enjoy one today!
