After viewing the trailer for Anna Faris' new comedy The House Bunny for a second time, my review can only be summed up by the immortal words of Han Solo: "I've got a bad feeling about this." You can now check out the trailer above for the Playmate comedy starring Faris as a down-on-her-luck Playboy bunny named Shelley who becomes the den mother to a 'socially clueless' sorority.
Faris is joined by Rumer Willis, Kat Dennings and Katherine McPhee (of American Idol fame) as the loser girls of Zeta House. As Shelley teaches them about the important things in life like lip gloss and dancing in high heels, she learns valuable lessons about being not hot ... or something. The only real question I had after watching the trailer was how did Colin Hanks get talked into doing this movie?
The House Bunny was directed by Fred Wolf (Strange Wilderness) and the script was penned by Legally Blonde writers Karen McCullah Lutz and Kirsten Smith. To be honest, it looks like they just tweaked a lot of the same old Blonde gags for Bunny. From a distance, Faris even kind of looks like a somewhat 'skankier' Elle Woods. The House Bunny is scheduled for release on August 22nd.
