IMDb Plot Synopsis: When Shelly, a Playboy bunny, is tossed out of the mansion, she has nowhere to go until she falls in with the sorority girls from Zeta Alpha Zeta. The members of the sorority - who also have got to be the seven most socially clueless women on the planet - are about to lose their house. They need a dose of what only the eternally bubbly Shelley can provide...

A Quick Review: This has to be the most ridiculous, laughably unrealistic film I’v ever seen. And not particularly funny laughable either, unfortunately. No, it’s all pretty bad. Anna Faris managed to play the dumb blonde incredibly well, I’ll give her credit for that, as some of her ‘stupid’ lines were pretty amusing. 
But it was Emma Stone (isn’t it always?!) that made this film bearable for me. She brought light where there was dark and brought this film out of the rubbish that it could be. Basically, don’t watch this film if you want any kind of a clever, interesting or properly enjoyable film. Watch it because it’s a movie about an ex-Playboy bunny trying to make it in the real world with the gag-inducing PG-13 ‘happy’ ending. Frankly, I expected more from the makers of Legally Blonde. But there you go...

Score: 5/10
