Review

Our Score
What happens to a Playboy bunny when she's over the hill is the focus of this sweet, daft comedy. Anna Faris sparkles as hapless man-pleaser Shelley Darlington, who's ejected from the Playboy Mansion when she hits the ripe old age of 27. Shelley finds an outlet for her limited talents when she helps to transform the fortunes of a geeky girls sorority that's threatened with closure, and finds something new in herself in the process. Faris is clearly a talented and attractive actress, but she's let down here by an average script and director Fred Wolf's inability to nail the concept's true comedy potential. That said, there's nice support from Colin Hanks (son of Tom) and Rumer Willis (herself the daughter of Demi Moore and Bruce Willis), as well as some great set and wardrobe design. Watch with low expectations and this will be pleasantly surprising.

Summary

A Playboy bunny is ejected from Hugh Hefner's mansion for being considered over-the-hill on her 27th birthday, and has to find a new home and a fresh role in life. She becomes the unlikely house mother for a dowdy college sorority, and sets about giving its inmates a pin-up style makeover and turning their social lives around. Comedy, starring Anna Faris, Colin Hanks, Emma Stone and Kat Dennings.
