THE HOUSE BUNNY
February 27, 2015  | By David Bianculli

Comedy Central, 8:00 p.m. ET

 

This 2008 comedy isn’t really that good, or even that funny, though it’s one of the dozens of similar films following in the successful wake of Legally Blonde several years before. What makes it worth watching today is how many of its stars have moved on to prominent, and often noteworthy, TV roles. Anna Faris, now starring on the CBS sitcom Mom, has the very titular role of the former Playboy bunny who takes a job as house mother at an unpopular campus sorority. Her costars include Emma Stone, who earned an Oscar nomination for her work in Birdman, as well as Colin Hanks, who was so believable and identifiable in FX’s Fargo; Kat Dennings, co-star of the CBS sitcom Two Broke Girls; and Katharine McPhee, now starring in the CBS drama Scorpion.
