The House Bunny

For the girl of ZETA house college, life was no party, until Shelly showed up

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 Seta. 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 Shelly can provide… but they will each learn on their own to stop pretending to be what others want them to be and start being themselves.

Shelley Darlington (Anna Faris) is a Playboy Bunny living the life of luxury. The day after her twenty-seventh birthday, she awakes to find a note from Hugh Hefner asking her to pack up and leave. Sadly, she gets out on the road looking for a new life, and happens to see girls who remind her of herself: beautiful and fun. She immediately follows them and sees that they live in luxury too. She tells them her situation and asks to join, not knowing that they are in a sorority, and is rejected because she is not a student, as well as the fact that the girls are completely stuck up. She sees there are ladies that watch over the girls and live there also, but after asking them to join, she is rejected again.

As she carries on, she finds another sorority, Zeta Alpha Zeta, whose members are socially awkward, although they reject her also. However, once they see that she is able to attract boys and friends, this changes. She turns the girls around and teaches them everything they need to know to surpass the other girls. In particular, Shelley becomes close with Natalie (Emma Stone), a bespectled virgin who acted as leader of the Zetas. During this process she meets a guy named Oliver (Colin Hanks), and although she can teach everyone else how to flirt, she has to get help from her new "students" on what to do in order to socialize with him.

As the girls of her sorority become more popular on campus, they realize that they changed themselves too much to please other people and blame it on Shelley. Conveniently, she gets a call from the Playboy Mansion informing her that she was set up, and they never wanted her to leave. It would seem perfect for her to go back to her old life, but when she tries, she sees she cares far too much for her girls, who reciprocate the sentiment. She decides to fix the devastation that the Phi Iota Mus have done to Zeta Alpha Zetas while she was gone, but does it with help from everyone. The Zetas also play matchmaker, and manage to fix Shelley up with Oliver.
