Anna Faris is hilarious as a ditzy Playboy bunny who's ejected from Hugh Hefner's mansion and is taken in as the house mother by a bunch of dowdy and clueless sorority girls.

Faris shows the girls how to be sexy and sassy, while they teach her that boys like brains as well as beauty, landing her nice Colin Hanks. The plot's as light as air and as thin as a size zero model, but there are lots of first-class one-liners, expertly delivered by Faris, and this is a likeable, fun movie.

Emma Stone, Rumer Willis (daughter of Bruce and Demi) and American Idol runner-up Katharine McPhee score well among the gals and there are a couple of good moments for Beverly D'Angelo as a snotty old house mother and Christopher McDonald as the prissy dean, plus a cameo from Hefner, playing, hysterically badly, himself.
