Trailer: “The House Bunny” is going to redefine “trainwreck”.

August 21, 2008

There is no one in this movie who has done something so terrible that the punishment should be being in this movie.  Anna Faris, Colin Hanks, and Christopher MacDonald, and Beverly D’Angelo are all talented people.  Katherine McPhee and Rumer Willis might be talented actors, and yet, they’re all going to be in this vomit-covered tripe.

There’s a part of me that wants to take this trailer at a deeper level; that wants to convince myself that there’s some heart buried somewhere under the hot mess that is the fifteen second cuts.  But I’m not that great at kidding myself.  This movie is going to be wreck, and what’s worse, it’s going to be an overdone wreck.

Could someone get ahold of the think tank in Hollywood that continues to churn out this ridiculous, sanctimonious crap that swears it’s about character empowerment when it’s clearly about T&A and wearing the right kind of shoes?

And before you argue the point, yes, Happy Madison [Adam Sandler’s production company] produced “50 First Dates”, which is a sweet, warm-hearted romantic comedy.  But Happy Madison has also given us such dredge as “I Now Pronounce You Chuck and Larry”, “Click”, “Grandma’s Boy”, “Joe Dirt”, and the entire shelf of utterly unfunny hack-fests that have kept Rob Schnieder* employed for the past nine years.

You want a movie about a woman finding her inner beauty and accepting her outer self?  Rent “Real Women Have Curves” and avoid this cliched, idiotic, and insulting glurge-fest.

*”Deuce Bigalow” [1999], “The Animal” [2001], “The Hot Chick” [2002], “Deuce Bigalow:  European Gigolo” [2005]

(Sean: Why do college movies always have to involve fraternities and sororities? I know a ton of people who went to, or are currently in college that never came anywhere close to greek row.)
