i probably won't see 'house bunny'.

It's not because I don't enjoy a good dumb summer comedy. I do. Matter of fact, the manhole incident on the trailer is pretty damn funny.

It's not because I have a problem with Playboy. I don't. Like many intelligent women my age, I actually enjoy "The Girls Next Door". Go fig.

This is why: It seems to be a makeover movie, and I think I like the "before" better than the "after". House Bunny's basic plot is this: a Playboy Bunny is kicked out of the mansion and decides to become the house mother to a sorority of "losers". Of course, she decides to make the "losers" over in her own image.

But... if the trailer is any indication... the losers are cool. I'd hang out with them. They seem like earthy, intelligent girls with a sense of what makes them unique; unlike the cookie-cutter "after" versions of themselves which the movie cranks out.

Do we have to get rid of our freakishness to be accepted? Honestly, I'm not interested in looking, acting, or thinking like anyone else. I choose to, as Marilyn Ferdinand once suggested, let my freak flag fly. And I want friends (and movie characters) that will do the same.

Check the trailer out, and tell me what you think:

    I think your worries are valid ones, but I am hoping that she is gonna LIBERATE the freaks. So they will still be freaks,... but freaks with some vavoom!... like in *Revenge of the Nerds* or *Sydney White*.

    We shall see...

    I am just excited to see Anna Faris.

    It looks like a natural part for Anna Faris, but I think you're right.

    I love Anna Faris so story aside, my butt will be in that seat opening weekend.

    I concur with Foz, liberation of the freaks and growth in Faris's character - not makeovers into unrecognizable Barbies.

    I'd gladly take any of those "freaks" as is (still trying to figure out how McPhee qualifies as a freak?!)

    "Aagghh! That is freakin' hot!"
