80
Among the sunnier, funnier films of the year, thanks largely to the zest with which Faris embodies a mental vacuum.
75
Silly but endearing comedy.

L.A. Weekly
The movie is basically on one level and Faris on another -- in that exclusive aerie occupied by Judy Holliday, Carole Lombard, Lucille Ball and a few other blissfully original comedy goddesses.
70
Manages to stand on its own two skyscraper heels thanks to the comic force of nature that is Anna Faris.

Variety
A blissfully broad comedy that should catapult Anna Faris into a singular kind of stardom.
63
Bunny is fashioned as a bawdy comedy with heart, but its reliance on formula undercuts the amusing moments.
58
It's funny. Dumb, yes, but funny.

Philadelphia Inquirer
Despite a winning performance by Anna Faris, the cutest thing in platform shoes since Goldie Hawn, the film falls on its keister so many times that before long the perky pinkness turns bruising black-and-blue.

The A.V. Club
Faris has mostly logged time in dire vehicles like The House Bunny, which are dumb-dumb to her smart-dumb.
25
ReelViews
The resulting hodgepodge of unfunny, sophomoric humor and PG-13 T&A, frosted by a sheen of appallingly nauseous "drama," makes for such a noxious brew that it's amazing viewers stay in their seats for the entire production.
