At least Anna Faris got to show off her slender body and blond hair. Another college "house" movie in which the geeks/nerds are triumphant. Hefner's in it, too.

I was pleasantly surprised with this film. I came into this movie knowing that I’ll like Anna Faris, but I wasn’t convinced that I’ll like the movie because the premise seems a bit early teenager. I imagined it to be as fluffy as cotton candy; that I won’t take anything from it. I was glad to be proven wrong because there were some moments of genuinely touching moments here. Some include the “heart in the head” and “meteor” scenes. Faris and Colin Hanks had some pretty effective (though a bit unusual) chemistry together. They couldn’t be any more opposite but they pulled it off quite well to the point where it was borderline romantic. Meanwhile, Emma Stone, Kat Dennings, and Dana Goodman were able to match Faris’ quirks and antics. In fact, each of the supporting …

I thought it was great for what it is, and Emma Stone is the real star she is going to be huge.

Yes, the women are attractive. lolI thought it was pretty funny. Anna Faris made the movie that much better. The final act could've been better but it's far from terrible.
