    Entering College is a time of great transition, but Sydney White (Amanda Bynes) is secure in her plan to follow in her late-mother's footsteps and pledge Kappa Phi Nu sorority when she arrives at Southern Atlantic University. Raised by a plumber father and a host of other construction workers, the comic book collection toting Sydney is definitely her own unique person and has some decidedly tomboy tendencies that contrast starkly with the ditzy, superficial girls she meets at her first sorority function. Sorority leader and student council president Rachel (Sara Paxton) takes an instant dislike to Sydney and vows to make her rushing experience intolerable. Only Tyler (Mat Long), a member of one of the campus fraternities, seems to see and appreciate the real Sydney. After weeks of hazing abuse, Rachel declares Sydney unfit to join the sorority and a despondent Sydney joins seven misfit boys in a soon-to-be-condemned house on Greek Row known as the Vortex. Fueled by the desire for revenge and a newly discovered sense of respect and belonging thanks to her new roommates, Sydney decides to fight back against the snobbery of the Greek elite and champion the rights of all misfits on campus by running against Rachel for Student Council President. By rallying the support of interest groups and misfits campus-wide, it appears that Sydney might just have a chance of winning. This film begins with an almost gag-inducing portrayal of sorority snobbery at its worst and soon gives way to a hysterically comic look at the under-representation of the masses in collegiate society. The satirical parallel to Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs is heavy (this is the story of "Sydney White and the Seven Dorks" complete with Sneezy, Sleepy, and Doc) and the portrayal of interest groups on college campuses is farcical to the extreme. All in all, Sydney White is hysterically funny and surprisingly appealing to audiences of both genders and a wide age range. Rated PG-13 for some language, sexual humor, and partying. --Tami Horiuchi

    4.0 out of 5 stars Revamping Snow White August 17, 2008
    Format:DVD
    Combine Snow White, Animal House and Revenge of The Nerds and you have Syndey White.

    This modern retelling fairytale of Snow White. It follows a beautiful college freshman Syndey White (played by Amanda Bynes) as she pledges her late mother's sorority. But after discovering that today's sisterhood is not what it used to be, Sydney makes new home away from home with seven nerdy outcasts. With the help of her new friends, Sydney will take on Rachel, the reigning campus queen (Sara Paxton) to attempt to transform the school's misguided social hierarchy

    Bynes is great with her cheerleading style. The film is a cute send up with a Revenge of the Nerds twist.

    It is cute for an evening entertainment

    5.0 out of 5 stars Laugh out loud funny! Totally Underrated. December 17, 2007
    Format:DVD
    Sydney White is a modern-day Snow White whose story unfolds on the campus of the college her deceased mother attended. Sydney is a legacy pledge for her mother's sorority, but circumstances prevent her from becoming a "sister". Instead, Sydney moves in with the "Seven Dorks" of "The Vortex" - the house that sucks in all of the losers! These actors had me in tears because I was laughing so hard! Each one beautifully portrayed one of the fairy tale dwarf personas. The charming Prince (Matt Long, "Ghost Rider") even awakens the sleeping princess with a kiss.

    Amanda Bynes was her usual comical self. John Schneider is always a welcome addition to any screen. Sara Paxton is outstanding as Rachel Witchburn. Crystal Hunt, Jack Carpenter, Jeremy Howard, Adam Hendershott, Danny Strong, Samm Levine, Donte Bonner are an outstanding supporting cast. Arnie Pantoja steals the show as the "Dopey"-est dork! This was the sweetest family film! Some sexual references and college party scenes make it appropriate for teenagers and older. I can't wait for it to be available for purchase on DVD!

    4.0 out of 5 stars Not as good as her other movies January 25, 2008
    By Patrick
    Format:DVD
    I think Amanda Bynes is hilarious. I think she's probably the best comedic actress in her age range today. But this movie was a little light on the humor. And what humor it did have, was mainly given to the seven dorks. Jokes like the "hi ho" moment were very funny but they weren't her jokes. I think Amanda was under used in this movie. I much prefer "She's the Man" or even her sitcom "What I like about you"

    5.0 out of 5 stars Freakin Amazing October 29, 2007
    Verified Purchase
    Ok, I love Amanda Bynes. She's hilarious, and has great comedic timing. I randomly saw a trailer for this movie and immediately knew I had to see it. And I'm so glad I did. Based loosely off of the Snow White fairy tale, Amanda's character, Sydney White, goes off to her dead mom's alma mater college and pledges with her mom's old sorority. The head of that sorority, doesn't like Sydney though, and after a whole list of horrible pledge hazing, Sydney is publicly humiliated at the initiation ceremony. Left with no where to live (she had expected to live at the sorority house), she moves in with a bunch of nerdy guys in a horribly run-down house in the middle of all the other Greek houses. The evil sorority president wants to tear down this house for another Greek building, donated by her father, so the rest of the movie Sydney and her 7 geeks are trying to get back at her. This movie is not just for the sorority girls though, if you're a geeky girl like me you'll have plenty of inside jokes to laugh at. Especially about Admiral Adama, the possible cylon?
    I highly recommend Sydney White, go out and see it or buy it on DVD when it comes out, like me!

    3.0 out of 5 stars "Dorkily Ever After" January 26, 2008
    Format:DVD
    Let me begin by saying that I'm a BIG Amanda Bynes fan so the possibility of me disliking anything she's in is next to impossible. Now to the matter at hand, the '07 film `Sydney White' is Amanda doing what she does best; starting off on a new adventure on her own (this time going away to college), falling in love with campus the hottie (Matt Long), battling his ex-girlfriend and resident sorority b*t*h (Sara Paxton) and almost single-handedly changing the inequities of university social life. That girl can do just about anything!

    There's not a lot new here (OK nothing) in terms of storyline but the production values are excellent and the cast outstanding. All that and Amanda too! What more could anyone ask for?

    My Rating: -3 ˝ Stars-.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Love it, great movie for teens. June 9, 2011
    By TheMrsW
    Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
    I love Amanda and the storyline is great. My daughter is 13 and we have loved this movie since it came out. It's by no means a "moral" story, but outlines how not to act and what friendship and true loyalty is. Overall a feel good, girly movie.

    4.0 out of 5 stars Sydney White More Like Snow White & the Seven Dorks January 24, 2008
    Format:DVD
    Sydney White (Amanda Bynes) is a modern day adaptation of the timeless fairytale Snow White. In this instance, our heroine is a college student away from home for the 1st time. She is rejected by the sorority that was her deceased mother's alma mater and finds herself instantly homeless and a social outcast. With nowhere else to go, she ends up at "The Vortex" (the campus house that is infamous for sucking up all the losers). She is taken in by the seven dorks that live there and the laughs begin in earnest. In many ways it's like Snow White meets Revenge of the Nerds.
    The other cast members include John Schneider (Sydney's father), Matt Long (Tyler Prince- Sydney's love interest), Sara Paxton (Sorority Leader & student council president- Rachel Witchburn), Jack Carpenter (Lenny- the head "dork"), Jeremy Howard (Terrence Lubinecki- the dork that dares to run for student council president against Rachel).
    While it is totally predictable, it is still worth watching if you are in the mood for something light and frivolous. Amanda Bynes once again shows her talent at comedic timing and proves that she really is a decent actress. It is rated PG-13 for some language, sexual humor and college partying. I wouldn't recommend it for younger viewers but think the preteen to younger teens will find it utterly delightful.
