Product Description

America's sweetheart Amanda Bynes stars in the fun comedy Sydney White! When tomboy Sydney (Bynes) is banished from the most popular sorority on campus, she is taken in by seven socially challenged but endearing guys. With the help of her new friends, Sydney stands up for outcasts everywhere and takes on the reigning campus queen in a popularity showdown! But can she succeed and also win the heart of gorgeous frat guy Tyler Prince? You'll love this hilarious and sweet age-old story with a charming modern-day twist!

Amazon.com

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

    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

    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!

    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"

    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!

    The movie was really good! I miss Amanda Bynes when she starred in light-hearted comedies like these...

    Unfortunately, the movie quality wasn't all that great because the dvd froze and skipped in certain places. I ended up purchasing the digital copy on Vudu to watch the movie.

    Imagine a world like ours, but backwards. That's the environment that 'Sydney White' takes on in this modern retelling of 'Snow White'. The concept is novel, suitable for a rom-com with a bit of a twist. But there's a looming element to the film. It's one of the rare films in the genre that makes me step back and wonder who's behind the camera. In this case it's Joe Nussbaum. I wasn't familiar with the name and saw that he notably directed the short 'George Lucas In Love', a satire of George Lucas life. And that really sets the stage for what makes Nussbaum a perfect choice for this film. It's within reason to think his sense of parody to play up the Snow White plot line. But if my theory's correct, he didn't just parody the story... he parodied the studio.

    This film should be considered an era defining piece on the destruction of the outsider narrative in teenage film as through the lens of sardonic arthouse directors like David Lynch. It truly is something to be hold, but it can only be seen under a thin veil of self-awareness. The extremes in this film are extreme, subtly is nill. The politics of student life are tools for an extensive metaphors on populist politics versus classic regimes.Sydney White's 'Fight For The 7th' movement uses imagery typically associated with uprisings or pride. They appeal to the bottom, silent segment to build a revolution from the ground up and opposing the up coming down. White is vigilant in her message, spam her students with pop-up ads and lobbying their groups for support. It culminates in the end with the clubs mocking the pageantry of politics with a song and dance number about White and her movement.

    But the Kappa President Rachel Witchworth is the greatest treasure of this film.
