    I like Amanda Bynes movies…and I’m a dork!
  2. "Revenge of the Nerds" is way cooler in its proud defense of geekosity, no question. But anti-ditz role model Amanda Bynes just happens to be cute.

    Its silly Snow White allusions aside, Sydney White is a simple but amiable modern fairy tale.

    Result should satisfy Bynes fans looking for a pleasant, innocuous follow-up to her last vehicle.

    Director Joe Nussbaum (“Sleepover”) doesn’t do much with his cast; there’s a lot of standing around as he indulges Bynes’ tendency to mug.
  6. A mediocre college comedy that blends bits of "Revenge of the Nerds," "Mean Girls" and "Legally Blonde" and doesn't have much to show for it.

    What's the excuse for dumbing down Snow White to moron level? Are there really people out there who thought the original version just didn't have enough toilet jokes?

    I couldn't stand seeing this movie with 3 good reviews, so I brought it down a peg.
