  • Summary: In a college comedy that puts a modern-day twist on an age-old story, Sydney White tells the tale of a tomboy freshman who ditches her conniving sorority sisters and finds a new home with a group of very dorky outcasts. Fed up with the way they've been treated, she's off to war against the reigning campus royalty. (Universal Pictures) Expand

    I like Amanda Bynes movies…and I’m a dork!
  2. The result is a charmer that boldly marches where lesser movies - at least since the heyday of John Hughes - fear to tread.

    Destined to enchant the slumber parties.

    Result should satisfy Bynes fans looking for a pleasant, innocuous follow-up to her last vehicle.
  5. Unfortunately, though, Bynes' persistent mugging only emphasizes Nussbaum's relentlessly cartoonish direction.

    Each twist and turn is so telegraphed and expected that the story feels wan and the comedy feeble.

    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.
