It's "Snow White and the 7 Dwarfs" meets "Revenge of the Nerds." Very cute movie. Both guys and gals will enjoy it, as well as all the lovable "dorks" in the world!

Revamping Snow White
Bennet Pomerantz | Seabrook, Maryland | 08/17/2008
(4 out of 5 stars)

"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

There's a reason it never made it to the theater...

"Amanda Bynes mines Disney territory in this almost clever take on "Snow White." She stars as Sydney White, an awkward freshman who has just started college at her deceased mother's alma mater and is a sorority legacy. But witchy president Rachel Witchburn takes an immediate dislike to her when her ex-boyfriend Tyler shows interest in Snow, or rather Sydney. Rachel schemes to get Syd blackballed and her only option for housing is to bunk with the dwarfs, or rather the dorks down the road. Sydney soon dusts herself off and plots to get even with the duplicitous Rachel, while aiding her fellow dorks to be more hip.

I wanted to really like this movie - I loved the premise and the setting in a college campus, but the movie just drags and never really catches any momentum. Bynes character is so similar to Viola in "She's the Man," that it's like she's doing an imitation of herself (and a poor one at that). It's an utterly forgettable movie that you're better off catching on cable provided you're already caught up on your laundry, which is a real shame since it had the potential to be so much more. Better yet, skip it and check out the original dorkfest, "Revenge of the Nerds.""
Laugh out loud funny! Totally Underrated.

"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!
