Sydney White (2007) - Rotten Tomatoes

Sydney White (2007)



Critic Consensus: Amanda Bynes is charming, but Sydney White is a poorly adapted take on Snow White, relying on tired ethnic stereotypes laughs.

Movie Info

Gorgeous freshman Sydney White has come to Southern Atlantic University to pledge her late mom's once-dignified sorority. But while surviving the pledging process wrought by evil campus witch Rachel, Syd finds out this version of sisterhood isn't remotely what it's cracked up to be. Banished to a condemned house on Greek Row, Syd finds her rightful place with a band of seven very socially challenged guys. With the help of one lovestruck frat boy named Tyler, she and the doofs campaign to take over student government. Fighting for the rights of misfits big and small, Syd organizes her gang to revolutionize the system, once and for all.more

This surprisingly clever coed reworking of Snow White does for dorks what Revenge of the Nerds did for, well, you know.

One of the dopiest, goofiest, and yes, I guess you can say, sneezy-ist and sleepy-ist, movies of the year.

...Sydney White's astounding lack of positive attributes cements its place as an utterly worthless endeavor.

Audience Reviews for Sydney White


Mashup of Snow White and Revenge of the Nerds is completely predictable but an enjoyable enough view if you don't expect anything but a formula film.
