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

Sydney helps a group of geeks with the most mundane tasks, such as tying shoes, and waking up and there isn't one ounce of believability in the journey.

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

Audiences will identify more with Sydney White's misfit cast than its bland leading lady.

Strictly for teenage girls, Sydney White is not totally without charms, but is too breathless, too cheesy and far too dorky to leave a favourable impact.

A Grimm prospect for fairytale traditionalists, but breezy enough to stop tweens feeling sleepy.

Despite a predictable and formulaic storyline, there are enough genuine laugh-inducing moments... that Sydney White is rarely boring if not exactly fresh or original.

I look forward to when Bynes graduates to more mature and sophisticated comedy.

A lot of the acting is in the broad Disney Channel style.

A perky and chaste Y.A. update on Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs.

Sydney White isn't incompetently made. It's not even particularly offensive. It's just very, very uninspired and almost instantly forgettable.

Whoever thought to merge "Snow White" with "Revenge of the Nerds" had a clever idea there. And you can watch it unfold in "Sydney White."

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

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