This surprisingly clever coed reworking of Snow White does for dorks what Revenge of the Nerds did for, well, you know.
October 6, 2007
A lot of the acting is in the broad Disney Channel style.
September 26, 2007
A perky and chaste Y.A. update on Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs.
September 25, 2007
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.
September 21, 2007
Ms. Bynes, with her cherubic face, expressive eyes and comic timing, helps create a positive, pleasing diversion that caters to the geek in all of us.
September 21, 2007
Sydney White's message of embracing all kinds of people and not quaking in fear of the elite and popular is a sound one, but each twist and turn is so telegraphed and expected that the story feels wan and the comedy feeble.
September 21, 2007
How hard could it be to make a clever parody of Snow White? Very hard, apparently.
September 21, 2007
Part fairy tale, part college comedy, totally unoriginal and a tad offensive, Sydney White stars Amanda Bynes as a new student who starts a rebellion against the school's oppressive Greek establishment.
September 21, 2007
Snow White joins a sorority and gets some Revenge of the Nerds friends in Sydney White, a cute comedy for girls.
September 21, 2007
On television, Amanda Bynes' tendency toward slapstick can come across as sitcom-cute. Blown up on the big screen, it's the equivalent of a hammer hitting you over the head. For 90 minutes. In surround sound.
September 21, 2007
Its silly Snow White allusions aside, Sydney White is a simple but amiable modern fairy tale about a young woman (Amanda Bynes) who heads off to college determined to pledge her dead mom's sorority.
September 21, 2007
As Sydney White again demonstrates, [Amanda Bynes] just doesn't seem to have found a script that lives up to her comic potential.
September 21, 2007
Dorks deserve better than this. Amanda Bynes deserve better than this. Most importantly, audiences deserve better than this.
September 21, 2007
This is not your middle-schooler's Amanda Bynes. While her female fans will appreciate that 21-year-old Bynes is growing up with them, maybe her next movie will stretch beyond the fractured fairy tale.
September 21, 2007
Sydney White, according to its producers, is a sequel to Hilary Duff's A Cinderella Story, and it shares with that 2004 film the vacuum-like ability to suck the fun out of a fairy tale.
September 21, 2007
While the film's premise is shamelessly hokey and Joe Nussbaum's direction is at best pedestrian, props are due the young cast, especially Bynes, whose can-do optimism seems genuine if ultimately overdone.
September 21, 2007
A feeble college comedy aimed at middle schoolers.
