With the help of her socially challenged new friends, Sydney will take on the reigning campus queen to attempt to transform the school's misguided social hierarchy.

modern update on Snow White?
9 February 2008 | by See all my reviews

i think this is a modern retelling of the snow white fairy tale.it has most of the same types of characters as the fairy tale does.but instead of dwarfs,it has dorks.and the movie takes place on a college campus.it's an under dog movie,so it is fairly predictable,but it is a fun movie to watch.there is a great mix of characters with odd quirks,and Armada Bynes is so likable it's hard not to like the movie.she has great comedic timing and plays the fish out of water role very well.i laughed quite a bit throughout the movie.i like the fact that it's a movie that takes place on campus,but is not raunchy,or low brow.it's nice to know a movie can be funny and entertaining without being crude,lewd or offensive.not that there's anything wrong with that.i also really liked Sara Paxton as the school president/villainess.i thought she was very convincing.overall, a very entertaining 100 plus minutes.my vote for Sydney White is an 8/10
