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.

Trivia

During the Student Government campaign: The Seven Dorks are carrying wooden campaign signs over their shoulders. As they pass Rachel, one says 'Hi Ho', and another says 'Bye Ho.' This is a clear allusion to the scene in Walt Disney's Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs (1937) when the dwarfs sing Hi Ho with the signs replacing the pickaxes. See more »

Feel good to the 7th power!

"Sydney White" is the typical losers-become-winners where we cheer for the underdogs.

Amanda Bynes is Sydney White, a freshman in college, who doesn't fit in with her Greek sorority. Determined to fight them she teams up with 7 'dorks' and launches a campaign to win back the school. Yes it is supposed to be a modern update of Snow White which I find lame, but it's easy to ignore that.

It has all of the characters you expect to find, the cute tomboy, the pretty and popular mean girl, the cute and popular but also sweet guy, and the geek (7 of them in this case). The great thing about these characters is that the important ones, who are supposed to be more than just caricatures, actually are.

And of course the highlight is Amanda Bynes, she is funny and sweet and pretty and very easy to like. Most people are familiar with Bynes so if you have liked her previous films ("What a Girl Wants" (2003) or "She's the Man" (2006)) then you should like her here. If you are not a fan of hers then I respect your opinion but think you're missing something, and you should probably also skip this.

"Sydney White" is everything that you want in a cute, sweet, feel good PG movie. I recommend it.
