Storyline

This modern retelling of the classic fairytale follows a beautiful college freshman as she pledges her late mother's once dignified sorority. But after discovering that today's sisterhood is not what it used to be, Sydney finds her new home away from home with seven outcasts. 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. Written by Morgan Creek Productions

Great Movie for the whole family.
11 March 2008 | by dweezledapSee all my reviews

Call me sheltered, I work a lot. I never saw the trailers for this movie nor read the preview. I had to watch it twice before I realized that there was a correlation between it and the Disney classic "Snow White".

That being said, my 9 year old daughter, 18 year old son, and my 40 plus year old wife and I enjoyed this movie very much. The movie has a comedic presentation with a slightly serious undertone. It shows a very basic lesson while keeping it entertaining. The message: "Be Yourself".

I have know idea why the movie is rated as PG-13. The worst vocabulary they use is b***h, and it is along the same lines as The Princess Diaries (In my Opinion). As for sexual undertones ??? I saw more on Shrek 3.

If you are a parent, teenager, or young adult I think you would enjoy this movie (unless you are Grumpy).
