Product Description

Romantic teen comedy transposing the fairy tale of Snow White and the Seven Dwarves into a modern US college setting. Amanda Bynes stars as Sydney White, a beautiful young student who pledges her allegiance to her late mother's once dignified sorority when she starts college on a scholarship. But she soon realises that sorority life is far from what it was in her mother's day, and decides to find a home outside the college. She ends up sharing a house with seven social outcasts - but soon discovers that every one of the 'seven dorks' has a special quality of his own...

From Amazon.co.uk

Entering college is a time of great transition, but Sydney White (Amanda Bynes) is secure in her plan to follow in her late-mother's footsteps and pledge Kappa Phi Nu sorority when she arrives at Southern Atlantic University. Raised by a plumber father and a host of other construction workers, the comic book collection toting Sydney is definitely her own unique person and has some decidedly tomboy tendencies that contrast starkly with the ditzy, superficial girls she meets at her first sorority function. Sorority leader and student council president Rachel (Sara Paxton) takes an instant dislike to Sydney and vows to make her rushing experience intolerable. Only Tyler (Mat Long), a member of one of the campus fraternities, seems to see and appreciate the real Sydney. After weeks of hazing abuse, Rachel declares Sydney unfit to join the sorority and a despondent Sydney joins seven misfit boys in a soon-to-be-condemned house on Greek Row known as the Vortex. Fueled by the desire for revenge and a newly discovered sense of respect and belonging thanks to her new roommates, Sydney decides to fight back against the snobbery of the Greek elite and champion the rights of all misfits on campus by running against Rachel for Student Council President. By rallying the support of interest groups and misfits campus-wide, it appears that Sydney might just have a chance of winning. This film begins with an almost gag-inducing portrayal of sorority snobbery at its worst and soon gives way to a hysterically comic look at the under-representation of the masses in collegiate society. The satirical parallel to Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs is heavy (this is the story of "Sydney White and the Seven Dorks" complete with Sneezy, Sleepy, and Doc) and the portrayal of interest groups on college campuses is farcical to the extreme. All in all, Sydney White is hysterically funny and surprisingly appealing to audiences of both genders and a wide age range. --Tami Horiuchi

Excellent romantic comedy, the plot may be a bit light, but who cares, it's fun and full of laughs, Amanda Bynes is charismatic as always, a must see film for romantic comedy fans.

I ordered this DVD from amazon's Indigo starfish. I absolutely love this film, great choice of cast especially Amanda Bynes as the lead (Sydney White). It is a funny and touching story, and a great modern update of the classic snow white.
Ordered it from amazon, because I always have great service; the DVD arrived in perfect condition, just 2 days after ordering it.

You know tweens, right? You know how they have sleepovers and watch DVDs, but don't want to in-depth comedy because their attention is bound to wander? THIS IS THE BEST DVD EVER!!!! Snuggle up with some popcorn, haribos and all your friends. This is funny, and very easy to follow, even if you do pop into the kitchen for some strawberry laces.

sydney white is a modern version of snow white. sydney white is a girl who goes to college and tries to get into the same sorority that her mum did. but when she gets banned she makes friends with 'seven dorks' and tries to save their house while getting the attention of the 'prince'. I enjoyed this film, it was lighthearted fun. I'd say this is perfect for a girly sleepover.

A great fun film which is easy to sit down and watch if you like Amanda Bynes you are going to like this just like She's The Man and What A Girl Wants she plays a nice likely girl you you root for from start to finish. The rest of the cast also help esp the Vortex group who you can't help but like no matter how strange they are.

I just bought this for a friend who is a big fan of Amanda Byrnes who is fantastic in this film. All of the 'dorks' portray their respectful 'dwalf' selves really well too. The play on the Snow White story is a nice touch. Had me laughing throughout as it's got some great lines and lots of funny moments!

I really enjoyed this film and even though its based around snow white it apppeals to adults too. There is a part which made me cringe and thought it took the fairy tale element too far...the 'prince' kisses sydney while shes asleep and it wakes her up to make an important speech. Good film overall.

I really love this movie. I own it, and it's just the best movie.

You could really understand Amanda's character on how she tries to fit in,
and how she realizes the importance of standing up for what you believe in.
