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

5.0 out of 5 stars Sydney White 30 July 2009
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars funny and cute 29 July 2009
Format:DVD
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars GREAT TWEEN SLEEPOVER MATERIAL 12 Dec 2010
A Kid's Review
Format:DVD
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.

By Uenna TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:DVD
Amanda Bynes lights up the Screen in this teen drama as Sydney White the champion of the underdogs and all who felt oppressed by the elitist fraternities at the University. I really enjoyed watching this with my family and it touched something deep in me. The storyline is one that is true to life and one that raised a lot of questions that face young people today. Adjusting to life in University is not easy and is made worse when you have vain and shallow fraternity leaders trying to intimidate and humiliate other students whom they do not consider to be cool. We should be allowed to be ourselves and we should respect one another and our differences.
Another movie on the journey to self discovery, tapping deep into inner reserve, standing up to bullies and what you believe in, and above all being a good human being. The romantic undertone was also well done and good to see that the hero was able to distinguish between the real gem (inner beauty) and the fake artifice (outer beauty) in the two lead female characters. The hero was also adorable in his romantic and relentless pursuit of Sydney White .The DVD comes with lots of special features.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fun & easy viewing 26 Mar 2010
By Emma
Format:DVD
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Better than what a girl wants 20 Nov 2009
By JILLIAN
Format:DVD
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.
