This was an enjoyable film, a nice modern version of Snow White. I love Amanda Bynes in all her films, she has a quirkiness that adds to the film! Would have preferred a better ending though!!

This is one of those movies that you buy for your little girl and find out you quite enjoy it as well.
There's plenty of fun spotting the Snow White references, and also Bo Duke is in it!

After watching the Amanda Show, I wasn't expecting much from Amanda Bynes but I was pleasently surprised. I think she was very funny and just by the way she sometimes says things makes it hilarious. I thought Sarah Paxton was very good at being a mean girl and I especially loved the acting of the guy with loads of alergies!!! It wasn't a normal chick flick, it was a great concept and for all the dorks around, remember being a dork is cool!!!!

This light-hearted teen film puts yet another twist in the Snow White fairy tale, with the cherubic teen queen of comedy (Amanda Bynes) in the lead role.

Well versed in the role of the underdog rising to a challenge, Bynes' character sets off to college to follow in her mother's footsteps, but finds the going rather Grimm. The witch in this version is spelled with a "b", not necessarily for "blonde", and Rachel Witchburn (Sara Paxton of Aquamarine) is set on making Sydney's life a living hell.

Jealous that Sydney has become the apple of the eye of her ex-boyfriend Tyler Prince (Prince - get it?), Rachel engineers a scheme to publicly humiliate our heroine, which sends her deep into the black hole of the Vortex (a dilapidated campus building), where she meets seven antisocial dorks (!) whose habits match up to the seven little guys in the original tale.

Never one to let a witch have her day, Sydney gives Rachel a dose of her own medicine, and the result is a teen comedy that's funny in places, but overdone in others. It's okay, but no classic, and not one you'll want to ride off with into the sunset for your happily ever afters.

Short Attention Span Summary (SASS)

1. Bynes shines, supporting cast not so much
2. Geeks take on Greeks
3. Brothers Grimm think: "Hey! They turned our witch into a blonde!"
4. Gentlemen don't always prefer blondes
5. Good guys live geekily ever after

Conclusion

Wait for it on cable, but don't expect too much

Rated: 3.5 stars

Great film to watch any time, feel good film,(it takes no thinking about whatsoever!). A most enjoyable film, the acting's okay, but rather than go through the whole film bit by bit and make it so there's no point at all to watching it, I will say if you like her other films, then you should love this.

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.

Very funny movie. Snow White and the 7 Dwarfs >> Sidney White and the 7 Geeks.
Like all Amanda Bynes movies its very similar to her previous films but i still enjoy watching them. So if you like her movies - i'm sure you'll like this one too :)
