PG-13
Sydney White is a 2007 romantic comedy by director Joe Nussbaum, starring Amanda Bynes and Matt Long in a sweet story of a fun-filled freshman year at college. Amanda Bynes is Sydney White, a beautiful college freshman who pledges with her late mother’s once dignified sorority, Kappa Phi Nu, before realizing that sorority life is no longer the wonderful sisterhood that it once was. Sydney is determined to transform the Greek system and, after taking up house with a group of seven socially-challenged outcasts, the down-to-earth daughter of a plumber gives her full 100% effort to turning their on-the-fringe ‘weirdo’ sorority into an inclusive, desired sisterhood, like those of her mother’s day. The story combines modern freshman follies and a pop culture starlet with some elements from the classical fairytale Snow White to produce a coming-of-age story that is enjoyable, adorable, and sure to be fun for the whole family. Watch Sydney White for some romance, some laughs, some underdog-beats-the-odds inspiration, and, of course, some Greek life drama.moreless

    The New York Times Laura Kern

    Ms. Bynes, with her cherubic face, expressive eyes and comic timing, helps create a positive, pleasing diversion that caters to the geek in all of us.

    Variety

    Result should satisfy Bynes fans looking for a pleasant, innocuous follow-up to her last vehicle.

    Los Angeles Times Jan Stuart

    Sydney White is a carnival of ethnic and social stereotypes that are rising up against the lily-white status quo. In Hollywood, blond princesses and fairy tales die hard.
