  • Title: Sydney White
  • IMDB: link

“Does anyone know another word for douchebagery?  I don’t want to repeat it a third time.”

sydney-white-dvdAmanda Bynes stars as a Sydney White, a girl raised by her plumber father (John Schneider) who goes away to college and has a hard time fitting in as she pledges her mother’s sorority.  The movie follows a basic structure of Snow White with the young girl fighting off a witch (Sara Paxton), meeting a Prince (Matt Long), and eventually moving in with seven odd fellows.  For more on the basic plot of the film check out the original review.

You sort of want to like Sydney White.  It’s filled with nice people, it’s sweet and goofy, but it’s as appetizing as a year-old rice cake.  If you are a 7 to 13 year-old girl you might find some fun here.  From script to DVD Sydney White comes off as a cute girl trying to get through life on her looks alone and unwilling to put in anything more than the bare minimum token effort on anything else.
