Sydney White

Credit where credit is due: Sydney White is certainly the first film to combine Show White and the Seven Dwarves and Revenge of the Nerds. Amanda Bynes, arguably the most talented of the Disney Channel's tween queens, stars as the titular college freshman who tries to pledge her long-dead mother's sorority, only to run up against a shallow and vindictive beauty queen (Sara Paxton). Booted from the paradise of sorority row, she shacks up with a septet of super dorks, who help her get revenge against the evil Greeks. It's awfully silly stuff (the poisoned apple is now an iMac), but young gals will like it just fine. 90 minutes PG-13.
