Consensus: Amanda Bynes is charming, but Sydney White is a poorly adapted take on Snow White, relying on tired ethnic stereotypes laughs.

A lot of the acting is in the broad Disney Channel style.

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

...Sydney White's astounding lack of positive attributes cements its place as an utterly worthless endeavor.

A perky and chaste Y.A. update on Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs.

New York Times

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.

One of the dopiest, goofiest, and yes, I guess you can say, sneezy-ist and sleepy-ist, movies of the year.

Sydney White's message of embracing all kinds of people and not quaking in fear of the elite and popular is a sound one, but each twist and turn is so telegraphed and expected that the story feels wan and the comedy feeble.

Mashup of Snow White and Revenge of the Nerds is completely predictable but an enjoyable enough view if you don't expect anything but a formula film.

The story line is similar to "Snow White and the seven dwarfs". What irritates me is when people watch a girl like she's goddess or something but… More
