In this renovated fairytale, a collage student named Sydney White (Amanda Bynes) joins forces with seven misfit males, and sets out to makeover the campus's prejudices and bullying practices. But her plan to paint the world right threatens to unseat a reigning sorority queen (Sara Paxton) --and that's something the evil witch will not take sitting down.

Here is additional information on sex, violence and profanity in Sydney White...
This creative remake of the Snow White story is definitely for an older crowd than the original fairy tale. The greatest concerns for parents will be various moments of sexual innuendo and talk of “hooking up.” One young man is particularly preoccupied with the idea of finding any girl to have sex with (although we are never told if this actually happens). Other nerdy males (who parallel Snow White’s seven dwarfs) are enthralled with the idea of a girl sharing their college home with them, and spend time gazing at her bra hanging in the closet. But Sydney’s long desired dream to join a sorority becomes more of a nightmare when she and other recruits are subjected to cruel pranks, name-calling and disrespectful terms for women. While one girl is mistakenly hit in the head with a Frisbee, other characters are intentionally attacked with water guns and publicly humiliated in front of their peers. Alcohol consumption at a frat house party includes a drinking contest between the students.
