Sydney White is a 2007 modern retelling of the classic fairytale "Snow White," and a spiritual sequel to the 2004 modern retelling of A Cinderella Story. The film follows a beautiful, but down-to-earth college freshman who enjoys football, comic books and carpentry, as she pledges her late mother's once dignified sorority. But after running afoul of the sorority's mean-spirited leader and discovering that today's sisterhood is not what it used to be, Sydney finds her new home away from home with seven outcasts. With the help of her socially challenged new friends, Sydney will take on the reigning campus queen to attempt to transform the school's misguided social hierarchy.

Directed by Joe Nussbaum. Written by Chad Gomez Creasey.
Freshman year is no fairy tale

Dialogue[edit]

Professor Carleton: We are taught from an early age that this is a government of the people, by the people, and for the people. But what many Americans do not know is how much the Founding Fathers were as scared of democracy as they were of British oppression. Can anyone tell me why that is?
Snoring noise is heard in seats
Professor Carleton: The young man snoring there, perhaps?
Class laughs, Jeremy jostles Embele awake
Jeremy{whispering}: Come on, get up!
Embele{drowsily}: The Founding Fathers were afraid direct democracy would ruin the American people the same way it doomed the Roman Republic. Alexander Hamilton even advocated a monarchy. Embele yawns
Professor Carleton{surprised}: Correct. We are trained to think the more power the people have the better.
Terrence is repeating to himself the professor's lecture verbatim
Professor Carleton & Terrence: Can anyone tell me why is this not neccesarily so?
Terrence hoists his hand high
Professor Carleton: Ah, Terrence. Still here after eight years! class laugh What do you say we give someone else a chance to respond this time? Why not you, Miss?
Professor motions to Sydney
Sydney: White. Well, I have to say that...uh...
Rachel Witchburn{interrupting}: Most Americans do not concern themselves with the issues. There could be arguments for keeping things say a little more...elite? Maybe even certain kinds of oligarchies.
Sydney: I have to say that that is underestimating the masses a bit, not to mention overestimating the elites. Aparthied was an oligarchy, and no one wants that to return.
Professor Carleton: Interesting/

Three dorks are staring at Sydney's sports bra, which she has hung out to dry
Spanky: Dudes...that thing has touched boobs.
Terrence Lubinecki: Of course... The sturdy, breathable fabric is designed to maintain mammary elasticity.
Spanky: Shut up, Terrence. You're ruining the moment for me.

Embele is snoozing in the living room of "The Vortex"
Sydney: Why is he asleep?
Lenny: Embele is from Abuja, Nigeria. Interesting geography fact is that our time zone and theirs are literally on the other side of the world. Our 10 PM is their 10 AM, so he has not yet adjusted.
Sydney: I see. How long has Embele been studying in the United States?
Lenny: Three years.

Gurkin: This from the guy who still is a Junior Tiger Guide.
George: I am only one merit badge away from getting promoted to Tiger Guide.
Gurkin: Yeah, I can tell which one.
Camera shows George is wearing Velcro-strap sneakers
George: Knots are hard.

Amy: My diet is working! I lost five pounds!.
Rachel{sweetly}: That is so great Amy!
Amy departs in other direction
Rachel{talking to herself}: Looks like your ass found it.

Waiting for Sydney to come down for her first date with Tyler
Terrence: Three-quarters of first dates end in disappointment for one or both parties, studies show. I hope you beat the odds.
Tyler: Me too.
Gurkin: If you try any funny stuff I will unleash the power of the internet on you. I will register you as a sex offender in all 50 states, and Canada.
Tyler: Wow.
George: Yeah! And I'll kick your ass.

Tyler is playing video games with the dorks
Tyler: You guys should come over to the Beta house sometime.
Lenny: How come?
Tyler: We play a lot of video games too. We are like you guys. Why, what did you think the Betas did?
Spanky: We thought you went after hot babes nonstop.
Tyler: Hate to burst your bubble, but for the most part the Betas struggle with girls like most other men.
Sydney: Tyler, what you said is like revealing that there is no Santa Claus.
George stares in shock
Sydney: Hypothetically speaking, of course.

Sydney is surprised to see her father's pickup truck on campus, in addition to her father
Sydney: Dad? You drove all this way to see me?
John White: Something about your call did not sound right. Only factor that perplexed me was that you were not at the Kappa house.
Sydney explains her railroading at the hands of Rachel Witchburn and how she has failed to follow in her mother's footsteps
John White: Sweetheart, respecting your mother is not about reliving her life. One big reason I fell in love with her was that she always stood up for her friends in need, no matter how hard it was. And on that, you are exactly like her.
