Sydney White (2007)

dir. Joe Nussbaum

Snow White, but with Amanda Bynes and some college nerds. That’s it. That’s the film. The poisoned apple is now a computer virus, and Prince Charming is now a vapid good-looking nobody who just happened to show up at the right time – although on second thoughts, perhaps that second point is entirely true to the fairy tale. Obviously the “seven dorks” are given the most insultingly basic geek stereotypes known to humankind, and all of them fall over themselves at the mere fact that Sydney is a living, breathing woman who has come anywhere within their vicinity. By the end of the movie they’ve achieved such incredible feats as learning how to tie a knot, learning how to talk to people socially, and even getting a girlfriend. To think that nerds could be human after all!
