A legacy in the Kappa Phi Nu house, president Rachel Witchburn (Sara Paxton) is forced to allow Sidney the chance to rush, but when she begins dating Rachel’s ex-boyfriend, campus stud Tyler Prince (Matt Long), Sydney is denied membership and kicked out onto the curb.
Lucky for her, Sydney is offered a room at The Vortex – a rundown house located on Greek Row where seven dorky outcasts live – but when the house is condemned by Rachel in order to break ground on a Greek-only student center, Sydney convinces her new roommates to take a stand against the evil witch and run for student council.
The other fun part of this film, for me, is that it features one of my childhood friends, Lauren Leech, who plays the part of Katy (a super-blond Kappa loyalist)!
Watch for her cruel little prank against the seven loveable dorks in the party scene towards the end of the movie.
Bynes stars as the title character, a tomboy of sorts who was raised by her plumber dad (John Schneider) and his construction worker buddies after her mother died when she was nine.
Now 18, Sydney leaves for her first year of college with only one thing on her mind: pledge for her mother’s sorority and make life-long friends.
While other young actresses are out there trying to prove their worth in several different mediums (getting coked up and arrested along the way), Amanda’s perfectly content with doing what she does best.
Don’t worry, Sydney isn’t actually poisoned by a piece of fruit – her Macbook is hacked.
“That’s one poisoned Apple,” says the evil hacker who does the deed in exchange for a mega-pack of Hot Pockets.
Coming off of the 2007 hit and a handful of modestly successful teen comedies, Bynes was widely coveted by agencies that saw a lot of upside in the former Nickelodeon television star.
But, according to a high-level agency source who was present at one of the meetings Bynes took with her father in tow, the then-22-year-old actress was deeply frustrated with her lot in Hollywood.
