One of the most beloved tales of all time comes to life in the spectacular Mirror Mirror, starring Lily Collins as Snow White and Julia Roberts as the evil Queen. A fresh and funny retelling of the classic fairy tale.

Fresh: 'Mirror Mirror' is as gaudily spectacular as you expect if you've seen director Tarsem Singh's films, 'The Fall' and 'Immortals'.
- Cath Clarke, Time Out, Tuesday, April 3, 2012
Fresh: Singh brings cheeky humor, an eccentric sensibility and an enchanting look to his re-imagined tale.
- Claudia Puig, USA Today, Thursday, March 29, 2012
Fresh: An attitude of mischief and charm rather than outright satire.

I gotta admit, I've always liked the "Disney Snow White" cartoon. The story, the dwarves, I enjoyed everything about it. "Mirror Mirror" is a live action take on the Snow White fairy tale, and has zero in common with the cartoon. Actually, this movie has zero in common with any good movie period. It's the classic Snow White story, with a different take, a not so evil-evil queen, and a different ending. Julia Roberts stars as the Queen, and I actually think they made this movie just for her. She can't decide if she is good or, serious or funny. It's pretty much a jumbled mess when it comes to her. Shouldn't Snow White be the focus of the movie? I guess I'm just in the wrong on this. The effects are cheesy, the action is campy, and the acting is just ok. Lily Collins(Snow White) and Armie Hammer(the Prince) both do an ok job, and are much more enjoyable than Roberts. The dwarves are fun, but not nearly as fun and entertaining as their animated counterparts. Kids should dig this(especially the girls), but adults will roll their eyes. 2012 ushered in two live action "Snow White" movies, "Mirror Mirror" and "Snow White and The Huntsman". I'm willing to bet in 50 years, the animated version is the one still remembered, but "Mirror Mirror" will be the one completely forgotten.

Interesting twist on snow white. She becomes the hero. Julia Roberts is the evil queen. Some funny lines.

the film is excellent on the visuals, and the first half feels like a light fare mel brooks comedy. it was witty and full of fantasy. the last half of the film descends a bit into standard fare for a fairy tale like this. it becomes dry, and overplayed, and loses its muster. overall a fun family movie.
