Mirror Mirror - Movie Review


One of the most beloved stories of all time is coming to life in the motion picture event for the whole family, Mirror Mirror. A fresh and funny retelling of the Snow White legend, Mirror Mirror features breakout star Lily Collins as Snow White, a princess in exile, and Oscar®-winner Julia Roberts as the evil Queen who ruthlessly rules her captured kingdom. Seven courageous rebel dwarfs join forces with Snow White as she fights to reclaim her birthright and win her Prince in this magical comedy filled with jealousy, romance, and betrayal that will capture the hearts and imaginations of audiences the world over. The film also stars Armie Hammer as the Prince, and Nathan Lane as the hapless and bungling servant to the Queen.

My Review:

I'm a sucker for a good fairytale. And so are my kids. Julia Roberts did a peachy job in this one and Lily Collins was cute. I prefer the older version of Snow White but this one was light and refreshing. My kids laughed at certain parts. Me not so much it was a bit corny. The imagery was cute though and the story was light. Some adult laughs in there that made me smile. My kids (daughters) gave it a 4 out of 5 apples. I gave it a 3 out of 5 apples. There was a twist at the end that may put you off but overall enjoyable.

I wasn't happy with the choice for the role of Snow White--judging by the trailer alone.

This is a movie I'm looking forward to seeing with my grandchildren-along with Brave.
One I want to see - possibly without the young ones - is the the other version of a fairytale coming out soon. It's a darker version and for the life of me I cannot remember the name....something to do with a forest....(ahaahhhhh! hate the aging brain!)
