Goofs

Bella and Donna go through the mirror, then somehow manage to reappear on our side to throw tea on Tuttle's wife. However, Tansy later states that one berry is good for one trip, which means that Mary-Margaret should have seven used berries (not three) as berries in the Mirror World are hard to obtain (and Bella and Donna would be making three trips).

An inferior quality kiddie flick
27 December 2001 | by (India) – See all my reviews

Magic in the Mirror is your run-of-the-mill children's movie which doesn't have much to offer...the story is stale, the acting isn't really good and the special effects are nothing to talk about. In my opinion, it would be better to take your kids to the park or something. Rating: * out of *****
