Quotes

The Queen: Snow White. Is there a fire?
Snow White: I'm sorry?
The Queen: Is your bedroom on fire? Because I'm searching for an explanation as to why you would be out of your bedroom and in here, and my first guess was fire.
Snow White: I thought maybe I could come to the gala. You know, because today is my eighteenth birthday.
The Queen: Is it now? Oh, my. Oh, my! Snow White, maybe it is time I eased up on you, hmm? After all, you've done nothing to me. Caused no problems. And yet... there is something about you that's so incredibly... irritating. I...

Good for the lazy viewer
16 March 2012 | by (Bangkok) – See all my reviews

While this film seems to be perfectly tailored for some audiences, most discerning viewers will find Mirror Mirror to be lacking depth. Several plot fixtures are left unexplained, and in general this movie feels like the writers are trying to shove as many fantasy clichés into one movie as they can. The movie would undoubtedly have been better had the writers simply stuck to the original story, but they did not. The deviation from the classic story was not well done, and in many ways, it did not make much sense.

On a positive note, the acting was refreshingly good, particularly on the part of Julia Roberts. Roberts played the sinister queen quite excellently, adding a seething sarcasm to each line. Along with the acting, the aesthetics were good. Makeup could have been better, but costuming was very well done, and it played a large part in making the movie coherent.

In short, the positive qualities of this film were not nearly enough to make up for the awkward timing, unexplained plot mechanisms, mediocre dialogue, and unworkable mixture of different fantasy clichés. My suggestion is that you go see something else.
