Mirror Mirror has a great deal of energy and wit and color, so much that it sometimes threatens to go right over the top. Somehow, though, it always stops short of being just too much.
75
Singh brings cheeky humor, an eccentric sensibility and an enchanting look to his re-imagined tale.

The performance that lingers after the film like a fizzy champagne buzz is Hammer's. He remains at all times deeply and persuasively sexy, but he also commits utterly to sequences that require a level of silliness that not all traditionally gorgeous young actors can give themselves over to so completely.
63
Mirror Mirror is a sumptuous fantasy for the eyes and a pinball game for the mind, as story elements collide and roll around bumping into each other.
63
The result is mixed: the affable, family-friendly motion picture is lively enough to engage young viewers but will prove something of a challenge for anyone who has gone through puberty.
60
The finery and regalia of their contributions are integral to Singh's vision, giving this mostly conventional princess story its fair share of romantic froth and more than a little moxie.
58
A dull and unbewitching movie.
50
Cleverness won't carry it. Nothing less than overarching vision is required; otherwise, the audience will laugh for 10 minutes and then start to check out. And that pretty much states the problem of Mirror Mirror.
50
As Snow White, actress Lily Collins is a washout.
38
I've been told the movie plays best with very young girls. That's an insult very young girls should not be forced to endure.
30
This is a movie drowning in flamboyant design elements and in need of a stiff shot of enchantment.
20
"Dopey" is too good a word for it.
