Mirror Mirror (2012)
A witty retelling that I thought I would hate, but came out loving
When I saw the trailer for Mirror Mirror, I wasn't expecting much. I wasn't even planning on watching it, and totally dismissed it based on the trailer. Snow White and the Huntsman looked more my speed. However, I have three baby sisters who saw the trailer and basically said, I WILL DIE IF I DON'T SEE THIS. I wasn't thrilled, short guy jokes and Julia Roberts aging? No thanks. Anyway, my sisters dragged me to see it, and I have to say, I FREAKIN' LOVED IT.
It wasn't all shallow age jokes, didn't really have any short people jokes, the Prince (Armie Hammer) was cute, and it was intelligent. So smart and witty, I loved it. It wasn't shallow, there wasn't any singing, no sugary oh-right-I-think-my-eyes-just-rolled-down-the-aisle moments. Each dwarf had like, their own individual personality and depth, not the cardboard cutouts to provide comedic relief I expected. This isn't a people version of Walt Disney's 1937 Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, which I found charming but shallow, Mirror Mirror finds it's own path taking the same basic plot (evil/jealous stepmother/queen, young beautiful girl, dwarfs , etc.) and turning it into something else. Something witty and wonderful. I really loved it.
Don't judge this one by it's trailer.
