Trivia

One dwarf says 'Nothing beats an honest day's work', and another replies 'Beats working down a mine.' This is likely a throwback to Walt Disney's Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs (1937), where the dwarfs mined for gems. See more »

Goofs

Nathan Lane (aka Brighton) as soon as he puts up a sign of increased taxes outside the town hall, says "We are putting your tax DOLLAR'S to good use". Dollars in a period flick instead of gold and silver? See more »

Quotes

The Queen: Ten years passed, and Snow White grew older and blossomed. But the kingdom fell into an icy despair, and the queen realized that if she wanted to remain the most beautiful woman in all the land... well... Snow would have to do what snow does best. Snow would have to fall.

User Reviews

 
Julia Roberts, Nathan Lane, and Lilly Collins are pretty good in the fairy tale spoof Mirror Mirror
28 April 2012 | by tavmSee all my reviews

Just watched this fairy tale spoof of a movie with my movie theatre-working friend. Julia Roberts plays the Evil Queen who wants Snow White (Lilly Collins) killed but her henchman (Nathan Lane) is very reluctant to do so. Ms. White eventually falls in with some...well, let's just say diminutive warriors and a prince (Armie Hammer) who's being tricked into marrying the queen. What the queen does to make him fall for her is the most hilarious thing in the movie. Nothing is as funny as what I just mentioned but there's a fun atmosphere throughout even during the more intense dramatic parts. And check out the Bollywood number that ends the whole thing! Really, I'll just say that Mirror Mirror is very much worth a look.
